COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

willblake (2653) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2008
20080927 12oz bottle from Spirits RB. Clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is mild doughy yeast and light toast notes. Mildly herby, grassy hops. Clean and very pleasant. Lively eff on the palate. Extremely drinkable while cool. This stuff seems like a dortmunder. As it warms some of the alcohol sweetly emerges and might have started to dominate but I drank that sucker down right quick. In your FACE Weihenstephaner!

MartiniFiend (104) - Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a small white head. Nice hop and malt aroma. Medium bodied and very smooth. Flavor is is a balanced mix of malts and hops with a slightly dry after taste.

tomciccateri (1007) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 26, 2008
From a brown bottle in Albuquerque, pours a clear gold color with streaming bubbles and a thin white head. Light-to-medium body, Very clean light maltiness. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish with a touch of hops bitterness. Very "light" for a Märzen but nice.

DByers (8) - , Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2008 does not count
Pours a very light golden color with full head. Slightly sweet aroma but very disquised and faint. Subtle malt taste and very light on the palate for an Oktoberfest brew. Not bursting with flavor and complexity but a good overall beer.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2008
One of the lightest pouring Oktoberfests I’ve seen, hazy straw colored with a medium frothy snow-white head. Sweet grassy aroma, light caramel. Sweet malt, super grassy, hay, light caramel, finishes bitter. A bit chalky. A very light festbier, covers the alcohol pretty well and is very easy drinking. Medium/light body with light sizzling carbonation.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Light yellow from tap. Was severed in a big old mug which suits this beer well. It is light with just a bit of sweetness. Not much more or less make it ejoyable and very drinkable.

Sammy (8719) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
Enjoyed on-tap at the Buckeye Beer Engine. Apple juice colour with some white wheat. The aroma and tase of sour wheat. Below average mouthfeel. Not up to expectations for this brewery.

Light orange, brief head. Big honey, and light malt aroma. Soft palate, but lively carbonation. Sweet malty body, also honey. Very refreshing and full-flavoured marzen.

cheap (4105) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Initial veggie cabage aroma. Clears into an acceptable clean smell in the glass. Fairly bitter on the tongue, more than I expected. Clear pale yellow color. Thin teafroth head. Nice looking bottle label, entertaining. Fine creamy carbonation. Lingering bitter biting back palate. Refreshing in its own acceptable way. Not heavy. Not as good as many other smoother octoberfests such as Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen or Schells.
