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!

Yellow pour with thin white head. Malty, grassy, honeyed aroma. More honeyed malt on the taste with a a little bit of grass and hops on the finish. Very nice mouthfeel.

Muggus69 (1685) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2009
500ml bottle. BB 13.06.09 Pours a clean, lively straw-yellow body with a moderate sized white foam head. Cereally pilsner malt straightup, touch of honey and biscuit, faintest hint of floral hops. Reasonably high carbonation, good fullness to the body, slightly clingy malt texture. Husky dryness manifests itself mid-palate. Quite simple flavour. Pale malts drive the body; biscuit, honey, cereal bran/husk. Slight citrusy hops come through towards the finish, hint of herbs linger with a grainy dryness and low bitter note. Quite clean overall. A style I don’t come across all too much, but for the most part this seems a bit underdone. Bit too pale, not enough malt richness or complexity for me, more like a slightly stronger Helles than anything.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2009
12oz bottle from BevMo! Typical Oktoberfest beer. Fairly light in color, with a lot of grains and hops. Some malt component. Easy drinking , session beer, the proper beer for the Fest.

alobar (3213) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grass and lemon. Great mouthfeel! On the palate is lemon, citrus with just a touch of hops. Has the feel of a great summer beer.

Bottle. Aroma is distinctly malty with a mild note of noble hopsw. A barely amber hued golden in the glass with a spott offwhite head that clings to the edge of the glass. No persistent lacing. Flavor is fairly neutral just a slightly fruit malt body with a mild grassy hop finish. Light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Now that I am entering this beer in I see that it is classified as a Marzen a style this beer shares very little with. I bet this would be really good fresh.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2009
This is a marzen? Really!?! Anyhoo: Grassy hop aroma with a pretty rich dry malt flavor. Well hopped with a slight bitter, dried herbs, aftertaste.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle, pours a hazy golden yellow with minimal amounts of blotchy white suds atop. Looks very inviting. Nose is grassy and slightly sour lemon. Flavor is a gentle sour note.. citrus (lemon and tangerine) and malt undertones. Mouthfeel is medium to medium light. Finely bubbled and highly sessionable, very accommodating to the style though this brew could be argued to venture into the realms of a wit and hefe. Finish is long and sweet, sour, then dry. Highly Underrated @ 2.91/5.0
