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!

Golden body, lightly hazed with tiny pulpy bits, under a fast, white head of dishwater soap suds. Grassy aroma with lemon, berries, taffy. Flavor is rather balanced, with a lightly sweetened malty start moving to middle tart fruitiness and finishing with a mild yet crisp hop bite. Almost mid-bodied, somewhat dry. Not bad, but below average for a Märzen. ~~~~~~~~ Bottle of unknown origin.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Bottle Pours a clear yellow with a good sized white head. The lacingis okay. The head lasts well . Has an aroma of grass, and floral. Has a good carbonation. The mouthfeel is okay. Flavor is decent. Has a good sweetness and is crisp and refreshing. Has a lighter body. A watery texture. A pretty good finish with not much aftertaste. An easy drinking beer that is pretty good.

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 (1901) - 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.

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.
