Bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Crystal clear golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grain, freshly cut vegetables and a faint hint of banana. Flavour of lemon, grass and cereal. Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Simple and clean. Very drinkable for the ABV.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was poured into a mug (correct/traditional glassware, screw that proper glassware bs).
Anyways, the appearance was a clear yellow color with a big transparency about it allowing a light carbonation rising to fill a light one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely. Light rings of foaminess stick nicely.
The smell had a big "corn-like" sweetness rolling into sly grassiness. There’s a sweet corn-like aftertaste and a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a purely awesome sessionability about it. Smooth creamy bliss rolls over my tongue.
Overall, best Oktoberfest I’ve ever had. Smell and taste are right on spot. This is what every brewer hopes to brew for the style. Weihenstephaner does it again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow. Sweet nose. Sweet pils flavor but the malt breaks it up a bit and it tastes like a decent pils just with added sweetness.

On draft. Clear golden color with one finger head. Sweet malty aroma, grassy. Taste is similar, easy to drink and not too sweet. Different than what I expect from the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from giant eagle new Albany. Figure the beer would be better since it's the worlds oldest brewery. Nose is cereal and mild. Lighter body and smooth. Banana and cereal and clove notes. Mild carbonation that goes well. Not horrid but would look for another.
