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!

A slightly sweet märzen with a medium yellow body and a nice white head and impressive lacing. Slightly earthy smell with hints of spice. Taste is crisp, hoppy with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

jamestulloch (3377) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2015
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.

Bulk_Carrier (3644) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - SEP 16, 2015
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.

kidmartinek (4631) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2015
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.

sturmthis (1099) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2015
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.

Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
Cear golden color with a a frothy white head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is like aroma with spicy notes. Medium to high carbonation with a medium body and sweet bitter finish.

ttoadee (1276) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Pale gold pour, 2 fingers of frothy white head. Nose is malt, plain and simple. Lightly bitter. Middle is hearty bread, some Pils malt, unripe melon. Finish is dry and a touch spicy. Medium bodied. Good.

DrunkSanta410 (812) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear pale yellow, little head with no retention. Aroma is straw, grass, light spice and faint malts. Taste is faint honey and caramel, grass, straw, faint spice. A little bland. Light body and medium carbonation. Better options exist in this style.

Evolutionary (469) - Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2015
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.
