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!

Poured a finger of head on a clear, golden colored body. The aroma is metallic and dry grain; much like a Euro pale lager.... The taste starts sweet and then alternates between metallic bitter and dry bitter. Not pleasing. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. An unpleasant experience overall.

Pale gold in color; clear with bubbles and a bubbly white head that slowly falls to a white coating. Not much lacing. Aroma is bread, corn, malt. Taste is grass, malt, sweet corn and noble hop bitterness. Though there is some slight caramel sweetness lurking in the back shed, this seems to me an atypical Oktoberfest beer and is more like a pils or classic lager. Less roasted; more corn than malt. Still, it is crisp, refreshing and enjoyable. No doubt you are drinking a German beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bu en bouteille de 50cl Bière blonde très claire magnifique, mousse onctueuse mais qui se décompose vite. Une bière vite bu, rien à dire de particulier hormis le goût important du malt et une pointe citronnée au bout.

Not much of an aroma with this beer. If anything, there was a grassy or bready pilsner type smell. It had a nice deep, gold color. Flavor was mostly a mild bitterness. Wasn’t spectacular, but I’d probably drink it again

Pours a light gold with white head. The aroma is spice, like a Belgian wit. The flavor is sour and spicy like orange peel and coriander. There is a bit of sourness to this beer. Not what I think of when I picture an Oktoberfest beer.

fraternie (826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Surprisingly light-bodied, a translucent gold. Crisp and malty with traditional Vienna flavors. Lightly dry and lightly sweet caramel backbone, and moderate bitterness.

Andy_ (722) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Straw yellow clear beer with little white head disappearing quick but not completely, leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy malty with bulk lager like maize sweetness and little grassy hoppy. Flavor is little malty and maizey sweet with that unpleasant bulk lager taste. Nice bitter aftertaste, little thinner than medium. Not much better than a cheap bulk lager.

Bottle. Pours clear gold. Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grain, toast. Taste is sweet. Quick finish. Disappointment to say the least.

DrewFace (801) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pours a golden color with decent off white head. Big malt aroma and slight hop backbone. Lots of malt flavor up front and mild hop bitterness in the finish. Some mild astringency and alcohol on the finish. Overall, a little on the sweet side.

Classic marzen. A must try but don’t expect greatness. Smooth and easy to drink. Slightly sweet. Good brew for a fall day.
