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!

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
Süßlich getreidiger Antrunk, geringe Herbe. Weich, sehr sehr süffig. Die helle Malzigkeit steigt, damit verbunden auch die Würzigkeit. Vollmundig, süß, süffig – alles in richtigem Verhältnis zueinander. Gut! 12/12/14/12//12

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2013
It’s hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, flower and bread, it’s very inviting. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of bread, flower, fruit and malt, and the finish is slightly dry. It’s very harmonic and easy to drink.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, yellow pour with a short lived white head. S: The nose is bready and biscuity with a slight spiciness and some lightly floral and citrusy hops. T: There’s plenty of spicy and sweet orange hop flavor. The malt provides a bit of bready flavor and substance, though the beer is fairly light. M: The body is quite light on the tongue with a bubbly carbonation. D: I don’t think Weihenstephaner makes a bad beer, and this one follows that trend. A nice light beer with some pleasant flavor.

bierkoning (9822) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2004
Not a dunkel, but a märzen. Malty, flowery and hoppy aroma and flavor. Just a bit of orange and banana. Medium to full bodied. A hint of metal in the aftertaste. Well made, but not my favorite.

madsberg (9634) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2006
Bottled. Light golden coloured. Clear. Dense off white head. Crisp and fruity aroma. Light herbal. Flavour is full of fruitsweetness balanced by a subtle herbal touch. Is medium bodied. Dry mouthfeel. Very fresh and easy to drink. Has a light bitter end. Quite good oktoberfest in my book.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottled fro Asda, Leamington Spa. Yellow gold with light head. Light malty beer with just the faintest hints of spiciness lingering in the background. There is a citric, lemony foreground, some hops and a gentle carbonation. It’s fine and went well with a Chinese Takeaway.

pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2007
Bottle: Pale and greenish-golden with a persistent frothy head, unexpected aroma: distinctive aromatic, a bit grassy hops, completed by some fruity grains; quite dry, moderate bitter flavour, rather light bodied for a beer of 5.8%; moderate bitterness, sweet malt and some aromatic hops, not to forget the tinge of vanilla, in the finish. More a "Pils de luxe" than a Festbier.......

Keg (St. Urhos, Helsinki)
Light orange, brief head. Big honey, and light malt aroma. Soft palate, but lively carbonation. Sweet malty body, also honey. Very refreshing and full-flavoured marzen.
