Pours a clear golden color. Dusty hay bread malt aroma and flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness and a short finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: This beer is a clear straw color with a thin white head that burns off quickly. Spotty lacing. Sweet malt and fruit in the nose, and a touch skunky. Light-bodied with a fruity character along with light grain and hops flavors. The finish is short and leaves a bready malt aftertaste. So-so overall.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2011 Pours with a 3 finger head that quickly dissipates but leaves the best lacing I have seen yet in an Oktoberfest. The body of the beer is orangeish/gold and significantly lighter than a typical Oktoberfest.
Smells between a typical munich helles and an Oktoberfest. Malty but with some noble hops balancing it.
Edt: Got a fresh bottle. The taste is much like a Hacker-Pschorr maerzen, but with a little bit more hops and a bit lighter on the palate.
It is a killer Festbier, just get it fresh, I made the mistake of having older bottles in years’ past.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed on-tap at the Buckeye Beer Engine. Apple juice colour with some white wheat. The aroma and tase of sour wheat. Below average mouthfeel. Not up to expectations for this brewery.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Temple Bar Rotschild. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy and bready malt and some diacetyl. Sweetish flavor with grainy and bready malt, some butterscotch and a drier finish, mildly bitter and a bit crisp. Light to medium-bodied. Probably better without poe diacetyl (possibly from dirty tap lines?) but still quite easy-drinking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Clear, pale yellow lager with a large, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is sweet and floral with heavy notes of orange blossom honey. Sweet, honeysuckle flavor with barely enough bitterness to prevent this malt bomb from becoming downright cloying. Medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lightly sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Detroit. Slightly hazy, mostly clear golden appearance with a white head. Grassy, noble hoppy, huge pale/pils malty aroma. Crisp, rich pale/pils malty flavor with a straw, grassy hoppy flavor. Pretty good brew that’s in the weisn style rather than a märzen.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Sweet lemony malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lemon peel and barley/corn malt flavor with a moderate bitter finish. Pretty hoppy for a German beer - strong cheap lager flavors. Not as clean tasting as most Oktoberfest beers.
