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!

Pilsish nose of yeast, grass, and a bit of spice. Pours a sparkling golden. The huge mostly lasting fluffy white head leaves good lace. Neutral flavor that is mostly bready & toasted, light acidity and some bitterness to the grainy finish. Good balance, but without the sweetness I’ve come to expect from the style. The light to medium body is creamy and soft. Their exists a slight metallic feel to the finish.

50 cl bottle from the brewery outlet. Cloear gold color, thick white head. Malry aroma with grassy hops, starch. Thick body, mild sweetish aroma with bitter finish. Solid festbier, clean.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2007
Gold with a wek white head. A medium hop aroma with somewhat strong bitterness in the flavour. Finishes a little crudely and includes the taste of raw alcohol. Not worthwhile.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light blonde, fluffy head. Not you typical Marzen Oktoberfest, more like a standard German lager. Grass and lemon notes, some hay. Kind of a skunks aroma. Decent bitter finish with lively carbonation. Not good for a Marzen style beer.

Nothing much here. Poured a hazy gold. Nose was a bit musty and had that typical nose of almost every beer brewed in germany. I wish I could put my finger on what that scent is. Taste was ok with not many notes of anything. Maybe a hint of citrus but not much else. Carbonation level was good.

TedE (845) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2015
500ml bottle into glass. Sweet malt nose. Slightly cloudy yellow with towering head. A few bubbles ascend. Malty, grainy, a touch of bitterness. Highly drinkable, really nice session beer.

Enjoy this beer at an Oktoberfest party. Decent for drinking with schnitzel and french fries. Refreshing.

Reviewed 10/21/2012. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A: Pours a darker straw color with fantastic clarity. The carbonation isn’t as evident as I might have thought it would be, but it’s there. The head is a rocky-looking, three finger white color that becomes one fingers high after a short period of time. As it recedes, a nice amount of spiderweb lacing is left on the glass. S: Very zesty noble hops in this one. It actually isn’t that malty in the aroma apart from a very faint caramel sweetness. Far more of a pilsner than a marzen. T: The initial flavors are quite sweet - almost overly so, but not quite. This gradually transitions into a crisp, pleasantly biting hoppy finish. The sweetness is only slightly caramel based, but does enough to mesh with its faintly buttery midtaste. This really isn’t much of a marzen, but it’s a DAMN good sticke pilsner. M: Crisp and well carbonated, but not extremely dry. This causes some sweetness to linger on the aftertaste - which makes it seem thicker than it really is. Perhaps it’s not as easy to drink as other oktoberfests, but the way the flavor profile reverts from sweet to bitter and back again, it does a good job of keeping the palate guessing. O: I really shouldn’t complain about how it isn’t very marzen-y, because I’d have NO trouble drinking a pitcher of this in a biergarten. Actually, my only complaint is that I’m not sure I’d pay $12/6 pack for it again, given its nature.

Sdaniel90 (823) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear, fizzy, macro-style yellow colour. Aroma is of very grainy, in the German way, some citric and spice touches. Taste is very drinkable, though not much substance. Typical Festbier to drink and drink away!

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Nice aroma of noble hops and pils malt. Flavor: very mild. Not much of the nuttier, toastier notes I’m used to for Oktos/Märzens. Slightly grassier and hoppier than normal for the style, though not enough to be a standard pils. Plenty of carbonation. A decent, drinkable light beer, just not a standout or great representative of the style.
