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!

Temptation (255) - - NOV 29, 2012
Very yeasty aromas to dough and spices, with an industrial lager-like appeareance. Nice white head, persistent, with no lace. Mouthfeel is very watery, bland, with notes to spices, maybe fruits, and slightly salty. No malts. Pine style hops in mouth. In my opinion, the worst Weihenstephaner I’ve ever tasted. It has nothing at all. Deceiving.

DrunkSanta410 (649) - 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 (400) - 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.

Pale golden with a frothy white foam. Aroma of yeast and hops. Flavor is yeast, banana, hops, corn, hay, and Bavaria. Pretty good. You know.

bluejacket74 (1570) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2015
500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The aroma is nice but a bit light, the brew smells like bready/grainy malt, toasted malt, and some grassy hops. The taste is similar to the aroma (but stronger), and there’s also some apple fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and goes down easy with a good amount of carbonation. Worth a try at least once, at $3.49 a bottle it’s not a bad deal at all, I’d pick it up again at that price.

TedE (542) - 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.

jamaty (1329) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Pajiza pálida, con pequeñas burbujas tipo champagne. Aroma cítrico / manzana (ligero). frutal y malteada en el sabor. Moderadamente seca y amarga. Bien de cremosidad. No llega a las estupendas hefeweizen, pero está bien.

Kita (1495) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle, 0,50l. Clear golden color with large soapy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is grassy, grainy and herbal. Taste starts with light sweet bready and toasted malt, following is refreshing grassy with dry mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Good, but not to be thrilled with it...

golden colour with firm white head. Taste of hops, little bitternes, drinkable, but not superlative.

Lost review from last fall. Neither the tastiest nor easiest to spell Oktoberfest beer. Pale gold, sweet and biscuity.
