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!

Pours pale straw yellow w/ a shallow semi creamy white froth. Aromas of fresh malt and hay. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are malty, grainy, and boozy w/ hay and vegetal w/ corn. Slight bttering on the finish. Overall: doesn’t drink like an Oktoberfest. Some of the flavors are offensive.Not recommended.

Bottle from Super Saver. This one is an insult to marzens, and just might be an insult to pale lagers. I’m just telling it like it is! Pale 3-beer urine yellowish pour with minimal white head. Decent lace rings. Aroma is pale malt, hopcitrus, some grains. The flavor is pale malty, with slight graininess, hopcitrus, and some honey soapiness. Medium palate. Forgettable.

Ohhh stop it! This isn’t a marzen. Massive grassy hop aroma screams cheap pale euro lager. there is a sweeter malt aroma going on underneath, but it’s buried in that awful grassy aroma. Yhe body is a plae, ever so slightly orange tinted, yellow with a thin, but clingy white head. Fore is honey-tinged malt with a watery middle and grainy finish. Big dissapointment froma brewery I like.

Maybe a more traditional Fest beer, but not a tasty one. Golden lager with hint of grass in the nose. Taste is hay, grass, subdued fruitiness. Carbonation is moderate but it doesn’t really matter. Just not much to say about this one.

looks like pee, but the head is very nice, creamy almost, aroma is sweet, mild and maybe yolk, flavour is bitter and hoppy, acidic, good quality, lacks malt

Bottle, 5.8% at KØ07. Bready aroma. Pale yellow colour, very small white head. The flavour is quite thin, some bread. Disappointing.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Pretty weak example of a German Oktoberfest beer. Pale golden color, filtered and almost clear. Not much malt character for the style, almost more like a standard German Pils than a full malty Oktoberfest. Crisp and drinkable, but I expected much more from Weihenstephaner.

This was not really of the marzen style but okay nonetheless. I don’t think I would pay the high price for it per 6 pack, but a single bottle may be okay.

Eh... just a so so beer overall. Not much at all to the aroma - some fruity notes, but not much that was very noteworthy. Flavor was pretty bland. There are better Weihen brews out there.

Weihenstephaner makes many great beers, but this is not one of them. Festbiers served in Germany usually are crystal clear with huge heads served in one-liter mugs. This had almost no head at all and was cloudy. The taste was fairly "hoppy" and not bitter and not too tasty. It does go down easily though. It is the kind of beer you can drink at a volksfest without realizing you have imbibed seven liters until you have left the beer tent and searched for your hotel in vain for four hours, weaving from street to street.
