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!

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Week but ok hoppy aroma. Nice bitter flavor, average bitter finish. Watery palate. There are better festbier around.

Zeswaft (1494) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2006
This is the exact opposite of what I was expecting. Aren’t Oktoberfests dark in color and rich? This is crystal clear and almost lighter than a Miller Lite. Tastes like Czechvar. Watery and a little bitterness. Absolute disappointment from what I thought was one of the best German breweries. I could see michael bala thinking this was a quality beer.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
Botte. Very light in appearance - clear golden with a sudsy large white head and lacing. Straw and hay aroma with mild dough sweetness and herbal character. Flavour is quite sweet and toasty with a good dose of herbal grassy hops in the finish. I found it was disproportionately sweet though and as such made it less of a session for me.
Purchased at Bello Vino in Ann Arbor during the month of December in 2006.

Padron4KM (702) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Moderate lacing.

Aroma is grassy and biscuty.

Flavor is mildly bitter, light grain, acidic finish.

I expect better from this brewery.

DarkMagus (473) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Ridiculously huge and sort of impressively white frothy head atop a clear yellow body. Aroma was mildly grainy and malty with a bit of sweetness. The flavor was much more intense than the aroma, with a lot of the sweet grainy flavors. Very clean and super easy to drink. I can imagine having a huge stein of this and getting good and drunk. Not the greatest brew really, but still pretty solid for what it is. Light and easy, good for those who want to go the distance.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle: Pours a clear color with a light white head. The nose is lightly fruity with some crisp pilsner malts and light nuttiness along with a fruity yeast thing. The flavor is a little thin with alcohol and fruity biscuit malts playing mostly. The finish is brief and crisp, easy drinking oktoberfest but needs a little more in the malt department to remain entertaining.

Karol (721) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 1, 2014
Bottled. I am not much of a German helles fan and this tastes a lot like a helles with more hops than usual for a helles. Clear golden color, head vanished quickly. Floral or herbal aroma of hops and a bit fruity. Taste is sweet malt and minor bitter hops with a strong alcohol presence in the finish. Drinkable but like I said not my glass of beer.

DSG (8665) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 17, 2014
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.

Poured into a tumbler on 10.2013. A: Light gold. Frothy head. S: Grainy. T: Grainy. Also getting some bitterness. Malty aftertaste. M: Smooth. O: This is a good märzen, but it’s not my favorite. It is a a solid example of the style, though.

Sweet light and grainy. A light Oktoberfest that is drinkable and pleasant enough.
