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!

Draugh ("Weihenstephaner Festbier")
It’s an oktoberfest/märzen. Golden color, creamy white head. Sweet malty and yeasty nose. Medium-bodied. Malty in the finish, some fruity hops with trefoil and grass. Clean but not very interesting.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Draught. Slighly hazy, tepid brown with smallish head. Clean malt flavor, but a little thin for my liking. Faint hop flavor with clean, but not lingering aftertaste.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2006
A yellow beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with a dusty hop note, on a very clean malty back ground. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of grain, leading to a dry hoppy and rather bitter end. The hops sticks around on the palate. A very clean beer, that can be drunk in large quantities.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2006
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.

anders37 (23044) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2006
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow colour with a big longlasting white head. Malty grassy aroma. Smooth sweet malty grainy and slightly grassy flavor. Some hints of hops. Malty and bitter aftertaste.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 The aroma is sweet corn malt with grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a medium head. The flavor is like the aroma but with a touch of citrus and a hint of soapy bitterness. The palate is thin but not to the point of being watery. This is not that bad but not great.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Medium yellow with a small off white head. Aroma is bready, coppery, flowers, grain. Coppery taste which to me tastes to weak to be an Oktoberfest. Pretty weak.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Not much to this one. Gold, white head, aroma of grass and malt. Light spice and yeast with the hops to make it even lighter. Still better than a Budweiser, though not by much.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear pale golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Light aroma of sweet malt, yeast, and light hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Very light but refreshing and good.

MissK (20) - Cleveland Heights, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Yellow-ish color with a small head. Looks like it has little carbonation, but tastes like it has a lot. Smells of citrus, yeast, and slightly skunky. Tastes light, acidic, with little aftertaste. Hits the back of the tongue - good beer for a hot day.
