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!

A nice golden color with good carbonation and a small head. It smells of grains and malt with just a hint of hops. Not the best Octoberfest I have but no so bad either. It is smooth but just a bit too smooth and a bit skunked-like.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma is malt and grain faintly reminiscent of the style. Taste is a weaker version of your normal Oktoberfest. It’s good, but it’s not quite among the great.

I was surprised to drink this Christmas Eve. My brother had a nice selection in the beer fridge. Golden Marzen with a few large bubbles floating in the foam. German O-Fest in all its average glory.

Pours hazy pale golden with a white head. Nose is light malt, a touch of mint and cardboard. Same in the flavor.

Not bad. his beer starts out with a bitter (not hoppy) taste followed by a smooth, mahogany finish. Not much else.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2010
Pours pale gold with a large fading head. Nose shows grassy hops with faint spicy notes along with tempting bready malt. Flavours show a little of the above hops with some bready, almost grainy, malt in the background. Nice low carbonation and moderately-light body.

Pours straw with thick white head and foamy lacing. Notes of straw and hay. Balanced taste with a slightly bitter finish. Crisp.

On Tap, Doesn’t have the same flavor as many of the other oktoberfest beers. This beer is much lighter in color than most of the other amber colored Oktoberfest beers. Beer is a translucent yellow color with a little head. Flavor is a pretty boring light hoppy taste. Weihenstephaner produces some great beers, but this is not one of them. However, I’ve come to find out this style of beer really isn’t something I care anything for. So don’t judge this buy my rating.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of pilsnery hops and yeast. The flavor is similar - much more like a pilsner than a marzen. Grassy and a bit skunky, with little of the malt backbone that one would expect from a Festbier. Carbonated mouthfeel. Not what I was expecting, and rather disappointing.
