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!

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2010
I like this one a lot. Not the usual rust-colored, blandly malty Oktoberfest. This is more of a heavy Helles, not unlike those "Spezialbieren" you see from time to time. Big and malty, but with elegence, something along the lines of Ayinger Jahrhundert.

Dorado limpio y espuma blanca. Aromas de cereal, ligero floral y sulfuroso suave. Cuerpo ligero y sabor como en aroma con final seco y sulfuroso equilibrado.

Kauge (1591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle from Sip. BB 22.06.2017. Pours pale golden, clear body with a bit of floaties. Good off-white head that retains and laces nicely. Straw aroma with grassy hops, pretty nice. Tastes of malts (loads of cereal notes), with dry and grassy bitterish finish. Very dry on the palate, with thin but active carbonation, and - as advertised - rich body. Simple but well made. I’d love this to be available year-round if I were a lager guy.

wombat23 (694) - Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle. Clear straw color with a white head. Nose of biscuit, hay, light malts. Taste follows nose, with some fruitiness and sweetness. Mildly bitter, crisp finish. Very drinkable.

sjohnny (512) - - SEP 21, 2016
Malt. Yeast. Unlit pipe tobacco. Not quite clear light gold with a bright white head that leaves a thin film of bubbles on the top. Light bodied. Super malty. Slightly hoppy. A little earthy. Slightly leafy. Super smooth with just a little hop bite on the finish. Very nice.

scoth (667) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Pours light gold with a medium white head, good retention. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, straw, and earth. Light body, good carbonation. Mildly sweet, lingering mild earthy bitter finish. The roast seems too light for a marzen, but it is a nice hearty German lager.

Rask0lnikov (749) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy, golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Slightly grassy, bitter, slightly malty, slightly caramelly aroma. Slightly grassy, bitter at first. Caramelly, slightly malty in the middle. Hints of caramel and malts in the end. Rather lught bodied, medium carbonated, quite drinkable beer.

Cybercat (5119) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Pours clear solar yellow with a thick and fairly persistent eggshell head. Aroma delivers zesty fresh malt riding fruity and hoppy tones. Flavor not only ramps up the aroma’s offerings, it also tosses in more than a snip of honey. Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz, but this is still an enjoyable brew. Glückliches Oktoberfest!
