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 a clear pale gold with a thin, soapy, white head. Aroma is toast, sweet hay, mineral water and grassy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, toast, hay, cereal, floral and spicy hops and a hint of honey. A little boozy if it isn’t really cold. Light body, slick feel and light to moderate carbonation. Reminds me more of a pils that is big on alcohol strength and low on flavor.

Lost review from last fall. Neither the tastiest nor easiest to spell Oktoberfest beer. Pale gold, sweet and biscuity.

Bottle, 500mL. Home. A pale golden beer with few bubbles ; medium white head witha poor retention. Grainy aroma, herb. Medium sweet, light dry bitter refreshing. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation, short herbal finish. Overall, average drinkable german beer.

odannyob (83) - Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured from a chilled 11.2 ounce, brown glass bottle into a dimpled glass; 1st impression was of the cloudy golden hues emanating; thin head; an initial, mild skunky taste soon dissipating into a quick hopped, first, 2nd a maltiness. The 6 pack container has on it a photograph of 4 nuns, sitting in the sun at what looks like a garden table, laughing and of course, enjoying a beer with mother superior’s glass already empty.

Drjohnrock (519) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Poured from 1 pint, .9 ounce bottle labeled "Weihenstephaner Oktoberfest", purchased at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on October 3, 2014. Medium gold hue, malty nose with slight skunkiness, light to moderate bittersweet toasted malt flavor which could be more robust. This might have been a bit old--would revisit this, preferably on draft.

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.

Fin slightly better log almost a full yellow pale in the van color not very cloudy little see-through. Does not deliver a big head. Definitely a Bavarian Oktoberfest in contrast to the Americans that's a richer flavor with the duppel bach color. Drinking this from a 1 pint .9 fluid ounce bottle labeled Oktoberfest beer a nice subtle refreshing lager for the autumn season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (1181) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden straw hue with thick fizzy white head. Aroma is bread, cereal, slight sulphur, slight clove. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy hop following and slight sulphur finish. Overall this is a quite enjoyable Oktoberfest brew.
