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!

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2013
16.9oz Bottle. The pour was a light golden yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that quickly receded down to a very small collar and had poor spotty lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt, herbal hops and a sweaty yeast with a light hint of caramel along with a mild fruity ester. The taste was mildly malty with a light caramel sweetness and a strong grainy feel throughout, with the finish having a very light bitterness and a slight medicinal presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a grainy bitter taste left behind to fade into the background very slowly. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall this was a brew that did not offer up much flavor or anything else for that matter. Although it did have a good smooth drinkability and a very light feel, which would allow you to drink a few without feeling blotted...

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.

Caramelly, slightly malty in the middle. Hints of caramel and malts in the end. Rather lught bodied, medium carbonated, quite drinkable beer.

Cybercat (5111) - 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!

Darwenus (885) - Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Yadda yadda yadda. Pale yellow, average head, faint fruity and yeasty esters, a tiny bit of hop tingle on the finish. Also, it annoys me that these German beers are bottled in the metric system and translate to 11.2 ounces instead of the 12 ounces I am used to as a by-God ’Merican. If I’m gonna drink a beer I don’t really enjoy, I want there to be a lot of it.

From the bottle. Pours light tan. Has slight sweet maltyness and a little hop bite. Glad it’s oktoberfest time.
