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 (799) - 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...

TedE (444) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2015
500ml bottle into glass. Sweet malt nose. Slightly cloudy yellow with towering head. A few bubbles ascend. Malty, grainy, a touch of bitterness. Highly drinkable, really nice session beer.

jamaty (1149) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Pajiza pálida, con pequeñas burbujas tipo champagne. Aroma cítrico / manzana (ligero). frutal y malteada en el sabor. Moderadamente seca y amarga. Bien de cremosidad. No llega a las estupendas hefeweizen, pero está bien.

Kita (1417) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle, 0,50l. Clear golden color with large soapy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is grassy, grainy and herbal. Taste starts with light sweet bready and toasted malt, following is refreshing grassy with dry mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Good, but not to be thrilled with it...

golden colour with firm white head. Taste of hops, little bitternes, drinkable, but not superlative.

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

odannyob (93) - 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 (545) - 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.
