This beer pours a beautiful fall colored amber with a surprisingly active head. Aroma is pretty flat, with a faint sweet caramel malt being the only discernible note. Hopefully this is only from the bottle I acquired. Anyways...the taste is much much better. Notes of bread, malt, caramel, slight sweet sugar with a fantastic balance and palate that make this an absolutely drinkable beer. Wonderful Oktoberfest, perfect interpretation of the style foyle (435) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Sampled from 500ml bottle in pint glass.
Appearance: pours a sudsy 3" off white head that drops slowly with moderate lacing. Hazy deep golden color with mild streaming bubbles.
Aroma: toasted barley, ripe fruit and some floral hops.
Mouthfeel: fairly light body with a drying finish.
Flavor: bready malts that are sweet, but not overly so. Ripe fruit, some biscuit, and floral notes.
Overall: my first time trying this brew. Quite tasty. AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Aroma of roasted grain, bread, a touch of caramel, and floral hops. Mild taste with some hop bitterness, grain, and a bit of ashes. Slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Rec?d as a good Octoberfest. It?s what I had in mind--a drinkable lager with a slightly nutty caramel malt flavor. Delicious. (Virtually indistinguishable from Paulaner?s Marzen.) bhops (433) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Escellent beverage...Rich orange. Fluffly white head. Nose is not at all grainy. Sweet tomatoes. subtle copper penny but nothing unnattractive. Spicy bitterness. Flavors are nice as well. Promounced fruitiness with a tang and nothing round. Hops disseminate afterwards and are nobly bitter. Lovely. BeerZack (432) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Easy drinking, well balanced beer that has the same inviting maltiness as other examples of the style, but without the oft lingering sweetness. Creamy feeling natural carbonation is there for those who can appreciate it. Try this one before you say you don’t like Fest biers. WingmanWillis (430) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Keg at Brauhaus Schmitz. Pours orange gold with a thin white head. Aroma is grain, malt and a little orange. Taste is malty and has a little sweetness with some caramel and orange in there. Decent enough. mixamatt (427) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 12, 2002
Light amber color.Spicy aroma.Fruity yeasty flavour.Dry wheat bread aftertaste. My favourite German Oktoberfest so far. madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange in color with a very thin white head. Lots of little bubbles coming to the top. Aroma of bread, caramel, toasted wheat cereal. Very mild flavor, very hard to pick anything out, it is malty, I don’t detect any hops and finishes with a wheat taste that lasts for a little while. A little fruity sweetness comes through as it warms. Medium bodied, but feels a little watered down.
