Draft at Hofbrau Beer Garden in Panama City Beach. Golden in the glass with a white head that left some lasting and good lace. Light aromas of corn and spices. The flavor found spices with a light citrus and malt mix. Light body. Very subdued oktoberfest. TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Very pale gold color almost clear, a lasting frothy white foam head and very little action in terms of carbonation. A lemon aroma thats also piney and hoppy. Not really a wheat or malt aroma behind it. The taste has more malt behind it as compared to the aroma but not what you would expect of an Oktoberfest style of American crafte types that have a darker color.It is clean and crisp with a perfect amount of hops - if that sounds like a bud commercial, well this is what bud should taste like. A great great lager entirely unlike my idea of an Oktoberfest but entirely bohemian. basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours light gold with thin head. Aroma and flavor were of apple juice and little else. Very light bodied. Certainly a clean taste, but does not have the complexity of other Octoberfests. sirPino (883) - Zawiercie/Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 27, 2008

Bottle brown, 500 ml,
Appearance pours shiny, beautiful golden, crystal clear body with a typical gentle carbonation of the body contributing to the vast, huge, dense, compace, frothy, regular in structure, creamy white head, head is quite huge in size, very slowly collapsing and giving nice lacing, perfectly looking for its style,
Aroma front is dusty, chalky, cardboard and papery nose, gentle lemon lime spicy hoppy profile, well balanced and combined aromas, classic Oktoberfest Bier fitting perfectly to the style and creating a norm, all in all aroma is gentle but noble and denoting well brewed beer,
Flavour front is very chalky and dusty, than gentle sweetness with notes of clementine, lemon, grapefruit seeds, coming towards bitter oriented and mainly sour, dry finish, much more dry than many Oktoberfest/Marzens in fact the dryness Oktoberfest that Ive tried, very spicy and clean finish, finish duration is medium to long,
Palate body is medium, texture is dry, carbonation on palate is soft to moderate, finish feel is dry, highly astringent, chalky, gently bitter and generally clean and fresh

And the German beer safari continues.
Bought at Trinkgut.
Köstritzer glass used.
Small head and mostly diminishing.
A bit dry texture, soft carbonation.
Hay and straw and i mean a lot. Moderate but biting hops, good balance. Nice citrus taste.
Oktoberfest beers are rarely exciting, and this one isnt either but its well balanced has a pretty robust body for its type and strenght. I was a bit surprised actually.
Still maybe only really good if you eat a spicy and yummy schnitzel with it. A bit too boring but drinkable.

12oz green bottle, poured into a lager glass. HMO pours orange-yellow with a larger than average creamy white head. It has a very typical lager aroma consisting mostly of hard water, soap and metal. The body is soft. The hops are present but subtle, acting as a supporting ingredient and not a starring one. This beer is not terribly malty either. It is easy drinking and refreshing if unremarkable. hayduke (5207) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 3, 2008
From a sixer purchased at Bevmo for just $7,99 this poured a clear yellow with a foamy white head, and good lacing. Nose of caramel malts and grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor show some hoppy bitterness, and he finish is bitter. Nothing fancy and quite drinkable. bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Golden color with a huge creamy off-white head. Lots of Noble hop aroma. Medium body with creamy, but biting carbonation. Flavor is a bit bready with lots of spicy/grassy hop. Finishes bitter. Pretty good lager. esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Pours yellow and crystal clear. Medium head is white, sopay and quite fast diminishing, Thin but ok lasting lace. Malty aroma is grainy, alcoholic and there is some hops. Flavor is sweetish malty, alcoholic and slightly bitter in the finish. Sweetness is balanced by the hops towards the finish. Palate is soft. Quite carbonated, but in a nice fully way. Medium to full bodied. Very easty to drink - a lot.
