Aroma is hoppy with lots of grass, some grainy malt and fruity notes in the background. Also hints of hay. Flavour has lots of grassy hops and grainy malt. Dry, hoppy, somewhat sticky and a bit unpleasant finish. The malty feeling here is very typical to Märzens, but then again the strong hoppy notes are not.
Bottle. Yellow, clear. The first thing that hits you is a hoppy-greenish punch, which fades away pretty quickly. After that it becomes very malty on the nose; cracker-like, with a slight corn-like twang. In the midst of all of that, there’s also a firm green-hoppy theme running through.Body is medium, quite hoppy which makes it feel bitter, dry-harsh, almost tart. An ok continentally-hoppy lager, but I would expect more body, malts, sweetness from a festbier. ration (2238) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
080912. Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a high head. Aroma malts, bread and surprisingly large amount of hops. Light bodied. Not your typical Oktoberfest, but Not Bad. tiong (7278) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
500ml bottle from AlkoBeerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Pours clear orange with a foamy head. Aroma of bready malts, citrusy hops and grass. Taste is malty and hoppy with lemony and bready notes. Finish of hoppy fruits, sweetish malts and bready notes. Okay, quite hoppy oktoberfestbier.
Mild aroma is fruity sweet, apple, pineapple. Hazy golden, sparkling, short thin head. Hoppi flavor has citrus, pine, fruits, malting underneath. Crisp, sweet, fizzy carbonation, easy to drink, thin to medium body, light feel, dry and bitter finish is long. Great, refreshing. Not sure how typical oktoberfestbier but I liked a lot .
Couple of revisions inspired by fellow raters: Tbones light perfumic flowery notes and biscuity are to the point. Fruity toffee here also. Sparkling is quite short.

Clear golden color, small white head, some lace. Light perfumic flowery notes, some butter and bread. Light to medium bodied. Bready-hoppy flavor - sweet toffeish resiny notes, bisquity. Far from traditional Oktoberfestbier but not a bad lager at all.
Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts with some hops. Flavor is malts with hops. Decent. hlkanga (204) - - SEP 7, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours clear sparkling golden with medium-sized creamy white head. Fruity, sweet and quite hoppy aroma with malt, some berries, resiny hops, grain and piney woody notes. Taste of grain, piney notes, malt and mild earthyness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Bitter and slightly burning finish. Refreshing but a bit too hoppy. mikkopen (1164) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
500 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow colour, thin white head. Sweetish malty aroma with fruity notes and grassy hops. The flavour is braedy-malty, with a nicely dry and bitter hoppy finish. Tasty. BeerBaboon (2093) - FINLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Olut kaatuu lasiin vaalean kuparisena muodostaen valkoisen vaahdon. Tuoksultaan olut on ruohoisen humaloitu, sitruksinen ja viljaisen maltainen. Maku on sitruksinen, ruohoinen, katkera, keksinen, viljainen ja maltainen. Humalointi tuntuu viivyttelevän rapeana ja kuivaa suun pitkäksi aikaa. Maku voittaa tuoksun. Hiilihappoja on hieman keskimääräistä enemmän. Ihan nautittavaa tavaraa. Joskin hieman tunkkainen.
