COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 14, 2007
2007 bottles from Costco -- Green glass, but inside cardboard container, so no light issues. This beer has the expected qualities of an Oktoberfest: big and relatively complex malt flavors (bread, Munich malt fruit), full body, and wonderful color. The main detractor was the significant sulfur component that made the aroma undesirable and slightly vegetal-like. Sulfur is not uncommon in lagers, but it still detracts. Overall, a good beer and not too disappointing.

0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: malzig, getreidig, würzig. Erscheinung: goldenes Bier, flacher, weißer Schaum. Geschmack: süß, leicht würzig, kaum bitter. Nachgeschmack: Süße schmeckt fast künstlich. Gesamt: süffig, sollte es auch sein, sonst würde man es nicht literweise schlucken können.

Bottle sample at Cafe Brecht Amsterdam Pubcrawl. 15.10.2016. Thanks guys for sharing. Pour it clear golden color with medium white head. Aroma quite flat, nothing. Taste sweet honey, some grains, continues with flat note, nothing special, watery and easy drinkable, light body, slick feel, average carbonation.

mt_hall (193) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
A clear amber colour with a small white head. A bready, yeasty nose and similar toasty yeast flavours. Some warmth from the alcohol. Not bad.

Bottle, brought back from Munich. Light pale golden colour, bright, white head. Quite floral aroma and taste, sweetish, not hot with booze, drinks easily. Nice.

ozzatoadisback (106) - ITALY - OCT 26, 2016
Golden colour, maybe slightly darker, not so big white head, decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is mostly malt-forward with grain and cereal, some background herbal and lemon notes. Taste follows the aroma with average sweetness and moderate bitterness. Quick, empty finish. Medium body and average carbonation, a bit heavier than your average german lager but still goes down quite easy. Ok, but fairly uninteresting.

Bottle at home. Aroma is grainy malt, straw, touch of hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Not a bad Festbier.
