COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

Poured orangish copper color with little head that faded to nothing. Had a light malt aroma with average oktoberfest taste. I can’t get onboard with these oktoberfest beers. They all taste to similar and watered down. This version is no different and is quite tasteless. NOT IMPRESSED

Bottled (thanks drewbeerme!). Amber colour, beige small head. Aroma is malts, hops, some yeast and vegetables. Flavour is malts, hops, some vegetables and a bit earthyness. Clean for it’s style, but otherwise not so exciting.

Bottled (BB 01/2008)
Clear amber color, small off-white head. Bready, hoppy, light aroma. A bit sweetish, some late bitterness. Nicely balanced, good sweetish malty profile. I like it, stylish.

12oz. Pretty sad looking pour, nice copper amber hue but a thin head that is gone in 10 seconds. Soft, disappointing carbonation, but a malty body that saves this one from a total loss. Not the worst Maerzen I’ve had, but I would like to see a better pour with more complexity.

Copper. Good malt bready/caramel aroma with some hops. Taste is moreso malt. Well balanced.

mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2007
The malt aroma seems authentic enough, but the pour lacks the expected firmness and hop lacing. A clean malt flavor is let down by somewhat harsh hops. Festbier lacks the complexity to compete with the best German Marzens.

From a bottle poured amber with little head. Nice full malty flavor with spice. Good finish.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Toasty ,cereal malt, just like an authentic German Oktoberfest should smell like crisp clean malts in taste, with just a hint of candy sucker sweetness,drys out in finish with a lingering hop bitterness in finish,which actually becomes a little aggressive towards the middle of your glass

This beer smells a bit like honey and raisons. It is milky bronze in color and has a very small head. The flavor is sweet with a nice clean finish. An enjoyable Oktoberfest!!
