A very nice crisp Oktoberfest style beer. Not as sweet as other Oktoberfests and is very smooth and drinkable. This is turning into a daily drinker while it is still available. Aroma is good caramel and aged - caramel finish that is neither too sweet nor too bitter.

Overall smells pretty clean and bready with only a hint of nuttiness and maybe a touch of caramel. Flavor is what you would expect from the nose. A very clean, crisp beer with a mild roasty and nutty character and just the tiniest bit of caramel sweetness. Extremely drinkable.

A really great beer. It really hit the palate during the Oktoberfest tour. I would have it again if offered

This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a golden yellow transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. A cap of a white head sustains and dissipates at a nice pace. Thin mild lace.
The aroma takes in sweet biscuity/bready thick maltiness flowing into semi-sweet to underscored grassy bitter hops. Light honey and floral.
The flavor revels in the balance of it all. Nice sweet smooth malty biscuit aftertaste. Sly semi-sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it . Low carbonation helps bring about smooth sweetness.
Overall, why argue with the Germans about if this is any good or not. For the style, one knows it’s top notch.

A great oktoberfest, coppery amber with a small white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste is nutty malt with a hint of honey and hop in the finish. Very similar to my favorite version of this style, Paulaner Wiesn, with a value price and a bit more cereal flavor. Considering I could get a case of the Warsteiner Oktoberfest for less than $1 a bottle with the rebate in 2015, I am a fan. Sadly, I have not seen it around at my favorite distributors in 2016.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 Comes out of the tap a clear dark golden amber with a fine-bubbled pale beige head. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity and slightly hoppy. Strong, malty flavor has undertones of apple and pear and a hint of hops. Smooth, fizzy, lively texture leaves behind a nice tingle.

First time I had this was at a oktoberfest celebration in nj outside in the rain poured from the tap of a beer truck. I only recall such detail if the beer was amazing.

On tap at the Lime Spider in Akron. Good, smooth taste. Kind of pumpkiny. Went down fast.
