This grassy German beer is extremely drinkable and pleasantly malty, with hops present but hardly bitter. It reminds me somewhat of a simpler version of Pinkus Munster Alt, which ranks as one of my favorites. Don’t be afraid to try this one: America is taking beer to new plateaus, but the Germans are still sensei.

Cajun (459) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - OCT 18, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 Bottle - Pours a clear gold, with fizzy white head. Aroma of pale malts, refrigerated flowers, slight skunk, biscuit. Flavors of pale malts, fruity, floral, lemon, hay, cough drop/medicine taste, bitter hops middle, dry finish. This gave an overall impression of a Kolsch or Premium Lager rather than an Oktoberfest/Marzen.

Beautiful pour in a tall glass, golden with plenty of foam. Almost no aroma, but first taste is good. Strangely sweet at first, the taste is very fresh. This is a very drinkable beer.

AbbeyRoade (547) - Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Unfortunately I believe the specimen I purchased from Hy-Vee off of Conley Rd in Columbia, MO was exposed to light to an excessive degree and therefore oxidized which resulted in this particular bottle having a skunky odor and first-taste. I tried to place this aside knowing that Weihenstephaner brews are overall excellent quality. Oktoberfest/Marzen brews aren’t my favorite, either. All in all, a bready, dry, somewhat tart brew. Not bad.

On tap at World of Beer (Charlottesville, VA). Aromas of fresh grain, grass, bready. Clear gold with a mostly lasting white head. Mostly dry, bready, grassy. Medium bodied.

Light, crisp, yet a little dry, wheaty taste. Interesting spiciness, combo of flavors.
