On Tap, Doesn’t have the same flavor as many of the other oktoberfest beers. This beer is much lighter in color than most of the other amber colored Oktoberfest beers. Beer is a translucent yellow color with a little head. Flavor is a pretty boring light hoppy taste. Weihenstephaner produces some great beers, but this is not one of them. However, I’ve come to find out this style of beer really isn’t something I care anything for. So don’t judge this buy my rating.

larsga (7404) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2010
Medium offwhite lasting head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Light floral resiny aroma with earthy fruity notes. Dry-sweet resiny floral fruity taste with mealy notes. Delicate, harmonic, and subtle. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Light body. Dry strawy mealy floral aftertaste with light fruity notes. The aftertaste lingers for a long time. Excellent! (0.3l draft at Weihenstephaner am Hackeschen Markt.)

hawthorne00 (3714) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Bottle (into their hilarious bent World Cup glass). Pale gold, large white head. Medium bead. Aroma of rich sweet malt and earthy and spicy hops. Tastes a little less sweet than it smells, but is quite rich, honeyed and a little toasted. Balancing bitterness with a brief spicy finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Quality swill (something that doesn’t get much love around here it seems). [3.4]

Yeah, "quality swill" covers it.

Bottle pour light yellow with large frothy white head with nice lacing. Aroma grassy. Taste sweet light malts, grass, spices - light coriander, citrus, banana. I picked up a touch of skunkiness. Palate carbonated. Finish kind of bitter. Agree with others this doesn’t seem like a festbier, really it’s more of a lager with hefewiezen overtones.

Oh my! Drinking this Marzen in my new beer stein! Has a nice golden color Has a nice foamy white head. Smells a bit spicy with the aromas coming out of my beer stein! Taste is a bit spicy with a creamy texture to it. Good recommendation from my boy scotty for my first beer out of the beer stein.

scottw86 (1172) - Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Poured an amber/yellow with a white foamy stable head. Aroma has lots of pale malts with some skunkyness. Some clove and spices. Taste is slightly watery but with some good pale malt flavors. Slightly doughy with bread. Some slight floral notes as well. Finish tastes a little like rice. Overall a very solid lager, but maybe not the best example of a festbier.

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Pours a clear very pale straw with a moderate white head. Aromas of clove, banana, dried fruit, dark fruit, bubblegum, and soap. Lightly sweet cereal grain base with mild fruity tartness, notes following the aromas, and a very lightly bitter floral/herbal finish. Light-medium body, average-sharp carbonation, and a slick texture. Drinkable and inoffensive, though more like a plain old lager than a festbier to me. The sweetness of the flavors gets just a touch sickly with repeated sipping.
