COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

Clear pale yellow, thick frothy white head. Aroma- apple, grain pear. Taste is mild sweetness more like a crappy pale lager though. What the hell kind of a festbier is this? is it super traditional because it’s unlike other German Festbier’s. Medium light body, this beer is crisp clean and refreshing but again i’m not so sure it’s a good Festbier or Marzen becasue it lacks that biscuity doughy malt.

topherh (1928) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Pours clear golden with a big white head. Aroma is sweet malt, a bit of toast and hops. Flavor is sweet and malty. Decent, but really a pretty boring beer.

Bottle served in dimpled mug. Frothy foam tops a pale yellow body. Pretty, sweet, wheat nose. Sweet light-medium bodied palate. Some sticky, light bitterness on the finish. The "Fest" isnt exactly like standard domestic Christmas fare, but it isn’t a bad brew nonetheless.

Piss yellow. Grain, rice, corn, piss. These are the things that this beer both smells and tastes like. Worst beer from this good brewery that I’ve ever had.

Bottle 500ml.
Clear medium yellow orange color with a average to large, frothy - creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, toasted, light hoppy, grass. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20091113]

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.

popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 23, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 The beer pours bright and yellow with a healthy amount of white lacing. The aroma is grassy and sweet with simple but fresh malt. It’s hoppier than I was expecting. There are strong, grassy hop notes. The malt is a tad sweet but it’s a crisp, refreshing beer. I’m not usually a fan of Marzen (and this beer isn’t really brewed to style, as far as I can tell), but I find this beer quite good. It’s simple, fresh and refreshing.

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild cornish and light grassy. Caramelish and light roasted flavoured. Smooth malty finish, subdued bitterness.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a large fluffy white head that lasts well and leaves a bit of lace. Sweet, grainy aroma has notes of malt, caramel and citrus. Flavour is less sweet but otherwise identical to the aroma. Light body, thin mouthfeel and a short, slightly sweet finish. Easy to drink but nothing particularly memorable either. Not really up to the standard of most of this brewery’s beers.
