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!

Salmoniform (1281) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden straw hue with thick fizzy white head. Aroma is bread, cereal, slight sulphur, slight clove. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy hop following and slight sulphur finish. Overall this is a quite enjoyable Oktoberfest brew.

2.3
ComradeK (1269) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow, with a reasonable head, and excellent lacing, and thus looks quite reasonable. However, from here it goes downhill rapidly. It smells insipid and watery, and bears a bizarre similarity to the smell of flour and water. There is the merest hint of hops to redeem this. There are some spicy hops to start off, but these fade into an oddly off-sweet finish. On the palate it is far too watery. Overall, this is a pretty poor effort. If this is how Bavarians celebrate, as the bottle claims, then I will only ever go there in times of national mourning.

smaynard6000 (1266) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a sparkling golden color with average-sized white head. Carbonation is lively. Sweet malty aroma with grain notes and a bit of fruitiness. Quite sweet, a bit too much for me. Light bodied. Not as good as I had hoped it would be.

3.5
arnold931 (1261) - Iowa, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with very little white head. Nose and taste is a ton of DMS. Otherwise typical lager flavor.

3.1
DandyWolfFloyd (1257) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Aroma - little spicy and grassy. Appearance - pale yellow body with good nucleation. The head is about 1" and white settles slowly. Taste - Saaz hops and some caramel malt, well balanced. Palate - the body is light, carbonation average, and finish appropriately bittered.

3.1
Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Pours a lasting white head with a golden body. Aromas of grass, earth, and yeast. Flavors of grassy hops, toffee, clean, yeast. FInish is dry.

2.8
Holdwine (1240) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle. Lighter than I would have thought. Not quite "deep golden color". Slight skunk on the nose. Enough malt to keep you drinking. Hoppy for a fest beer leading to a bitter finish.

2.7
BiddleBrau (1238) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Clear gold white head some visible carbonation. Mild aroma of corn and bread. Corn and some pale malt sweetness. A light Helles. Was hoping for a bit more malt profile here but it is what it is.

3.8
rjplumer (1235) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Has a nice floral aroma. Mild bitterness. Clear deep gold color. Reminds me of a pilsner in a way. A pleasant brew overall. Sweet but dry finish.

3.2
King_Alex_II (1227) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 7, 2015
Golden color with a solid foam head. The smell is shy and light malty. A very solid carbonation and a little stronger body differentiates it from the Weihenstephaner Helles. The aftertaste is malty.
