THIS IS NOT AN OKTOBERFEST/MARZEN. "Festbier" is not synonymous with Oktoberfest/Marzon. I would say this is a stronger version of their Helles (which is one of the best in the world). Really nice and I like that you know it’s fresh since it makes its way to the states only in the fall. Grzesiek79 (4381) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 22, 2012
chocolate, citrus, barnyard, clove, licorice, golden, cloudy, frothy, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, umami, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish, Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - SEP 16, 2015
This was poured into a mug (correct/traditional glassware, screw that proper glassware bs).
Anyways, the appearance was a clear yellow color with a big transparency about it allowing a light carbonation rising to fill a light one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely. Light rings of foaminess stick nicely.
The smell had a big "corn-like" sweetness rolling into sly grassiness. There’s a sweet corn-like aftertaste and a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a purely awesome sessionability about it. Smooth creamy bliss rolls over my tongue.
Overall, best Oktoberfest I’ve ever had. Smell and taste are right on spot. This is what every brewer hopes to brew for the style. Weihenstephaner does it again. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a crystal clear golden straw color with a large white head. The aroma is mostly malt with some floral hops. The taste matches the nose.

Very clear and crisp beer, light notes on yeast and hops. A very enjoyable floral aroma and after taste. This could easily be a summer and fall beer, excellent beer all around!!!

Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier has a very thick, slightly off-white, frothy head, heavy lacing, and a clear, highly-carbonated, golden straw appearance. The aroma is of sweet, pungent, full biscuit, and the taste is of rich, sweet, bready, barley malt, a pleasant and hearty hop bitterness, and sugar. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier finishes crisp, refreshing, easy going, and delicious. Overall, this is a most excellent beer.

! What the fuck is wrong with you twits?!?! You could be handed practically anything european (and exceptional) and be unimpressed? (UNLESS IT WAS FROM COLORADO, CALIFORNIA, OR maybe, just maybe belgium...) Fuck you all. This is an exemlplary brew from an exemplary brewery. AND NO!!!! It’s not supposed to be a maerzen!!!!!!
Pours a golden color. Dominant honey and caramel notes in the aroma. Honey and cereal on the palate - very sweet, almost tapioca notes. If you like sweet marzens this is the beer for you. Fletchwadd (49) - Riverview, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2013
drank out of glass had large white head. Has a hazy color of yellow or gold. Has almost a Earthy flavor to to go with the grassy wheat smell followed by a similar aftertaste.
