Popped a bottle. Delicious, refreshing, slightly spicy and peppery. A little on the lagery flavor side, but very nice.

Purchased this as a 6 pack of 11.2 oz bottles at Binny’s in Skokie, Illinois, USA. It was labeled "Oktoberfestbier." My understanding is that this is not one of the breweries whose product is served at the official Oktoberfest. However, it is from Bavaria and they do make quality beers, especially their Weiss Biers. This beer has a malty aroma with some fresh hay. It pours a golden light color with noticeable carbonation. This fest bier has more depth than most. Nice malty flavor without the sour aftertaste of most others. This is a drinker with character that its rivals lack.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, malt, light spice. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

more like a german 14-degree svetly - much better than the weihenst. pils or hell. great haystack and grass aroma, fine pencil shaving malt with just a bit of alcohol sauce, quite bitter, very dry and long fennel-seed and oregano finish - like my beloved weltenburger pils ramped up a bit. not at all like a maerzen as the BJCP defines it thank god - much drier - more like augustiner edelstoff.

Pours light golden with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of munich malt, biscuit. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. Very nice festbier.

Bottles at Brian’s place. How haven’t I had this? Anyway, pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A big fresh hoppy and sweet toasted malt nose. The flavor is wonderful: fresh spicy hops, toffee, sweet toasted malts, a bit of berries. Super flavorful and easy. Lovely.

Salmoniform (1272) - 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.

Noble hops, clear lager smell in the nose. Clear golden with thick frothy head. Great lager, very smooth and balanced. People who rate this beer low don’t know what they talking about or just centered on hoppy ipas.
