Poured into a glass from a can.
A - Pours a clear straw, with good carbonation, forming a thin white head. Light lace on the glass.
S - Slightly sweet, cereal, and a hint of fruit aroma from the hops.
T - Very light flavor. A bit grainy and biscuity from the malts. Very low hop presence, only the slightest hint of fruitiness in the finish.
M - Not medium bodied, but heavier than thin. Very smooth and clean.
O - Awesome German lager! If I had the opportunity, I would drink several glasses of this and love every second! Having said that, this does not resemble a Marzen/Oktoberfest as the style suggests, as the color is wrong and this beer does not highlight the strong malt body and flavor that Oktoberfest is known for. Much more like a strong Helles. Whatever it is, I love it, but around $6-7 a can, my consumption will be limited. My rating of this beer is based more as a Helles rather than an Oktoberfest. Although the style characteristics are off, this is still a fantastic beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Yellow, lots of carbonation bubbles, but only a mild head.
Smell: Bready, sweet.
Taste: Fruity right off the bat with apple/grape flavors. A little bit of grassy hop comes through. Light body, fizzy feel. Very sweet.
Overall: Beer #2 from the Paulaner mix pack was the Octoberfest Wiesn. Summit recently put out a Wiesn fest beer so I was interested to see how this compared. Unfortunately, I didn't particularly care for this beer. Too sweet, with raw grape/apple flavors usually found in cheapo malt liquors. Strange mouthfeel too.

Pours a clean, clear, golden color. There is a white frothy head, about two fingers of it, that soon settles to only a halo around the edge.
Not much to the nose, there are however some malts and grains to be picked up.
The beginning is neutral, slight sweetness, followed by a balanced body, some more bitterness perhaps, coming to a nicely bittery finish.
Nothing special, but still enjoyable.
