I picked up an Oktoberfest special from the Cellars in Woodbury, MN. It included a one liter Paulaner mug made by rastal, as well as a one liter can of Oktoberfest Weisn.
Appearance --- honey colored (like a golden yellowish-orange) with a nice two finger white head
Smell --- a bit like bread/grains, and a decent amount of malt
Taste --- can taste some bread and maybe even slight hints of banana, with a grassy finish
Mouth feel --- minimal carbonation, pretty smooth, light to medium bodied, slightly hoppy start to a subtle sweet finish
Overall --- This was the first time I have tried Paulaner’s Oktoberfest Weisn. I enjoyed it quite a bit and would love to see them offer it every September/October as an alternative to their Oktoberfest Marzen. This was a nice, enjoyable beer that is perfect for the fall. I will stock up on this while I can and will have something to look forward to during the cooler fall months. It is definitely worth a try, it is not a very complex beer… but it is the most similar to beers sold at Oktoberfest in Munich and about as close as you can get to being at Oktoberfest in Munich without having to buy a plane ticket :) Prost

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.
