I love this beer. I bought a sixer earlier this week and followed up with a 12-pack shortly thereafter. Felt totally strange carrying the cardboard 12-pack around, but once the beer was busted out of it, all was right.

Pours clarified blonde with short, finely bubbled head. Nice looking lager. Biscuit and booze on the nose, with light spice and a hint of pineapple. Malty and sweet. Flavor is like liquid bread...with alcohol. Buttery apple and pear fruit and bread fades into only slightly astringent bitterness at the back of the tongue, really faint coconut aftertaste. Nice medium light mouthfeel. This beer executes on all levels.

I've had a lot of Paulaner, but this is surely one of their standouts.

Sulfury on the nose, just how I like my lagers. Still being a german pale lager it doesn't smell like much. Medium bodied. Noble hops are evident mainly at the end and add a lingering flavor.

A - Look is a clear amber brown body with a bouquet of a 1/2 inch of sticky lacy head.
S - Grains take a backseat in this sweet very caramel and toffee like body, fruity like yeast, and some meal like grains that remind me of Smacks.
T - Decent blend of the style you got your toasted grain of the Oktoberfest, sweet marzen like body, and the fruity Hefeweizen yeast in the finish that keeps it from being too dry.
M - Light to medium easy to drink even from the bottle.

Overall I would get this again a very smooth take and still very toasty and bready Oktoberfest.

As expected from Paulaner, this is flavorful, somewhat sweet and malty marzen/weisn hybrid that is very easy to drink.

Enjoyed on tap at Bier Stein.

Paulaner Oktoberfest Wiesn brewed by Paulaner Brauerei GmbH & Co.KG with an ABV of 6.0% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a smell white head. The smell is rich with grains and that is about it. The taste is mild with some fruit taste at the end. This brew goes down smooth for having a ABV of 6.0% There is nothing over powering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it. The mouth feel is nice and clean with no bad after taste. Paulaner Brauerei GmbH & Co. KG did a nice job with this one. I would have to say that this Oktoberfest is one of these. Over all I'm giving this brew a 4.5 out of 5.

Paulaner Oktoberfest Wiesn - Paulaner Brauerei GmbH & Co. KG. Poured from the bottle into my seidel, this brew's got a 2 finger thick, lumpy white head,somewhat retentive lacing, and a clear golden body.

Smells like a greatly mixed malt variety, and just a microsniff of bitterness

I taste complex malts. A spot of earthiness on the tongue. Its got a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is very clean and smooth. This certainly is a refreshing brew.

Overall a 4.25 for Paulaner Oktoberfest Wiesn - Paulaner Brauerei GmbH & Co. KG. This is an easy-drinking, clean brew. Nothing really lingers, so you'll always be back for another! If this brew wasn't limited I would purchase it again.
