A: A very clear golden yellow. The "yellowest" beer I have ever seen. Small, pure white head that soon fades to transparent sheet with blotches, islands or groupings of slightly thicker head. The above average lacing points to this beers heritage and is the first indication of a superior macro lager.
S: The noble hops dominate with malt, grass and the classic lager smell in the background.
T: A very mild cacophony of noble hops with malt and grass hinting in the background. It sets itself apart from other lagers (its technically malt liquor) with the hop domination but still retains its roots. Very clean, simple and in some respects sophisticated for its class.
M: A medium/light bodied beer with hints of heaviness that petition to enlighten the drinker of its "more than meets the eye" quality. CO2 is par.
D: An extremely drinkable beer for its slightly higher ABV.

11.2 oz brown bottle - coded 1243 that I think translates to bottled on June 11, 2013
Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier filled my pint glass with a very light cloudy golden hue, not your typical dark/copper color of the style. Atop was a white 1-finger head with good retention. The nose was clean, floral and grassy. The taste is a little bready with a light somewhat spicy hop bitterness. The finish is clean and refreshing making for good drinkability. Mouth feel is pleasant , clean and crisp with moderate carbonation.
Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier is a solid marzen, however to me it does not measure up to their Hefeweissbier or Korbinian.
