look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a perfect pint.

A- pours a clear shade of gold with a 2 finger white head. Well...it looks nice, but it doesn't look like any marzen I've seen. I'm really confused right off the bat. I'll give credit though: the lacing is amazing.

S- corn, and some grassy hops. The corn is almost overwhelming at this point. So in my mind, we're 2/2 in qualities of an adjunct, and this is...a top tier German brewery's fall seasonal. What the hell?

T- a little grassy, a little sweet, a tad bit bitter...overall, pretty mild and underwhelming.

M- thin. Not much body to speak of at all. It actually works though with the mild flavors

D- easy drinking. Pretty boring marzen though...so many better options

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.
