Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a standard pint.
A: Golden hue. Plenty of rising effervescence. Pours a 1+ finger, foamy, white head. Settles slowly, leaving a fine blanket of foam on the surface. Slight beer ring.
S: Sourdough bread, banana peel, a little honey, some lemon zest, and a little diacetyl.
T: Lightly pungent, lightly sweet... great balance. A little citrus and honey balances out a yeasty body.
M: Light and crisp... with a little bit of a syrupy feel on the palate. Lightly bittersweet finish.
D: MMM.... sip and savor.
Atmosphere is excellent. Great head, a constant foam blanket, and a light yet persistent beer ring. Nose is bready with bitter and sweet fruit notes and some honey. Nicely balanced yeasty pungent and sweet characteristics, accentuated with some sweet and fruit. Overall, this is a great quaff.

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.
