Another Oktoberfest from the North of Germany -- well, I'll try anything once.
Interesting that this beer isn't listed at either US or German Warsteiner web sites. I wonder when Warsteiner decided to brew an Oktoberfest -- and I wonder what the odds are that this is only exported to the U.S?
12 pack blurb reads, "...rich amber color...slightly malty and mild taste..." Hmm.
Good dating on the 11.2 ounce bottle, best by 04 June, 2013. $14 for the 12.
A -- More deep gold than real amber color, with a white head that holds up well.
S -- Mild bready malt with some light, spicy hops present.
T -- The label was right; mildly malty, but a pretty good breadiness from good malt. Lightly spicy hops in the finish. Aftertaste carries some of the spiciness over, but fades dryly.
M -- Mouthfeel is rather crisp for this style with a very dry finish. Body is light medium.
O -- Overall, this is a pretty lackluster Oktoberfest Märzen, though it's far from offensive in character. Maybe a first step into richer beers for a beginner, but not the best example of style.

I had this on tap at Bierstube in Anaheim. It is a good, very enjoyable oktoberfest.
It looksgood,a nice light brownish copper with a creamyoff-white head, some lace.
Aroma is a nice, simple but full-bodied oktoberfest with lightly caramelized barley and bread crust, light herb.
Taste is a very good,solid oktoberfest with the same basic elements as the aroma, nicely balanced, light sweetness, light zesty bitterness. It's great alone or with German food. Feel is nice, not watery, slightly lively. It's a great easy-drinking but tasty beer.
Serving type: on-tap
