DATE TASTED: September 20, 2014... GLASSWARE: Saranac willbecker...OCCASION: PSU/UMass--a Mass-acre to be?... APPEARANCE: hazy golden yellow body akin to a pilsener; steady upward bubbles; quite light for a fest; pale white head laces in tongues... AROMA: highly hopped in Saaz, apparently; besides the ping, some floral hops and grassy notes; not the fest expected... PALATE: active, vibrant and commanding--the aftertaste lingers with sweetness.....TASTE: sweet as a corn and biscuit combo can be; malty to the taste buds, but not as round as it is metallic to the nostrils; some wheat grass ...OVERALL: as Oktoberfests go, a surprise--much lighter and less malty than expected in its finish; perhaps drinking too many American fests has misled my expectations; still, balanced and worthwhile....

yep. these ARE the original brews we drank years ago while America was languishing in Zima and Bartles n Jaymes....... I have had poor opinion of these recently but they truly are the originals. I miss being able to guzzle a hugely tasteful, hearty brew like this. gulping this down, I had a flashback to my Spaten days at Old World in Huntington Beach. anyone remember Club-Weisse? this aint it, but dang it provided a great flashback! prosit!

Crisp and perfectly balanced, with plenty of honey and flower nectar notes. A little green and spicy on the finish - nice use of noble hops. Much more floral than you would expect an Octoberfest beer to be. This one is my favorite of the style, just a little above Weihenstephan's.
