Pours a very clear golden straw color. A fingernail length head. Aroma is malty sweet. Taste of light malt and light hops. The feel is perhaps my favorite aspect of this beer. It has a lively carbonation. It is crisp and refreshing and light bodied. Not very complex, yet overall, a decent beer.

What sobuf posted is nearly 100% accurate. My only correction is that Warsteiner should not be on the list of Bavarian beers. It's from the North, not Munich. Otherwise, the comments are spot on. Criticizing any of the Munich Märzen beers as "not representative of the style" is laugh out loud absurd. An apt comparison would be claiming that Maker's Mark or Woodcord Reserve don't represent Kentucky bourbon - they ARE Kentucky bourbon, for crying out loud. Same for Chimay and Belgian Trappist Ale, Bavarian breweries and Hefeweizens, etc.

This is an excellent example of an Oktoberfest beer. I'm having one at this very moment, and it's delicious.

Poured perfectly clear and golden. Aroma was malty and earthy. The body was a bit lighter than the typical American renditions but the beer was perfectly balanced and the familiar with the malty sweetness and noble hops coming through nicely.
