Very pale and translucent yellow. White head. Pretty standard but the foam sticks around a while.
Ahhhh, now this is an oktoberfestbier. Full malt aroma with hints of noble hops. The alcohol just barely makes it through, but isn't strong enough to detract from my enjoyment and is certainly concealed better than most others of the style. Perhaps a touch of sulfur that gets in the way.
Straightforward pils malt flavor with some bitter chestnut honey following. Very smooth, no harshness, no astringency, really good.
Smooth straightforward and not overcarbonated. Perfect to drink by the liter(as the beer gods intended.)
As a couple others have mentioned in their reviews, this beer is reminiscent of their lagerbier hell. This version is of course dialed up a notch at 6% abv but unlike lesser oktoberfests this one has the body dialed up a bit as well to compensate for the increased alcohol content. Like most of Augustiner beers, well done.

Very light golden looking and clear with a pinky sized, foamy white head and plenty of bubles rising to the surface. The head stays okay, with only a slight initial reduction in size but the beer just looks too light to me.
Mainly a malty lager aroma to begin with some sweet malts piled on top and a little bit of biscuit and grassy hops. There is some citrus notes in there too but not a lot and has a clean finish.
Almost skunky to begin with a lot of sweet but not overly strong malts, there is some ctirus and grassy hops to but again both are light. I got some biscuit and lemon but not much eles really. It was an okay tasting beer but pretty basic in my opinion.
Light medium with lively carbonation and a smooth, wet mouthfeel. There is almost no bitterness in the end as well.
This is another beer that started to grow on me as I got further down the glass. There was quite a good malty base to this one with a some nice light hops and a biscuit like taste on top. It went down very well and would make a great session beer.

Enjoyed this beer on my first trip to the Augustiner Braustubl in Salzburg December of 2010. As a caveat, I will say that any beer you have at this establishment is already going to be better than your average brew due to location, and the fact that they serve it in ceramic krugs and locals insist the krugs be warmed in this giant fountain prior to having a beer pulled. You then buy a beer ticket and wait in line to have your beer poured from a giant wooden keg. Truly an amazing experience and highly recommended. I digress..
Appearance: Light orange, not as dark as many marzen biers but darker than hofbrau and lowenbraus oktoberfest offerings. Nice two finger head that doesn't dissipate for quite some time.
Smell: Super malty, very little hop
Taste: Tastes like smells, lightly toasted malt characteristic which is terrifically balanced with mild bittering hops, leads to that, "I just had a sip but I want another one now" pilz'y dryness to the back of your throat.
Mouthfeel: Kind of blew my load on this above, 'nuff said.
Overall: Fantastic beer, my favorite of this style. Shame I've only had it a couple of times and was fortunate enough to get it in December. Recommended highly if you can get your hands on it, or anything by Augustiner for that matter.
