If I was handed this blind, I would have thought it was a Euro Pils.
First thing I noticed was the musty, skunk nose (Green Bottle?). Flavor seems to be more of the same, but honey sweet. Reminds me of sweetened version of a Heineken.
Not what I hoped it to be, but ya never know unless you give it a shot.

Sampling right now on 9/25/14. Comes in a pretty 330ml (11.2 ounce) green bottle. Just bought a single one to try but comes in a 6-pack. From the Staattliches Hofbräuhaus in München (Munich) Germany. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a .3l glass 'boot'.

Pours a straw-yellow with a good 1/2+ finger foamy white head that settles down to about a 2mm head. Some spotty lacing was seen when sipped. Lots of streaming bubbles rising from the bottom and sides of the .3l (about 11.5 ounce) 'boot'. The aroma is of German grains with a slight floral hops. A bit more going on with the taste with some spicy hops in there as well. Very slightly dry but lightly sweet finish as well. Overall, not as good as some of the other Oktoberfest brews I have tried recently but was decent.

Bottle from a six pack from Market Basket. Green bottles, huge display in the store so I dug down to an unopened case and selected one form there.
Pale golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head that persists for a bit. aromas of spicy floral hops, rich bready crackery pilsner with just a hint of melanoid. The flavor is rich and malty with a hint of sweetness. Light spicy hop provides balance and a touch of pruney cooked sugars adds some complexity. Medium body and moderate carbonation. I'd drink these all day long given half the chance. Clean well made with some subtle flavors, I like.
