look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly malty, grainy with a hint of honey and leafy hops. Taste is sweetish at first, a bit astringent, balanced throughout and a bit more hoppy and bitter on the finish. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Well made, quite clean, typical taste for the style.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bright yellow golden color with a thin fluffy head with short retention, but leaving traces.
Aroma with notes of grainy malt, dough and grassy hops.
Flavor with notes of grassy hops, bread, mild honey, distant toastedness and a bit of veggies. Lightly dry aftertaste with a low to medium bitterness.
Light body with mild carbonation. It feels soft.
Refreshing Festbier (which is a somewhat milder version of a Marzen, but I understand this is the predominant style now in Oktoberfest), faithful to style which yield higher drinkability. Malt predominates but still does not feels heavy.
