The Paulaner Oktoberfest-Bier  is festive, hearty and especially tasty and is brewed especially for the most famous public fair in the world. Each year over one million beer stein ("Maß") of it are served at the Oktoberfest. You can get that Octoberfest feeling directly at home with this yellowy-gold seasonal speciality with the light hops taste, however only between July and October.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Spaten Oktoberfest Stange glass. There is a "produced on" date of 09/09 and sampled on 10-19-09

    Appearance: The body has a deep coppery amber color with very good clarity. On top sits a tall light beige head. It is light, fluffy and fades out quickly leaving only a little spotty lacing at the top of the glass.

    Smell: Its aroma is full of sweet bready, toasted and roasted malts with a touch of nutty character, caramel candy and noble hops. There is also a very slight hint of mineral like or hard water like aroma.

    Taste/Palate: The flavor is much the same as the aroma. It has loads of sweet malty goodness with nice nutty and roasted character. Its sweetness fades towards the finish and leafy/mineral like hop favors come in and add a nice balance of flavor and bitterness. It finishes crisp and clean and has a nice solid medium body which is extremely drinkable. The carbonation is soft which make for a very smooth texture.

    Notes: This is a very tasty and extremely drinkable Oktoberfest. The only thing I could ask for would be a little more head retention. This is one of the better Oktoberfest beers that I have had. Very well done!!!
