    Wheat 60%
    Pils 30%
    Munich 5%

    That's weird, Oktoberfests aren't usually a wheat beer. Most of them these days are just stronger Munich Helles.

    It's a Weizen. Aldi often put out a mix of beers for Oktoberfest including Weizens, which generally I don't like so I always carefully check the bottles.
