Yes.  It's essentially just another name for Oktoberfest.  It's a malty but not sweet amber lager of about 5-5.5% alcohol, no hops aroma, little or no hop flavor, and just enough bitterness to support the malt.  Most especially, it should be elegant and easy to drink.

thanks guys appreciate it

redbeerman:
Drink a Spaten or Hacker-Pschorr O-fest and you'll get the flavor profile.  The BJCP description is a little misleading as far as hop flavor is concerned.  The imported versions of these two beers and to a lesser extent, Pualaner, have a hop spiciness (Hallertauer or Tettnager) that the American versions are missing.
