Had from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Whoa buddy, way to sweet. I almost wonder if this didn’t fully atenuate or something... meh.

williamherbert (1272) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Pours red with an orange tinge. Very clear and glassy, like half of the pair of 3-D glasses. Nice bishop’s collar at the top of the glass. Earthy and gritty malt aroma, but with a very sweet candy-like aroma. Butterscotch. Nicely balanced with the shredded tobacco and dirt/soil. Really good. A mix of sweet butterscotch and sweet caramel. Some strong yeast. The sweetness dominates, but the earthy malt is a great, gritty balance. Does the job for sure. Smooth, buttery feel and oily too. A sweet (but not too sweet) Oktoberfest. Very drinkable and flavorful.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Deep copper body with a huge medium khaki head. The aroma was strong with some sweet potatoes and lemonade. There was also some light caramel. The taste was sweet potatoes and light caramel. There was also some old leather that was actually kind of pleasant. However, I also got a little bit of band aid in the finish. Better than I expected.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Light malt body with a nutty feel, hints of chestnuts, mild caramel body with some roasty malts. Grassy hop palate to finish.

Block (1333) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Red-brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and a lot of fruits. Flavor of caramel, roasted malts, and fruit. Light body.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle at Goodbar beer club. Rich copper, thin white head. Nose is very sweet honey, strawberry fields. Flavor is plastic, very sweet honey, a bit of acrid malt. Overly sweet (way past usual levels for a doppelbock) finish

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours clear amber with massive off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and a little nutty. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. Something if off as flavor is astringent and has some sour yeasty notes. Not a very good fest beer or just a regular lager for that matter.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Clear, dark amber with orange highlights, tan head with good retention and lace. Muted aroma, malt and grass. Initial impressions in the mouth are cidery, a little bit of grass. The malt backbone is drawn out, bitter, nutty, with a tea-like tannic astringency. Medium body and carbonation.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 2, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Bottle 355 ml, Appearance: Clear, dark brown brew with large, frothy, sea foam like head. Dark amber light see thru. Aroma: plain plumy sweetness with lighter hints, touch of brown sugar and fig. 6- Flavour/Palate: Medium bodied. Strange off - dried fruit bitterness with slight brown malts feel. Figs and bitter leaf on light base. Lacking life and harmony.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle. Clear copper supporting a quickly dissipating dirty white head. Aroma must have been down the block because I only picked up the faintest trace of toasted malt. As expected, malt-dominated flavor but not consistent enough to ward off some funky adjunct-like notes. Watery texture and not much of a finish. Oddly, it’s still a drinkable beer but not a good Fest by a long shot.
