The Kaiser once said, "Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world." If the Kaiser and his significant other had tipped this bottle, we’d all be "sprechenden Deutsch!" We took all that is good in a traditional Oktoberfest - gorgeous, deep copper sheen, massive malty backbone and spicy, floral, pungent noble hops - then intensified each into this, an Imperial Oktoberfest.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
22 fl oz bottle, thanks to BelJohansen. Pours hazy orange with a lacing white head. Light woody and spiced aroma. Mild thyme note. Woody and spiced flavour. Dry woody and more solid spiced flavour following. Hoppy flavour into the finish. Nice but yet another terrible US interpretation of a German style beer.

Ungstrup (29083) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2004
An orange-amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel as well as hints of hops. The flavor is dominated by alcohol, that runs over the tongue, but also has notes of hops and caramel.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Fat aroma of caramel malt and aroma hops. Very full-bodied - looks thick as oil when poured. Extremely solid and full malt base with almost sherry-like notes. The alcohol gets quite prominent in the finish. But lovely indeed. 221206

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2005
Bottled, thanks JCW! Pale nut brown. Orangey hop aroma. Sweet with fairly soft mouthfeel. Crystal malt flavours alongside tangerine and coffee, as well as strong notes of alcohol. Sweet and almost sticky. Pretty good beer, but about as far away from an oktoberfest as you can come when talking about lagers.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2009 2009-10-18, draught at Ginger Man, NYC, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Light amber color. Nice nutty and breadish malt aroma. Good body strength, malt flavor, a bit cloying. Correct bitterness. In the end, warming alcohol feeling. Average.

2007-04-21, bottle, 7-5-8-4-16=40
Hazy amber color; creamy head; beautiful perlage. Aroma of malt, sweet caramel, bread. Good body structure, well malty, with caramel flavor, sweet. Long and quite strong ending bitterness. German hops with some aromatic characterisitc. Excellent; very good evolution for Lagers and Oktoberfest.
