COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional Oktoberfest beer is brewed to be enjoyed throughout the fall. Big malt character is balanced by noble hops and a dry finish. Prost!

Draft - Bready malts with a bit of caramel. Light clear amber with a thin white head. Caramel, spice and a bit of bread. Spice is nice and the bread is in check.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at Bear Republic, pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavour are pretty restrained, with toasted malt, caramel, and German yeast. Pretty basic lager, but brewed well. Boring, but decent.

2012-12-08. Crisp dark yellow body with a small white head and lace. 3+ Interesting hoppy flavour, lemon, light not quite fruity yeasty quality, modest bitterness throughout, mild grassy hops, lemon lingers. Modest hoppy aroma, lemon grows and lightly funky yeast. 7+ Average palate is pleasantly carbonated. 3+ Enjoyable. (Edit: This was an Oktoberfest? Really? Okay.) On tap at Coles, Buffalo

solidfunk (3583) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Smells malty and pours with good head and lacing. Cloudy orange colour. Taste has lots of malt and that sneaky noble hops aroma that gets in there. A little caramelized malt in taste. On tap at coles.
