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!

Tap at Barcade. Amber-coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lovely. Lightly malty with a kiss of lightly spicy hops. Soft toasted caramel malt base and a clean, crisp hop profile. Soft dusty spiciness. Good balanced, soft noble hop character. Fresh and quite tasty.

GT2 (8176) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Tap at PPOT. Pours chill haze to clear red. Weak foam. Sweet cinnamon bread and spice nose. Taste is bitter, sharply nutty and papery, light spice. Drying. My rating: 3.1 Fiancé rating: 3.5 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap. Pours with a lightly hazed orange body with a lasting off-white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are grainy, lightly citrus (lemon), lightly herbal hops. No real melanoidin character. A bit hop driven, light bready notes from the malt. Flavors are malty, a bit of caramel and sticky malt notes. I wish it was a bit more vibrant, lively and crisp in character (water chemistry changes maybe?), Medium to lively bubbles, oddly heavy/fuller mouthfeel.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft at Craft. Pours turbid deep copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny hops. Tastes rich, caramel malty at the forefront, with hops, mild tannins and brown sugary notes, and more late caramel maltiness that makes this one come off like a vienna lager mixed with a marzen.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
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

bb (6734) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Draft. Copper beer with an off-white head. Earthy, malty aroma. Careml flavor with some earthiness. Body is a little thin and weak. Light caramel lingers and there’s a little sweetness to this.
