Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. I’ve had this before, but never rated. A good example of the style, sweet but not overbearing, and balanced that some American oktoberfests tend to not have.

Medium amber/orange hazy pour. Head was thick and reminiscent of Guinness' and a quarter inch thick. Sour wheaty scent. Flavor is spicy but not too strong. Taste opens up to lactose, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and is a little sour. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate head. Light and slightly malty aroma. Not a lot of flavor, but it is a subtle oktoberfest, which I like.

Draft. Aroma is full with malt and grain. The taste is super smooth. A top notch octoberfest. Full over flavor and munich malt or sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at The Oak Cafe. Pours a golden light orange-yellow color with nice amount of head that lingers a bit. Aroma is faint and underwhelming. Smells like a pale lager, a bit of malt and noble hops. Taste is the same. Maybe just a slight caramel malt taste but its very faint. This beer doesn’t seem like an Octoberfest at all. I’m wondering if I got poured the wrong beer. Pretty bland, tastes pretty much like a bland pale lager.

fiercepanda (517) - Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2012
A clear dark amber beer with a small beige head. The aroma is hay, malt, caramel, and earthy. The flavor is nice nutty malt and caramel. I’m not big on Octoberfest beers, but this is a better one.

Originally reviewed: 9/16/09. 12 oz. bottle poured into my pint glass. Pours a dark orange with a big frothy off-white head on top. Great retention. Leaves some great sticky webs on the glass. Smells like bread, some sour grassy notes, and earth. The mouth is a little thinner than I’d like, but there’s some touches of carbonation bite in and out. Flavors of fresh bread, grassy hops, and light spices make up this one. This is a pretty decent Festbier. I’d have it again.

Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and dried fruit. Malty caramel flavor with a hint of hops in the finish. Smooth and easy drinking but not remarkable.

Poured a nice amber color and tasted like a typical Oktoberfest beer. But it is down on my list when next year comes around.
