First brewed for a wedding in Europe, this beer is served in the fall of the year. A medium bodied beer with a taste that is more refreshing with every swallow.

Not only do I get to try a pile of Calumets, I get to add one! Bob’s winter seasonal is a spicy, nutty medium-brown lager with a great caramel/cinnamon/clove aroma and some good pie/nut flavors; finish is long and complex and surprisingly bitter. One of Calumet’s best.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2003 Very similar in character to the Dark...loads of sweet malt, fruity and tangy, with intriguing spice and sourness. Mildly astringent with a solid hop presence. This is much different than a typical, German-style marzen, and I'd agree it's more of a Vienna lager. Still, a very well crafted and tasty beer.

Great Festbier. Sweet and malty with enough hops to fit the style. Nice medium brown color and off-white head. Good complexity and a smooth finish make this one of Calumet’s better beers.

A nice lighter fest beer. Munich malt dominates. More of a vienna style.

A good, but not superior Oktoberfest ale. I prefer the Lakefront Riverwest Stein to this, frankly.

Good stuff and well crafted with heavy, but not ominous malts and a fair balance. This is a good little brewery that more of you guys should try.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2001
Oktoberfest is Oktoberfest, but hot damn is this one 1/2 gallon jug to be savored and respected. A very well-rounded amber brew. The very slight hop prescence during the gulp gets amplified as the beer is swallowed, followed by a fruity, almost tangy aftertaste. The nut prescence is apparent throughout the gulp. Once again, Rowlands Calumet micro-brews stand up to most

The Friar99 (222) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2001
A very good beer. The brilliant amber color is very appealing, and it tastes excellent. Everyone from Chilton should try it. By the way, are you actually ever going to try it ’thealcoholic’ or did you just rate it to screw up the average.

A very good looking beer and pretty tasty.

Blatz King (150) - Whitewater, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2001
This beer makes me think of nuts. The kind you eat. It’s color is red to brown, it sort of tastes like hickory nuts, and the after taste is nuts and leaves you wanting more nuts. This is a good beer, but not as good as Calumet Dark. Love those 1/2 gallon jugs.
