Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange-red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruit - especially peaches, as well as notes of malt and berries. the flavor is sweet with notes of dusty German hops combined with light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry and slightly bitter finish. OK, but nothing special.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, malty nose. Medium body with lightly sweet malts and a somewhat biscuity touch. The finish is dry. Somewhat close to a Heller Bock. 171107

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 11, 2005
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, evokes hefeweizen -- banana and wheat, with light spice, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, banana, some caramel, light spice, earthy. Light-medium body. Not bad, but not what I would call a traditional oktoberfest beer.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Steves Mineral Point in Madison. Pours a clear amber with a med white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts and a bit of a buttery note. The taste is toasted malts, berries and caramel. Faint hops. Medium bodied.

Dogbrick (7998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear bright orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and slight hops. Light-bodied with a strong malty character and notes of hops and fruit in the background. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

JorisPPattyn (7887) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Small yellowish head over clear pale-amber beer. Extremely fruity nose, rosehipsjam, caramelmalts in force. Bready, but with a leafy, near-bitterish tang, that is very welcome, relieving the more classical sweet, malty, caramel-fruity notes. Retronasal again rosehipsjam. Bit spritzy MF, slick, but not much body. Not bad, even when, considering this an Oktoberfestbeer, I’d hate to have to drink liters of this. Thanks, DA!

crossovert (7309) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
The final Oktoberfest I will down this season. Pours the classic amber color. Smell is a bit sweeter than most but hops are also present. Taste has a nice hoppiness to it, along with nutty, sweet malts. Overall it is another solid Oktoberfest Beer, somewhere in the middle of the pack.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Pours a clear deep copper with a thin, fizzy white head. Aroma boasts lots of thick sweet caramel malt and a touch of noble hops and German lager yeastiness. Body starts very malty, sweet, and full with a good bittering hop balance toward a crisp, yet creamy, malty finish. A very enjoyable Oktoberfest.
