A traditional marzen style beer with a gorgeous firey dark orange color. Oktoberfest emphasizes a rich malt character. A great way to fortify oneself as the nights start to get cooler. Available August through October

slight nuttiness on the nose,,,cant pick up much else. Amber pour witha white head that disappears almost immediately. Refreshing, notes of caramel and toasted nuts. smooth mouth feel. mediocre palate.

Tried this on tap. The aroma was caramel, bread, and a little roasty. The color was a fiery orange, clear and the head was a creamy white. The taste was a sweet medium with bitter at the end of the palette. A very drinkable beer. Palate had a medium body texture was sticky but clean during the beginning with a bitter finish.

Another fine example of the Marzen style Oktoberfest beers. Quite similar to Summit’s version. Has that wonderful sweet malt flavor that you just want to leave on your tongue. Solid all around--nothing offensive. Very pleased to have found this one by accident. Will look for it again next fall!

12 oz Bottle from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. Clear amber having small creamy white head with excellent lacing. Light sweet malty aroma with hint of spice, molasses, fruity esters and toffee. Soft carbonation. Medium-to-full bodied with starts with hint of sweet malt, middles on dry side, and finishes with dry bitterness. Some echoes of Capitol’s Autumnal Fest and Capitol’s Wisconsin Ale but milder, drier and more bitter. An excellent Oktoberfest beer.

Nice caramelly, malty aroma. Big carbonation, beer gushed a bit from the bottle. Nice deep amber color. Big, malty flavor. Some hop spicyness towards the end, but overall a big flavorful Octoberfest beer. A taste delight.

NIce roasted aroma. Nice med. bodied beer with almost a nutty malt flavor. This is not only my favorite fest but one of my best to drink.

Amber liquid with average sticky, frothy foam. Subtle notes of cinnamon, alcohol, toasted malt, and apple. Mild, yet very enticing. Soft mouthfeel with perfect level of carbonation. Flavors are of heavily toasted malt, pecan, and spicy hop finish. This remains classy and subtle, which is why I love Octoberfests so much; it is very difficult to make a subtle beer with refined flavor.

Maybe it’s just been awhile since I had a good one, but this fest soars to the top of my list. I partook of the festive beer hall quaffing reccomended by our own krisbierjaeger and, thought he beerhall was my folks farmhouse kitchen, the liveliness of the party was well accented by the quality of this brew. A spiciness in here reminds me of good mulled cider and is nicely accompanied by the full, round, nut toned malt. Faint toasted flavors, too. Just grand stuff, really.

Nice copper-orange color, with little head. Slightly darker than the Fest. Big sweet malt and nice hop aroma. Really well crafted for massive consumption of excellent beer. Finish of toffee and caramel. Stronger than it seems.

Wow! really good this year, Yummo! This year so far one of the best. This has a bit of that dryness that I prefer in this style of beer which makes it so quaffable. Nice rich red with amber highlights. light lingerin head with distinct lace. A solid beer. Love to eat pizza with this. Hell, anything at all.
