COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Good flavor, but nothing special in general. Nice blend of roasted malt and caramel flavor, but hops are almost undetectable. It is better than Sam Adam’s version of Oktoberfest, but certainly not the best I have had.

Tasted on tap at the brewery during the tour. Very nice example of a maerzen/oktoberfest style. light amber appearance with a pure white head. Up front malty with a little pecan nuttiness that is nicely balance out with some noble hop bitterness. I enjoyed sufficiently enough to buy a case! Prosit!

Exceptional on draught, very smooth and sweet initially with a comparable aftertaste to the Spaten oktoberfest

maxwelldeux (3496) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Draught. Poured a darker amber color with a slight head. Was one of the best Oktoberfests I’ve had - probably my favorite of the style. Nice and malty with a little bit of bitterness to it. Very biting feel to it which was really appealing.

Dark amber in color with a thin off white head. NIce aromas. Malty and caramel flavors, and a nice, slight tough of hops. Very Enjoyable.

An easy drinking oktoberfest that is packed with flavor regardlessly. CBC’s beers are usually on the dry side, and this is no exception.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 23, 2007
(12oz bottle, bottled 10/11/06, thanks wilkie) Small beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, peach, nutty, some toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, peach, light lager yeast, finishes with some earthiness and a hint of alcohol. Watery light-medium body, rather drinkable

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at Flying Saucer Raleigh. Pours a deep amber/copper wit white head. Nose is toast and biscuits, mild herbal noble hop aromas. On taste, more of the bready toast notes. Minimal hopping. Decent Oktoberfest.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2009
On tap at the brewery - pours an amber color with a frothy tan head. Aroma of malt, toffee, hops, and caramel. Solid balanced malty taste with toffee, caramel and a sweet finish. Nice Oktoberfest from a solid local brewer.

Amber in color with a nice caramel malt flavor. It has some small hop compliment but not to over do it. Very drinkable beer and a nice seasonal beer.
