COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malty-sweet German style lager. This beer is a lager brewed in the classic Marzen/Octoberfest style. Brewed with Munich malt and Saaz hops, this lager is aged cold for superior flavor and smoothness. A pleasant malty sweetness and a smooth finish make this beer very drinkable, a perfect companion for cool autumn evenings.!

Fatehunter (1340) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Opaque amber color with a thin head. Getting some wet hay and grapefruit smell. Moderately malty first, then some bitterness to round it out. Simple, but hits the notes for the style. Has an interesting bitter/pine aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation, though it has a fizziness to it like seltzer water. Fairly average beer.

This was a excellent seasonal. I really enjoyed the blend used in creating this. It was almost as if it had more of the fall, Christmas style aroma than a typical Oktoberfest beer.

Pour is a clear amber with a large white head. Aroma is caramel malts and rpsted nuts. flavor is a littel weaker. Some malts are there but this is pretty thin. Finish leaves some bready malt. Nothing bad to say about this as it was going in the right direction, it’s just a little thin all around.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 11/14/11

Aroma: The nose is rather malty, with nuts, bread, caramel, and a little bit of earthiness
Appearance: Pours a clear pale yellow-orange color with a huge white head and heavy lace
Flavor: It tastes rather malty, medium sweet, a little caramel, some roast, nuttiness, and later bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, though a touch watery, with a fairly smooth feel, and a decently dry finish
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a decent beer. There isn’t anything I can necessarily pinpoint as wrong with it, but there isn’t anything especially great about it either. It really is just an alright beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at GABF, new State! Pours a nice looking deep copper with a fluffy head that lasts. Nose is crisp and fresh, nice bready notes and some spicy noble hops. On taste, much hoppier than anticipated, really nice bitterness that verges toward a dark pilsner. Lots of bready melanoidins and spicy hop flavors. Very decent beer.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Gabf. Clear, golden orange appearance with a foamy, off white head. Pretty bland, sweet caramel malty nose. Nutty, light caramel flavor with a grassy hoppiness.

dwyerpg (4635) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Malty with a clean almost sterile aroma. Flavor is quite malty. A bit of sweet caramel character, but this is too grassy malty for me.

popery (1451) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 1, 2011
The beer pours a bright amber-brown with a rocky off-white head. The aroma is mostly caramel with an earthy yeast tone and an herbal hoppiness. The malt has a tasty German character. It’s a bit nutty. It’s mildly sweet with a drying finish and a gentle hop bite. There’s a lot of nice German flavor bouncing around. Easy to drink and fairly refreshing. Mouthfeel is pretty standard. Average carbonation. A bit slick. This is a surprisingly tasty beer, particularly for one that I was mostly looking forward for the state tick. It’s got some nice, authentic German flavor and a nicely balanced tone.

Not bad at all. Diamond Bear’s new rocktoberfest beer. Pours a nice medium yellow color with a small to large whitish head. taste is smooth, but thick.
