COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For thousands of years, fall has been a time of plenty ~ plenty of food and plenty of good brew, carefully crafted in anticipation of one heck of a party. If summer is exercise, bikini diets, and baking in the sun; fall is recliner Sundays, cheese in a can, and basking in the glow of a robust, flavorful brew like Dundee Oktoberfest. So in the fall, be full-bodied. After all, as much as we love bikinis, there is a lot to be said for cheerleader sweaters. 15°

bhensonb (11090) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is slightly spicey/hoppy. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor starts with sweet caramel. There is some spice and/or hop, and it does tend to wash out the sugar. I’d drink it over most any macro product.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Bottle… Clear, dark amber lager with a small, quickly dissipating, off-white head. Decent retention. Nutty, toasty aroma with caramel coming to the forefront. Medium-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. Malty, caramely flavor with mineral bitterness providing decent balance. Subtle, bittersweet finish.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2009
From the Bottle at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 25/09/2009 Floral aroma. Bronze coloured and a little rich on the palate with a little dryness in a crisp full malt finish.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Sample at 69 Taps in Akron. The beer is a mostly clear copper color with a thin off-white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing. Light earthy malt and caramel aroma. Thin body with a weak caramel malt flavor along with notes of toasted grain. Metallic touches as well. The finish is short and malty. Overall this Oktoberfest is more or less a joke compared to what else is out there.

shrubber85 (7609) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle. Syrupy barley malt aroma. Amber color with large head. Sweet corn syrup barley malt flavor. Not horrible but not great.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz brown bottle. It pours a deep reddish/orange amber. The head is fluffy and white. The smell is sweet, with some caramel, there is also some mineral water. This beer is sweet, but bitter, not bitter in a good way. Very basic. Not very good. The mouthfeel is exceptionally watery for the style. A crappy O-fest.

Ughsmash (7137) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear light-medium amber with a short-lived, but dense whitish head. The aroma picked up toasted pale and caramel malts with light detergenty accents.. not a lotta good going on. The flavor found similar stuff.. pale, caramel, and a touch of fruity malts on the toasted middle, with lightly bitter dryness around.. finished sweet and grainy. Lighter-bodied and a bit sharp on the palate.. moderate carbonation.. just not that good.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2009
On tap for growler fills at Half-Time. Pours a clear orange with a medium white head. Smells very sweet, with some faint honey and pear notes. Medium bodied, grainy and cloying. Finishes up with some more grain and a bit of acrid bitterness. Tough to drink, unpleasant.
