COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktoberfest is one of the most celebrated traditions in German culture. And though Kansas may be a long way from Munich, we share the sentiment. Our Octoberfest was only the second specialty beer we ever brewed, and the original batch was first tasted back in 1989. To this day, it continues to be one of our most popular brews, with folks seeking it out both at the brewpub and on the shelves of their local liquor stores.

Good fall beer, but not great. Flavor is nice (safe) and doesn’t overwhelm with seasonal spices. Aroma is good. Pallet is smooth and clean, not much of a mouthful. I’d drink it again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Good malty smell. Amber red translucent color with small tan head. Taste the malt and hops with some spiciness. Had lingering bitter floral taste. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1684) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on top of a copper body. Smell is wet grain and a little earthy. Taste has good malt sweetness, but not too much. Mild bitterness. Bready and malty overall. Crisp, but still smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. A good beer. If you find one, drink it.
