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.

Very nice octoberfest. Exceptional balance and a very nice malty sweet finish. Light brown and orange appearance with decent head and a medium body.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor are full of rich but not heavy malt, caramel, a touch of smoke and fruit. Very clean, clear malt flavor. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve ever had. Wish it was available where I live -- would be drinking a lot of this.

OzarkElmo (295) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - NOV 9, 2011
From bottle on Oct 15th (Thanks Ronnie!). Pours a deep amber with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Good lacing lingering throughout. Caramel and a bit of smoke on the nose. Very good going down - well balanced and finishes just right. Not too sweet as some O’fests tend to be. Excellent!

unclemike (2269) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Pours golden with a thicky foamy tan head. Notes of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, and munich malt. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. One of the better oktoberfest beers

gururyan (615) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Pretty good, not as good as the hype, but pretty good. As far as the 7 Oktobers I have had this season, this one sits in the middle.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - AUG 15, 2011
Can’t get excited about it. Its a nice beer but not at all complex or memorable. Big seller though so someone one must really like it.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle pours coppery with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, toasty malts, wet grain and nuts. Flavor is sweet malt, cereal and grainy notes, bready, and lightly bitter.

Jimsnaks (2) - Topeka, Kansas, USA - AUG 7, 2011 does not count
Got to be one of the best Octoberfest’s I have ever had. Nice malty aroma carmel and a hint of spice. Nice dark golden color. Nice medium bodied brew.

Tasted on tap at the Flying Saucer in Kansas City, Missouri. Red-orange appearance with light head. Toasted malty aroma. Malty, sweet flavor with a nice ZING.
