The best domestic and imported German malts are used to produce our delicate yet complex bottom fermented lager. Its sweet maltiness dominates the palate but leaves behind a subtle, clean hop finish. Each batch of our Oktoberfest is cold lagered ensuring optimal enjoyment in the finest old-world tradition.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 Wow! Fresh as can be; expires Feb. 23, 2003. This pours with an attractive white foam with moderate stickiness atop a doppelbock-like deep amber color. The nose is full of fig, plum, spicy hop, pumpkin pie, and freshly baked bread. Bottle conditioning provides an array of velvety bubbles that ride the palate beautifully. Flavors are of toasted bread and plum underneath a solid layer of malt and a dry, spicy hop characteristic to give it remarkable balance. Finishes clean, dry, perfectly hopped, and a touch of vanilla maple. If this doesn"t get you excited for Autumn and pumpkin pie, nothing will.

A good fall beer with a smooth taste that leaves a good taste in your mouth. This beer looks and smells great. A little light on the hos and flavor but it still works.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 rerate-pours deep amber with a white sudsy head. suprising hoppy for the style in the aroma with some nice toasted/earthy malt notes. the flaovrs are lightly hopped and mostly grainy/dry malt notes. this is how i remembered it, but not quite as good. this beer smells like fall after a rainstorm. nice toasted grains on the finish, but not husky

Ahktoberfest. As in, ahh, that hit the spot! I’m not usually a fan of sweetness in brew, unless there’s a fine complex accompaniment, and this one has it.

I’m not much into hops but the special spiciness of hops in here really accentuated the rich roll of malt. A really fine fest in my book.

Nice malty, fruity aroma. Light amber/copper color. Clear. Very nice carbonation, not much head, though. Has the same fruity, malty aroma in the taste profile, along with some nice hops towards the end. Better than most microbrewed Oktoberfests I’ve had. Malty flavors are quite tasty.

A great seasonal from this brewery. Wonderful bronze color. Tons of malt backbone, well balanced with the brewery’s characteristic floral hops. A ’find a comfortable chair and have a few’ beer.

Quite impressive. Liked this better than the authentic Deutsche Oktoberfestbier I’ve had so far. Has a nice, full malty body, enough flavors to keep you occupied for a while.
