JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Brilliant copper color with a moderate cream colored head. Crisp toasted malt aroma. Rich malt and hints of peach in the flavor. Clean and flavorful. Light hops near the finish help the sweet malt dissipate. Full finish with a munich malt linger.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Translucent and amber brass in color with a sudsy off-white wrung and a ice sheaf cap shaped in the form of male genitalia. Caramel and brown bread star in the subtle aromatic showcase along with clean, buffed pecans and a hint of light mocha cocoa powder. This aromatic anthem of toffee brittle can hang with the best of ‘em. Full bodied testament hits chocolate dust scattered amidst the pecans and hazelnuts. Creaminess takes us to dynamic toffee bark levels with chocolate enveloping slightly spicy pecans at its sides. Caramelized, light rye bread and a chewy autumn pie crust work well together, and the sogginess from their dressings is very palatable. Slowly roasted bran with drizzles from liquefied pralines make their flavorful presence known at the perfectly precise time. Brown sugared oats smooth it out in the end, giving a signature wholesomeness to this well crafted rendition.

My sis picked up a growler of this when up in Madison recently. Pours a great red-amber color, medium carbonation with a foamy off while/cream colored head. Aroma is very heavy of Munich malt, slight apple fruitiness and a real heavy nutty aroma. Flavor was very nutty up front then moves into a sweet caramel malt flavor and finishes with a solid alcohol presence. Overall a great example of an Oktoberfest lager.

A pretty good and caramel malted Oktoberfest bier. Lots of roastiness on the nose and palate. Pretty drinkable, and a good example of the style.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2005
Festival sampling. Clear brown body. Chocolate-sweet malt aroma with caramel syrup notes. Lesser malts in the flavor, tending more towards the core grain rather than the sweet wort. Dry smoked malt finish.

Ughsmash (7128) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap at Great Dane – Wausau. Poured clear copper with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up toasted nutty and caramel notes with fresh fruity and leafy accents.. crisp and well-presented. The flavor found nicely-toasted caramel and chewy bread at the core.. fruity hops and a touch of tartness around.. odd, slightly funky fruit on the finish. Light-medium bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow. This started out much better than it finished.

Light Brown Coloring. White Ring. Spices on the Nose.. Good Balance of Malt and Hops, Fruit/Spice...Dry Ending. Overall Not Bad.

Skyview (5181) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2009
An early release Octoberfest from Great Dane. On draught during Great Taste of Midwest 2009 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, a touch of caramel malt and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, smooth with more malty flavor than fruit character. Finish is semi-sweet, malty with a slight biscuit texture and aftertaste.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2009
On tap, Great Dane, downtown. Pours a clear orangish copper with a small off-white head. Clean munich malt nose with just a light hint of hoppiness. The flavor is pretty good, caramel and munich malt with a moderate bitterness on the finish that makes it pretty crisp. Medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Decent, but not a standout.

madvike (2712) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Tap @ Fitchburg Dane - Pours dark amber with very little head. Nose is sweet malt--it’s nice and rich with lots of slightly sour milk. Taste is big and malty, with a little sour lactose, caramel, and just a bit of whiskey. There’s the faintest hop finish. It’s bubbly and smooth, but just a bit too sweet.
