COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cleveland’s celebration of Oktoberfest dates to the mid 1800’s when German immigrants gathered at outdoor beer gardens like Haltnorth’s and Kindvater’s St. Clair Gardens. Our amber lager with rich malt flavor and noble hops honors Cleveland’s diverse cultural heritage.

Pours an excellent deep amber, the kind you’d take home to mom. Smells great too, roasted malts and their autumnal sweetness, along with the classic beery whatever that smell is that I assume is caused by fermentation. Flavor is much like the aroma, but with a little more sweetness at the beginning, and a little more roastiness at the end. It’s great.

12oz bottle (Belmont Party Supply-Dayton, OH)-Pours a very light amber with a light white head. Slight sweet aroma and hints of caramel. Very light bodied taste with only slight bitterness. Not a bad Marzen. Refreshing.

Headbanger (3851) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
12oz bottle 10/2/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a clear light amber with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a bit of hops and citrus along with some more sweetness. This medium bodied brew is very well balanced and quite smooth. Nice job.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange color with a fizzy white head. Some smooth malts with a mild caramel flavor in the nose. Sweet and malty flavor at the beginning with a dry and lightly bitter middle. Finishes dry and crisp with some bitterness that lingers.

Orange hue. Light malty body. Some sweetness. Decent. Not impressive though.

12oz Bottle. Nice deep munich malt aroma. Deep, bread-like and satisfying. This is the real glowing Oktoberfest aroma that I expect and crave. Pours a brilliant shiny clear orange-amber, with bronzed gold fringes and soft white head, settled in above. Oooh. The flavor is so satisfying and crisp. Rich, faintly port-like malty raisin character from the Munich just bleeds through the beer, infusing it with an intoxicating chewiness. The cool, snappy lager quality plays of the maltiness, giving it a rich balance. Mmmm. This is good. It’s not a 5.0, but for an Oktoberfest, it’s pretty freakin’ incredible. Stellar brewing!

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle sample. Clear amber pour with a big tan head. Grainy malt and caramel nose with some light hops. Caramel malt flavor with a bittersweet caramel and hop finish. Not sweet through and through like a lot of o-fests and that’s a good thing.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2009
On tap at Dusty’s Tap Room, Okemos. Clear straw/orange body, thick, puffy buff head. Earthy nose with toast and sugars. Malty body with sweet residual sugars and hints of alcohol, finishing with bitter, earthy hops. Too sweet.

Slightly dark oktoberfest with weedy hop aromas. Somewhat dry, slightly bitter, slightly sweet - this has no outstanding strengths. Mediocre.
