UPDATED: SEP 18, 2009 Ah GLBC, what can I say about quality of the beer that the beer itself can’t describe. I really have an affection for the Cleveland brewery and this Oktoberfest is as good of version of the style that you will find. A good, malty golden brown body gives the beer a slight caramel and hops flavor that can be downed in massive quantities.

Pretty amber beer; malty with a nice balance of bittering hops. Very drinkable.

On tap at the Blue Tusk. Not too much aroma present but the complex taste more than makes up for this. Some malt, hops and a bit of deep earthy taste. Perfect fall beer!

Bottle into pint glass. Nice amber color with receding offwhite head. Not much lace. Nice color though. Bready, nutty, vanilla, earthy, and a bit hoppy on the nose and flavor. Very pleasant and such a perfect style (and example) for fall). Medium body with medium low carb. Overall: simple style, but very sessionable and pleasant.

Pours a very clear light orange color with a small tight head. The aroma has a nice hop zing with a light roasty nuttiness. The flavor has a nice malt sweetness and is particularly light but a mild hop zing and roastiness make this a tasty beer.

Bottle. Pours an amber brown, whitish-khaki head. Reddish when held to the light. Smells nice and sweet, like caramel. Little malty, nice but subtle smell. Simple, smooth mouthfeel, with a little creaminess to it, very nice. Taste is caramel, some dark fruits, even some honey. Some hops towards the beginning, but not really at the end. Pretty good overall.

I liked this a lot... Very smooth, thin to medium body... barely any aroma to speak of... but overall it’s a nice malty, smooth and easy drinking oktoberfest. This would easily be in my top 10 for fest beers

Binny’s in Plainfield Tasting. Amber pour with a light tan head. Malty aroma with some sweetness to go along with it. It was o.k.
