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.

12oz bottle courtesy of fiver29. Pours a clear dark gold with a one finger cream head and moderate lacing. Nose is malt, some spice and light hops. Taste is malt, toasted nuts and mild spice with a light hoppy finish. Lighter mouth feel. Decent – thanks John!

taalhiker (190) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2008
From bottle. Part of September Dayton Beer Tasting event. Pours rich amber (with nice lacing) with heavy malt aroma. Flavors include sweet malt, grass and bread/biscuit. Good effort but GL’s hoppy beers are better.

Bottle in trade from alexsdad06. Thanks man!
Pours a nice crisp semi-clear amber with a beige short lived head. Smell is fruity, lightly yeasty, toasty and tangy malt. Taste is fruity caramel, toasty and tart malt with light lingering bitterness. Pretty easy to drink. Medium to light body and average carbonation. A touch on the thin side, but very good for the style, I thought.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2008
12 oz. bottle, courtesy of my parents. Amber pour with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, nuts, and some crisp hops. Flavor is a pleasant surprise. Sweet malts blend well with some earthy hops. Toasted bready finish.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2008
Objectively speaking: Tap @ MapRoom. A clean and satisfying lager that did not have the charm that other comparables from the same brewery display.
I like: Focused on toastiness, direct Vienna malt aroma: bready, approaching nutty and gently toasty, but it has a certain huskiness and does not feel fresh the same way than an Eliot Ness can.
I dislike: The small white head quickly departs from the clear light amber pour. A certain huskiness coats the palate. I quickly grew tired of my pint, which should not happen with a lager.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2008
I would have to say this is one of the nicer marzens i’ve had in a while. Pours a sort of hazey dark copper colour with a large off white head. Aroma is pleasent, with rich dark fruits, nuts and vanilla. Taste is rich as well, creamy, nutty- soft spice and toast.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Aroma: Rich malt aroma. Appearance: Clear amber-orange, two fingers of off-white head leave significant lacing. Flavor: First sip is deliciously malty, vanilla, wort, raisins. But my tongue quickly became attenuated to this, and most of the beer tasted of biscuit and hay. Palate: Somewhat soft on the carbonation; moments of caramelly thickness.
