Pours mostly clear amber iced tea with a yellow-white head that settles to a coating. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste is bread and slightly caramel sweet malt with some noble hop bitterness. A touch sweeter than the typical Oktoberfest, but has nice earthy hop balance. Very enjoyable for the style and I could down a few.

Amber pour with a small white head. Toffee/caramel aromas. Flavor has a nice malt presence but overall it seems a bit lighter in appearance and body than most oktoberfests I’ve had. Still, decent brew. Drinkable and refreshing.

On tap at some overpriced steak place in Mayfield. Caramel color with nice dense head and lace. Sweet caramel toffee lightly toasted bready body with earthy bitter lingering finish. Pretty good. Seemed to lack the minerally flavor and texture of some of the Bavarian ones, but I am not an expert in the style.

Poured into tulip, pours a red amber. Little head, little co2. Aroma is of cereal. Sweet malty cereal taste with a pleasant malt caramel finish. Not my favorite Great Lakes but the does not mean this is bad just not my favorite. Very good overall I would buy again.

Pours a clear orange with a beige head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is sweet, malty with caramel, grain, and straw leading to malty sweet finish. Solid for the style, which is not my favorite

Very sweet, malts, caramel.
Surprised by the taste, smoother than I thought it’d be. Sweet and malty, but not as much as the aroma. Earthy hops evens it out. light bitterness, but just the right amount. Very pleased.

Smells like my old fraternity basement. Stale hops and barley. Copper clear color, little head. Not much going on here. Slight sweetness, vegetable, grains.

Pretty good stuff, meng. Served too cold, with a smallish, cream-colored head and good lacing. Aroma was almost nonexistent probably due to my low ability to smell, so all I can do is give benefit of the doubt. Color is a clear copper amber. Flavor’s very nice and to me, so important for an Oktoberfest, not too sweet. It is malty, bread, cracker, some tang, hint of bitter, roast, and dry. Body/carbonation excellent esp. considering temperature. Finish is like flavor, average length, very easy drinking. Solid beer.
