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.

APPEARANCE- beautiful caramel color, perfectly white head with great lacing. FLAVOR- The most striking part of this good beer is the great balance of malty sweetness that is forward in the sip and slightest bitterness at the end. Finishes smooth with the slightest bitterness lingering plesently. NOTES- extremely well done. My favorite of the domestic craft oktoberfest beers.

This years glbc o-fest is overatteuated-thin, boozy, no head retention. bitterness is ok, but hop aromatics are missing. Bought a 12-pack based on past experience. Big mistake.

Seriously Great Lakes, you should be ashamed to put your name on this beer. Tastes like flat Mad Dog but worse.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Poured to an event shaker at the WCD Trade Expo 2015 in Chicago, showing a clear, amber color, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam that gradually diminished to a ring & film, with some spots of lacing on the glass. The nose was light caramel & toast, with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma’s, adding a bit of crackery grain, and moderate hop bitterness. A decent fall fest offering.

Iphonephan (6199) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of caramel and peach. Bit of hop zing in the finish.

tia (1737) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Tap from source. orangey golden with moderate oatmeal head and light lacing. Honey and light wheat with a lig ht citricness. Too wheat and grainy for my tastes. Very little hop character to balance. A little something oddly sweet.
