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.

Bottle, I think thanks to cpferris. Ruby amber pour with a little off-white head. Aroma is sweet grainy / bready malt with light toasting. Flavor is the same, sweet grainy malt, lightly fruity, and some bready malt in the finish. Pretty decent for the style.

kassner (1437) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2008
bottle from 3 Sons, deep amber, no head, some lacing but taste wise dissappointing, earthy, and maybe some strange hop effort but no clear Malts

Aurelius (4677) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Medium light clear copper. Strawberry and butter aroma - super fruity. Tangy, strawberry-apricot esters over a woody, malt-bisucity backbone. Starchy, crisp mouthfeel with a lingering toasty aftertaste. Faintly sweet sometimes, and aspirin bitter at others. Light caramel as it warms. This Oktoberfest won in a back-to-back with Flying Dog Dogtoberfest.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2008
12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with little head. Full malty aroma with a bit of fruitiness. But overall I’d like it to have more of a presence. I think this is one of the more unique octoberfests I’ve had. There is a light malty sweetness with some fruit mixed in (Like apple and orange), and a touch of earthy hops. I really like this. Very solid. Medium body with kind of a round mouth feel. A good choice for fall this year.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear amber with with a small whitish head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. Flavor was caramel and roasted malt. Dry finish. Medium body with good carbonation.

Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Nice color with little head. Caramel malt flavor that finishes dry and with a slight hoppy bitterness.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2008
12oz bottle: Light amber color, non-existant head after pour. Aroma of sweet fruit, caramel and malts. Lots of roasted malty taste with some caramel hints. Finishes dry. Medium in body but the heavy malt taste almost makes it too filling. A solid choice but I guess my expectations were higher.

nihar (68) - Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Faint aroma of hops with a hint of malts... pours amber colored with no head.... Tastes like a lager with some caramel... easy to drink....

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Clear amber, needs a hard pour to get any head. Very faint aroma. Decent lager beer, just not very interesting and kinda nondescript.
