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.

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.

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.

Gryffyn (21) - , New York, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Like the amber color, but too sweet and too long on the finish. Not an easy drinker.

undsioux7 (835) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours clear light amber with small head. bready malts and a bit of sweetness in the aroma. Taste is the same but more malt driven leaving the sweetness behind. Nice.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Poured from a 12-oz bottle, best by date of 10/12/08. Hand an orangish color with a small white head. Heavy malt smell with some roasted grains. Taste was of biscuity malts with a hint of caramel. Very drinkable.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - SEP 5, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Very little aroma, though what little there is sort of malty on the caramel side. Orange/amber in color. Very smooth, however it is a little heavy on the aftertaste. Not good for more than one per sitting.
