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.

Reddish amber with a small white head. Grainy malt aroma. Flavor is sweet and tangy malt with a lightly bittersweet finish. Very smooth. A good session beer. Not bad at all.

donteatpoop (127) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2009
Poured a beautiful clear amber color with a fleeting finger of head. Smelled of floral hops and malts, not overly impressionable. Taste was fantastic, hints of malts and hops and little bits of heaven. The beer was crisp and refreshing, well carbonated, but perhaps a bit watery. It goes down like water; specifically water that tastes really really good and that I want to drink all the time.

Smooth and malty with some cinnamon and clove. Sweet taste balance by a light grassy hop taste.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2009
Amber with a thin quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma of caramel, toasted and Vienna malt. Taste of caramel, light alcohol, mild noble hops and Munich malts. A little heavy on the carb feel leading up to a peppy finish. Ok.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to 17thfloor. Hazy darker amber with medium to large white head. Distinct red fruit with citrus, yeast, rich caramel and a little green apple. Flavor is green apple, red fruit, a little cardboard, graininess, grass, chalk. Medium body with active carbonation. A little past its prime and GL is typically more solid than this.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber, small off-white head, no haze to the body. Rich with caramel and toasted malts, fruity, with some grassy hops. Some sweet caramel malts, a slight bitter finish. Crisp finish, well-balanced and refreshing.

Aight oktoberfest, nothing special, nothing stuck out, didnt have that german vibe to it but it had the american version of the german vibe goin on. most likely violated the purity law. Idk, aight, if im gettin great lakes im getting something else and if im getting oktoberfest im gettin something else.

JMerritt (1931) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Clear, light red-orange in color with a large, off-white head. Head retention is nice, lacing is thick. Lightly malty sweet caramel aroma, hints of grassy hops and a lightly spicy black pepper note. Flavor has a nice bitter pine tar quality, notes of tea rounded out with white cookie malts. Lively carbonation works well with this particular Oktoberfest.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle. Aroma has notes of iced tea, caramel, toffe. Medium hazy brown hue with a small foamy mostly disappearing head that left little lace. Flavor is sweet and herbal. Palate is light bodied and watery smooth. Frackin crap. Made for the mindless masses so that they have something to drink.
