This beer is really for those people who like malts, yeast and, just the enough hops. I like this beer, it’s not too intense but has plenty of flavor and, a little bitterness to boot.

Inviting bread-y aroma with well balanced malt taste. Very nice marzen offering. I don’t know if if I could drink seveal at once but this one goes down very smooth.

I would have to say this is the best Oktoberfest I have ever had. It is fantastic even out of a bottle. Is this Great Lakes first year with this product? I have not seen it before.

Pours dark orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, crackers, light toffee, and caramelized malt. Taste is bready, toasted malt, and doughy lager yeast. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly sticky with moderate carbonation. Quite nice.

Goodness, a fresh and delicious oktoberfest, with just the right hop presence in the nose to complement the perfect marriage of hay, caramel, sweet flavors. The tiniest amount of bitterness lingers, flowery-like. Too bad I just picked up the one single from Belmont Party Supply in Dayton.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour, nice white head. Sweet crystal malt aroma. Flavor is a blast of biscuit malt, I say it everytime but I love that malt. A sweet caramel taste rides along as well as some subtle vienna spiciness. Floral hops but more on bitterness than actual flavor. This may be the best Oktoberfest style beer I’ve had as far as drinkability, very smooth, good amount of flavor not too much or too little, and just an easy beer to drink that I ordered 2 glasses of and hardly ever do that.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from Oktoberfest Zinzinnati poured a large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that was and left behind a transparent softly carbonated copper colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was malty sweet and mild hop. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and Irish red malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

had this over the oktoberfest special weekend. 1 litre plus a big plate of saurbraten(sp?) and cabbage. what a match, rich, malty brew, dark brown. flavor of carmel and toasted bread. an excellent beer with a great mouthfeel and a mild lingering hop taste.
