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.

Thanks Miketd. Nice easy drinking. Good light amber color. Good lacing. Taste is of cereal malt, slightly sweet with finishing hop bitterness.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2007
12 oz bottle 8/14/07: Medium amber w/ a thin, but lasting cream colored head. Deep toasted and bready malt aroma w/a slightly nutty grainyness & a touch of acetic sourness. Hints of alcohol in the nose and a medium floral hop. Well balanced flavor or deeply bready malt flavor w/a hint of tartness up front. The tartness goes away as it lingers on the tongue. Hints of grainy malt mid palate into the semi dry finish. Aftertaste is floral hops w/ just a hint of bitterness. Medium carbonation, lighter medium body, well hidden alcohol, and smooth body, but not creamy. Pretty decent beer as far as O’fests go. Go figure, goes well with kielbasi and sauerkraut as well as pork roast. The only turn off for me, and it is a very small one, is the grainy malt flavor that peeks in there.

Light copper out of the bottle with a small off-white head. Sweet grainy nose. Taste also has an astringent grainyness with caramel sweetness and some lemon citrus bitterness in the finish.

twindadplus2 (672) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a small but firm head. Aroma of nutty malts and light spice. Flavor of big roasted malt, dough and a bit of hops through to the finish. Hoppier than usual for the style but a decent Octoberfest.

Bottle at the Great Lakes Brew Fest. Pours an orange color with a soapy beige head. Aroma of stale malt and marzen. Stale malt flavors. This is really bad.

ElGaucho (2391) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle. Best before date: 12/10/07. Served potentially a touch too warm. German marzen aroma with very little hint of hops. Crystal clear amber with a very slightly off-white head. Stream of carbonation rising up from the middle of the glass. Malty and somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Higher alcohol profile than your average O’fest/Marzen. Fairly sweet. An excellent American rendition of a German style with a touch of extra hops.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Poured a nice copper with a similar colored head. Taste was grainy and somewhat ctirus. Finish was smooth, but kind of sour. Just very eh and subdued. I do not think I could drink much of this.
