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.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2007
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.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 8, 2006
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.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2006
On tap in Kent at the Riverside. Nice deep amber color with a very thin off white head. The aroma is light, sweet and a bit citrusy. The flavor is smooth, and clean with a medium body. The Hops and malts are both present, but not over powering. Clean finish. Very good beer.

Draft at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. Ivory head, fast rising carbonation, transparent, and an orange hue. Sweet, malty, caramel, note of toffee, sweet, and spicy. Flavor was malty, caramel, spicy and toffee. Tingly palate. Medium body. Nicely done and worthy of a try.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2006
It is a fest beer you are either in the mood for one or you are not, hops or no hops, sweet malts or not. Most fest beers are well made and taste the same. This is no exception. Very well made, up their with Capital Oktoberfest in quality. Clear amber nice head. Sweet caramel malt aroma and taste. Smooth finish.
