DATE TASTED: September 13, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker... OCCASION: first full week of school is done--and the power’s back in our house...APPEARANCE: upward cascading bubbles uphold a thick, foam-laden off-white head; orange amber body conveys an Oktoberfest with nice tracings... AROMA: beautiful caramel malts; some flowery hops add balance; grassy undertones add to its earthy aroma...PALATE: mellow, medium-bodied and pleasantly drinkable; balanced between tongue and tooth...TASTE: sweet, buttery caramel and sugary/salty enough to force of a lick of the lips; a winning sweetness that makes this style rewarding... OVERALL: clean, crisp and fulfilling--an Oktoberfest can do little more to impress; outstanding may be a stretch, but the sum of its parts suggests this appellation...

Near perfect assimilation of the German festbier. Nice malt profile, with a crisp hop back end. Malts are smooth and flavorful, malt finish, malt lingers. Now I miss Being in Germany in September....

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. I’ve been a big fan of Great Lakes Brewing, but was disappointed by this beer. Sweet aromas, decent amber taste upon the initial taste after that a foul aftertaste.

One of my favorite beers. Good classic oktoberfest lager. Sort of reminds me of conway’s Irish ale but not as sweet

Tasted from bottle. Pours a orange color with white head. Aroma is mostly malt. Grains and some caramel. Taste is smooth, drinkable and sessionable. Normally I'm not a huge Oktoberfest style fan but this is good. Sweet tasting with almost no detectable bitterness. Flavors of caramel and spices. Excellent for style.

Drinkable and sessionable, and that’s all that matters really for this style. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Lightly caramelized malt. Finishes a touch sour, with some booze taste. Tap at Smoke and Barrel.
