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.

slightly hazy golden pour with white head. Sweet bread aroma. Taste is sweet and malty with a fleshy fruit in the background, maybe pear and plum. Maybe needs to tone down the sweetness, but nice overall.

Looks on-style, deep orange with a significant head up top. Lots of honey on the flavor and the aroma over a sweet malty base. Herbal continental hops give a good contrast. This is one of the better lagers out of Great Lakes.

The body has a deep orange amber color with very good clarity. Its head builds up thick and creamy. It’s just off white in color and slowly fades to a thinner covering. The aroma has nice spicy and earthy hops with a wonderful sweet malty character. Its flavor has a deep malty base with light toasty bready notes and nice caramel sweetness. Balance comes from spicy, herbal and earthy hops. The texture is smooth and easy drinking with modest carbonation and a good solid medium to full body.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Solid malt body with some caramel. Moderate hops. Very good flavor and balance. One of the better examples of the style I’ve ever had.

Bottle to dimpled mug - bright peachy orange in color with a medium head. malty with a taste of pumpkin and caramel. Somewhat spicy. Has a malty backbone and a medium mouthfeel.

12 ounce bottle. Sweet aroma with a hint of dried fruits. Appearance is a clear amber, little head. Sweet malty taste with dried fruit, a touch of spice similar to allspice. Clean rich palate. A little to sweet for me.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a mild hop palate and smooth malts. A brew that you can certainly enjoy on a crisp fall day.

Pours coppery orange with very little head. A little nutty, a little caramel, a little hoppy bitterness. Not a great beer, but decent.

Bonus from a recent trade. Probably a little past it’s prime but not totally gone yet. A little more on the grain and chewy malt side of the spectrum. Pours a pretty good looking dark orange color. No head. Toffee flavors and a smooth caramel finish. Little bit crisp.
