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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is transparent golden orange with a modest off-white head. Aroma is lots of Munich and caramel malts and German hops. Taste follows the nose, with a very smooth finish. Delicious. This is my favorite oktoberfest so far.

Very fine, slightly sweet, plenty malty oktoberfest. Lots of hops and a sessionable aspect.

This most excellent brew pours a fine amber with a solid white head and great lacing. Nose of toffee, caramel, and roasted goodness. Taste is up front caramel and toffee on the back with a light hop characteristic ever so subtle to keep it interesting. Aftertaste is almost bubblegum sweet with the malt profile and a great Oktoberfest session brew. Cheers.

Draft. Copper pour with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is caramel malt with hints of dark bread and flowers. Tastes sweet and fruity. Kinda watery. Don’t like the aftertaste. There are many better marzens out there.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 A fine Oktoberfest drew (close to being a marzen), that seems to shout "CLEVELAND" (the mistake by the lake) at me!

Transfer from BA review on 8-28-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a medium orange color with a one finger dense white head. The head had decent retention and faded to give way to a moderate amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma of a light roasted malt and some caramel. There is some toasted bread notes and a light spicy hop aroma that are mixed within. Taste – The taste begins of a caramel flavor and a great roasted malt and biscuit taste. As the taste advances some of the caramel fades as some light hop flavors of a more herbal note come to the tongue. These flavors crisp up the taste toward the end and leave a smooth, slightly roasted and lightly hopped malty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly higher then average side in terms of creaminess with the carbonation level being quite average. The body was fantastic for the roasted flavors of the brew while the carbonation level helped to give just the right amount of crispness to the brew as some of the sweeter flavors left the taste profile. Overall - Very easy drinking with some wonderful tastes as well as a nice smooth feel. Quite nice.
