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.

Clear copper pour with an offwhite head. Full malty aroma - caramel and bread. Flavor is primarily malty - sweet, spicy; also slightly biscuity and faintly metallic. The aftertaste follows the same flavors. Smooth medium bodied palate. Nice well balanced beer.

I poured it from the bottle into a mug. It pours a light amber color with a fluffy white head and lacing. The aroma is barnyard, funk, hay, and grass. The taste is grass, hay, earth, vegetable, and some sweet corn. The palate is light on carbonation. It’s a pretty good interpretation of the style.

Bottle. Copper with 1 finger white head. Dark fruit, nuts, malt, and an unfortunate creamed corn taste. I’m guessing DMS infection? Too bad, would be pretty good otherwise. Will have to try this one again.

Patrickctenchi (5204) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle: Almost clear amber with a short, off-white head. Orange, leafy aroma. Taste is sweet orange/toffee malts.... Vanilla, sweet grain malt. Almost candied.... Very malty, but a bit too sweet, however.

callmemickey (3891) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Clear copper-amber body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Bready grains, some toffee, some florals, and the slightest bit of citric hops. Medium bodied, softer carbonation, moderate sweetness, a bit sluggish in the finish.

hman43 (736) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2015
It pours a light amber with tinges of orange that is fairly clear. There is some lacing, but not much. It has aromas of hay and cereal with herbs and hints of dark fruits. It has flavors of hay and bread with a few spices and hints of basement flavors.

JDBaker11058 (1647) - Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2015
appearance: clear coppery amber, with a finger of creamy beige head and average lacing. aroma: caramel, light toffee, some nuts and light grass. taste: caramel, toast, light brown sugar, general slightly roasty grain and then a touch of grassy and lightly floral hops. finish: clean and crisp, slightly toasty, just a bit of grassy minerality. notes: Great example of the style. Exactly on point.

Clear amber, small lacing foam ring remaining. Kind of smokey aroma and nice small bitter taste, some floral tones. Nice beer. (Cleveland 201510)
