UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Re-rate: Too sweet. Overrated. Nice, but not quite as deep as other Oktoberfests. Worth a try in the fall months.

Great tan head and a deep golden body. Wonderfully sweet and malty aroma. Good carbonation. Slightly grassy, sweet aftertaste. Overall a good example of style.

Creamy head. Malty, coffee/carmel aroma. Carmel/amber color. Sweet malt flavor. Somewhat metallic in the finish.

Fine, but I prefer the Oktoberfest I recently had at Titletown in Green Bay.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 16, 2002
Nice clear brown-copper color. Little or no head. Malty aroma and flavor with an average body that could be a little better. Okay for a fairly available beer, but I much prefer Paulaner’s Oktoberfest. I think the reviewers below who described it as metallic definitely got a bad bottles, and I would encourage them to try it again.

The aroma on the beer rocks, the head, not so much. Nice balance of flavor, very light finish.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2002
Heavy malt nowe and heavy, heavy caramel grain character. Nut overtones and very full bodied.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2002
I had tried a few other Bavarian Style Octoberfests this year (Wurzburger, Becks, Spaten, Paulaner) and expected this to be like those - yellow, crisp, with a bit more malt than the regular beers. This was, to me, a pleasant surprise. Deep amber color, caramel sweetness, and a full bodied. I liked this one.

thin bodied....everything about this beer was METALLIC. the color--copper. the aroma--tin. the taste--aluminum, albeit somewhat malted/smoked aluminum. i had such high hopes for this beer! alas, i would not buy this again.
