Bavarian barley slow roasted, caramelized to a rich, red amber color combined with the purest spring waters from the Alps, exclusive yeast and the finest Hallertau hops.

Dark copper with virtually no head. Aroma was dominated by roasted caramel malts typical for this style, but there was also some fruitiness to add some diversity. Smooth palate with modest carbonation and a toasty, slighly sweet, taste. Just enough hops to notice that they are there.

Bottled. Good dark color for a modern German Okto. A little bit lighter in malt character, but it more than makes up for it in a nice hoppy nose. There are some melanoidins in the bigger malt bill, and a little sourness. Also note a bit of hard water which helps bring out the hops.

This brew has a great palate - creamy smooth, small bubbles of carbonation make it seem thicker than it actually is. Taste is caramel sweet - but not overly so, an obvious hop balance helping out here.

On tap. Amber/orangy color with good sized white head. Aroma is sweet malt with molasses and caramel. Taste is toasted malt and a bit sweet. Finish is hoppy enough to balance the sweet malt. This is the best october I’ve had this season.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 (tap) this was some good stuff, among my favorite oktoberfest beers i’ve tasted. dry and crisp, drinkable and unique, everything i love about fall but not overly spicey... i will be ordering this again and again this season.

Poured oragne/amber, like leaves of fall. Light head. Pleasant dry flavor. Good hop finish. I loved this beer.

Light copper in color, with moderate white head that disappears quickly. Malty sweet aroma. Medium bodied, with good malt background and a decent hop bitterness that keeps it from being cloying.

A benchmark for Oktoberfest beers. Sweet malty aroma and taste that is the trademark of Oktoberfest beers. Goes down smooth. Easy to drink in responsible celebratory quantities.

Smooth medium body lager. Great fall marzen for watching football! One of your better Hacker brews.

egajdzis (5695) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Poured a copper color with a small off white head and light lacing on the glass. Toasted dough, dry grains, and very light sweet caramel malts in the aroma. I would have liked the aroma a little sweeter. Flavor was also dry and lightly smokey, but the caramel and honey stood stronger here than in the aroma. A light hoppiness comes through at the end, with medium carbonation.
