This is the best Oktoberfest I have had to date. It was very nice with the Turkey especially. It had a good rum raisin taste which I really dug. I had it on tap once and didn’t like it. However I was pleased with it today. Good beer.

SpringsLicker (3444) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Deep amber with a clear shiny body under a thick off white head. Nice aroma of malt set everything up for a good flavor that is just sweet enough and in balance with the hops. One of the better Oktoberfests. The U.S. label is different that the one pictured, it has a checkerboard border. Nice.

As my favorite style of beer i was pleased to try this beer recently. It exdceded my expectations for an oktoberfest beer and why not its truly German. I want to get a fresher taste sometime...which is my only withdrawl on a higher rating.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2004
A rich amber gold appearance with a moderate head that quickly disappears. Slightly sweet with a touch of bitterness at the end. Overall, a smooth and very drinkable choice.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Clear orange with a good thick head. Aroma is somewhat sweet (caramel, honey, malty), somewhat spicy and somewhat skunky. Spicy and malty. A little sweet (definately honey), and it’s got a bit of a bite to it. Definately hoppy, and a little bitter. Overall, it’s pretty good.

DYCSoccer17 (3621) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Almost a sweet honey brown sugary aroma on this one. Maybe a touch of roasted malts. Orangey-copper transparent color with an off-white head. Slightly sweet malty caramel notes with some toasty malts. This gets sweeter as it goes on. Not bad.

argo0 (13080) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Sparkling light amber body with big off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, molasses, caramel, some toasty. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, molasses, light earthy, faint herbal. Finish has very mild bitterness. Light-medium body with a hint of stickiness. Ok, but a bit too sweet to me.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Poured amber/orange with a medium white head. Spicy, malty aroma. Taste is maltier than other oktoberfests I have with pumpkin spice and a slight hint of hops. Very drinkable and smooth.
