Pretty good Oktoberfest. Enought maltiness to give it a good body without being cloying. Nicely balanced.

This is a great Octoberfest. The best I’ve had yet. Very pleasant to drink. Spices and malt in the taste. Quite good.

gthank (73) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Decent aroma with all the typical Oktoberfest smells, though it the malt is more understated than many. It is a nice looking beer, with a true amber body and soft white head. The flavor is pretty much run-of-the-mill Oktoberfest, good but not great. It feels like pretty much all lagers in the mouth. Overall, it’s about on par with Sam Adam’s Oktoberfest.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 27, 2002
Decent amber look with impressive head which was somewhat soft. Flowery - fruity, malty, sweet as a dominant. Well crafted, bitter with dark rye bread, some alcohol elements were present.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Huge aroma of malt and yeast. Very smooth and sweet with a bit more EtOH presence than I would like for the relatively low ABV. Nicely spiced. Fits the catagory to a T.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 23, 2002
Deep gold color, large head, kind of creamy. Spicy malty aroma. A medium bodied marzen. Malty and slightly spicy. Touch of smoke/toast. Nice flavored marzen. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and a little dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2002
i won’t bother coming up with colour adjectives cause you can just look at the picture. rich, plummy, spicy and juicy, with a touch of chocolate malt or something a bit burnt. a good un, but they need to clear up their october/march confusion. or maybe i do.

Not much unique. About like some of the other oktoberfests I’ve had. I wouldn’t mind a little more hops flavor.
