Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Clear amber body, medium clumping off-white head. Spicy hops aroma with faint metallic notes. Malty, toasty body with caramel and earthy hops; metallic and biscuity finish. Clean mouthfeel. One of the better Oktoberfests I’ve sampled of late.

JonMoore (2060) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Light amber coloured with a moderate sized off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel and perhaps a bit of fruit. Nice taste; sweet, malty and a bitter hop finish. Smooth, medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Good beer.

mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2004
Pretty good and not quite as malty as some of the other Oktoberfest brews that I have tried. Drinkable and decent, but not a favorite of mine. Go for the wheat beer.

I want to give it a great rating... But the hefe weiss is SO much better. I got a lot of this for a good price to boot during Oktoberfest, but it’s really just a golden, foamy pedestrian beer. A real shame!

guzzler67 (1644) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2004
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.

DrnkMcDermott (2977) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2004
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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2004
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.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 27, 2004
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.

GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2004
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.
