Very well done. Malts and hops are in a very good balance. Nice body... not at all watery or metallic like Spaten.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Amber color, with a lacey, tannish head. Highly aromatic : spicy, cloves, cinnamon, herbal. Malty, but not overmuch. Some sweetness, but, again, just enough. Delicate hop, solid body, slight sharpness and a coppery edge in the mouthfeel. Very delicious.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Amber color with a long lasting medium white head. Clear. Lots of lacing. Malty aroma. Not too sweet. Some caramel flavor. Malty but again not sweet. Medium body. crisp nice

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 (2062) - 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.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2004
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 (1663) - 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 (3003) - 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.
