Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
Warm golden with a nice head. The aroma has sweetness, malt, caramel and wild, sweet smelling flowers. The flavour has sweetness, notes of malt, caramel and sweet fruits/flowers, and the balance is quite nice.

BeerandBlues2 (10073) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2011 Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, fizzy white head, short retention and faint lacing. Aroma is toasted caramel and biscuit malt, light to medium melanoidins, light spicy hops, and a clean lager character. Flavor is malt dominant with light sweetness and tea-like character, light fruity notes, mild hops, and a clean, dry finish. Medium body, light warmth, medium carbonation.

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2009
500ml bottle (BeerAngel) - stolen off Jarkko at work - thanks!
Rich reddy brown, healthy head. At first a slightly plasticky aroma, but as it warms the malts fill out, and it becomes quite grainy eventually. Pleasant carbonation, refreshing palate. Taste initially a bit metallic. As it warms, again, the softer malts come through and it’s a pleasantly husky graininess that you’re left with. Half a litre disappeared very quickly.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Crystal clear lager. The color is the very definition of amber. Medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head. I really like this Oktoberfest! An entire hive of clover honey in the aroma. Lightly perfumey and smokey as well. Well-balanced, malty brew with notes of caramel and honey with whispers of citrus fruit. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear, caramel brown appearance with an ivory head. Today, caramel, Munich malty, hay, noble hoppy aroma. Medium bodied, good carbonation. Caramel, Munich malty, slightly nutty, grassy hoppy flavor. Smooth, easy drinking but I prefer Paulaner’s offering better.

pivnizub (9012) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle (this beer is not served at Munich’s Oktoberfest !): Amber coloured, small off-white head, quickly vanishing; grainy, slightly malty nose with a nutty touch; faint, sweet malty start, mild bitter flavour, ending in a quite dry, bitter-malty finish with a metallic touch. Drinkable, but really not impressive !

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2013
50cl fliptop bottle [thanks to bierkoning] @ home. Clear dark orange color, medium sized white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma and taste are malts, caramel, a soft sweetness, lightly bread, figs. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.
