Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass a very nice dark amber with a smaller head. It smelled of roasted malts and a bit of carmel. It is smoothed and pretty full bodied. I was picking up some dark fruits in the taste. You also start to get a bit of a dough taste in your mouth as it warms. A good Octoberfest.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2005 I was not as impressed by this beer as I expected to be. It was pretty good, but it seemed a little thin to me. Thin feel, thin flavor. I would have liked it a little fuller. There are other beers I like better that aren’t so damned expensive.



Re-rate: better than last time, but still not worth $10 per sixer.

Brownish-gold colour, small white head. Malty and wheaty fragrance. Taste of bread, malts.

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.

Tselloufc88 (312) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle from the Rugby Tap. Looks very nice in the glass, much darker than other traditional Oktoberfest’s. Grassy, caramel, toasted aromas. Taste is biscuity, caramel, grassy, bit of toffee in there. Slightly sweet finish. Decent.

This is a wonderful Oktoberfest with a nice taste of hops. It pours a beautiful amber with a small white head. The Palate is just average, but the flavor and aroma is just awesome! The hops shine and the yeast gives it a slight twist. Nicely Done!

Odde (308) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at Pour House at Grand Central, Tampa, FL. Amber body with German hops, malt and light barnyard notes that grew rather taxing while progressing through the beer.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours burnt copper, with a thin white head. Nose is sweet and caramel. Flavor sweet caramel, slightly bready, mild. Finish was metallic and slightly bitter. Not bad, but I was expecting more from a beer that had a German sounding name.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 My favorite of this style. Even dig the labeling. I get tired of this style after a while though--starts to taste like beer just to drink to get drunk on, that is, loses its complexity after a few bottles. Okay for a seasonal change, though, and this is truly representational of the style. If I'm after Oktoberfest bier, I'll choose this. The big difference, I think, is in the palate--definitely a bigger, chewier mouthful than the rest.
