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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish/amber color, kind of a cola color. Very little head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty, with molasses, caramel perhaps. Flavor is also malty, with molasses, perhaps some creamy chocolate as well. Some thickness in the palate. Overall it’s good for an Oktoberfest, a fun, drinkable beer.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Sweet roasty aroma. Clear amber color that pours a great, but quickly dissipating head. Sweet flavors of malt, light hints of fruit, and perfect hop balance. not bad

Light copper in color, with moderate white head that disappears quickly. Malty sweet aroma. Medium bodied, with good malt background and a decent hop bitterness that keeps it from being cloying.

Bottle. Pours a nice ruby color with a large head. Hints of roasted grain followed by butterscotch and brown sugar. One of the better Oktoberfest beers I have had in 2008.

Pretty good Oktoberfest. Clear dark amber color with quickly diminishing head. Carmel malt taste. Crystal clear body. Light to medium bodied with a watery texture.
