pours a deep gold w/ a small off-white head. clear, and good carbonation. Getting som toasted bread, and caramel on the nose. No hints of hops. Medium body, good carbonation. Smooth. Slight hop bitterness in the finish. Tasting nicely toasted malts, bready, and caramel followed by a small a small amount of hop bitterness. I’m liking this beer.

The bottle I have is "Original Oktoberfest" which came out of a sampler box. The color is typical Octoberfest with a rich carmel color. Has a bitterness that I don’t care for as it finishes.

(bottled) Rich malt aroma and brilliantly clear dark amber color. Wonderful toasty caramel malt presence with a plum fruit note and a lightly bitter hoppiness. Lingering sweet raisin finish. Superb!

2nd Oktoberfest of the season. Prefer it much more so over the Sam Adams version. Deep amber color with pleasant hoppy mouthfeel.

If your in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the Marshall Island this is the Best Beer you can get. It has a nice aroma that smells sweat and nutty. The malt flavor is a little strong but overall the flavor is very enjoyable. The hops is a little hidden but comes out towards the end. A pretty good everyday beer or just slightly better.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 If anything this beer should have had more hops. It was a little weak to me. It was a dark orange with a brown head. Most prevalent taste is the roasted malts you taste at the end.

Pours a dark, transparent amber with a thin, white head that fades. Excellent lacing. Balanced, subtle aroma. Creamy, but somewhat thin mouthfeel. Taste is likewise balanced - a good, traditional Munich representative of the style. One of the best of its breed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Perfect beer. real good. Not good on lace, but taste and body is brilliant. Its similar to a bock and a brown ale. Delicious.
