Vikingbeau (67) - Albertville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Her appearance is average, ruby orange in color, she failed to shave her pits. Her taste includes a slight hint of pumpkin carmel...Her snatch is a little bland...Overall she is solid.

Pours a brown colour, taste is quite malty with some carmelisation, not bad and different to what I was expecting

Bottle, Pours clear amber medium tan head. Aroma a bit rusty, also some caramel malt and grassy hops. Taste medium-high sweetness. Medium body, thinner texture and a little sticky, light sweet and light bitter finish. Overall nice Oktoberfest

sawbuck (357) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Rich aromao of roasty caramel, and some hints of raisin. Crystal clear deep gold/amber with a huge fluffy white head you can rest a bottle cap on. Muted sweet caramel up front. Bitterness comes in quick, peppery and average in strength. Sligtly water mouth feel, Finsihes rather bland.

tightslice (233) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Corney keg at Evernote Oktoberfest. Aroma and taste is straw, caramel, burnt sugar. Ultimately not much going on.

J_man (725) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Nice, rich German lager aroma. Beautiful crystal clear amber/copper color with a foamy, long-lasting white head. Excellent biscuity caramel malt Oktoberfest taste. Well balanced and restrained noble hops. Lightly creamy texture with a fullness that’s still easy to drink and refreshing. Leaves a nice toasty and slightly bitter taste behind. Definitely one of the best German Oktoberfest beers out there.

GlasgowTAD (112) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2014
This beer is bronze with a frothy head. Smell is sweet malts. Taste follows the aroma; at first too sweet but mellows after a while. Not bad but not my thing. Too malty sweet

minutemat (1823) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
500ml bottle from Beerdock, Crewe. Pours chestnut brown with good cream head. Faint caramel aroma. Taste is fairly weak along the lines of average supermarket real ale. Lightly sweet character with a vague bitterness but ultimately not a lot going on. Disappointing.

TheJester (1941) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
Draught pint at St Veronus Oktoberfest. Nice chestnut colour. Not much head but laces nicely. Somehow sweet but dry for the style at the same time. Goes nicely with Gruenkohl Suppe and Brathendl, I think.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2014
On tap at The Knick. Malty beany sweet, double decoction-type aroma. Golden amber-dark clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet and malty, noble hops. Beany-sweet nutty finish with lingering malty after. Tasty Oktoberfest.
