Kind of bland and flavorless. Malt doesn't really jump out at you and the hops are just kind of a background bitterness. Not the best fest bier.

Good color, but the flavor is not very distinguishable from something like a PBR, it just tastes like beer, not an Oktoberfest.

Beerdedone (2981) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2015

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Bronze and caramel with a nice head. Grainy malty, and sweet bread with light earthy hops. On the lighter side with good carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking even on a warm day. Pretty good Oktoberfest beer, but not amazing.

Weevo (79) - Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle, pours mahogany with just a ring of a tan head. Couldn't pick out much of an aroma. Taste of malt and yeast. Actually thought it tasted better as it warmed up a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: grain and bread malts. Appearance: hazy, dark gold, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: very malty, bread and grains again Overall: OK, yet fails to excite. Pint at Big Brew, Morristown.

JonnyMadison (84) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is pretty generic. Taste is thin and more acidic and biting, with little flavor to back that up. It seems watery and tart. Not really anything Oktoberfest in my mind. Not bad, just boring.

"I agree about the slight apple in the aroma. This one started off pretty boring, but opened up nicely. Lots of carmel malt and a little back end hop bitterness. A little on the light side, but not bad. Surprisingly I’m kinda defending a Lakefront beer. Usually not a fan

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle - Amber pour with a ring of tan head. Nose is a bit milky, soured bready malt, with some lightly spicy grain and a hint of sweetness. Taste is the same--bready, lightly sour, a hint of spicy grain, and a little warmth on the finish. Medium-thin and well-carbonated. Not as bad as I would have guessed given the reviews, but certainly a notch or two below the German classics.
