Copper colered with a small whitesh head. The aroma is predominately fresh malt. The flavor is again malty, but very fresh tasting. Toward the finish, some hints of grain. Flavor and finish is full as expected from an Oktoberfest. Very smooth and very drinkable.

Seriously underrated. Easy drinking approachable Marzen that has decent malt back bone with good bready character. Actually fairly authentic and enjoyable though still a bit of beer on training wheels compared to stuff in Munich.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $5.99/6-pack. Not bad.

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a nice orange amber, with minimal head. Aroma is spicy and sweet. Nice spice mix to the body and enough sweetness for the style. Good, but nothing that stands out as unique or exceptional.

9/08/12. Poured from bottle into pint glass. Strong but appealing aroma. Looks great in the glass; dark, amber tones. Taste comes on moderately strong but bitter and then it is gone. Is this an Octoberfest? The beer has a weird, unpleasant, alcohol finish. This is my first tasting of Lakefront and I am not impressed. ---Rated via the Gridfather

Appearance: clear medium copper with one finger of near white rocky head. Aroma: toasted malts, caramel, a bit of cashew. Taste: as the aroma indicated. Finish: clean, slightly toasty, with a bit of sweetness. Notes: Perfectly fine Oktoberfest. A notch above average.

BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates, light earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant, light hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2013
10/16/13 trade from Jamil. An ok Oktoberfest. Grainy scent, kind of weak. Nice bronze appearance and medium to light feel. More grain than malt flavor, not bad, but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

i tried many times but i’m afraid I can’t get any aroma out of this. C’mon.man. Red amber in color with a thin off tan head. Actually tastes better than it smells. Light maltiness with apple, pear beginning with a light dry champagne feel at the end.

Rating #222 for this beer. Bottle. Nose has a trace of that elusive spagh-funk which no one else ever seems to find, some very mild citrus and pale malt, perhaps a touch of more amberish-Munichy types. Dark amber-brown with a beige head. Taste lightly sweet with caramel/Munich/earth, hops suppressed and no spice, still fresh and light with some spagghy. Fullish body, overall meh.
