COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

ordybill (1234) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Appearance, has a murky orange color with a small white head. The aroma is big on sweet wheat and hops. The flavor is full of malt with fruit and wheat filling in the gaps. The brew is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and has a creamy texture. A really fine version of an Oktoberfest beer.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a bright orange with a nice foamy head that does dissipate after a couple minutes. Aroma is somewhat generic, a most beers of this style are. Basic bready, yeasty maltiness. Flavor comes along better, with the same yeast and sweetness, but a more bready, biscuity aspect. Very nice. Palate is typical. Overall a damn decent Oktoberfest.

JDBaker11058 (1790) - Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2015
appearance: deep clear copper, short, creamy near-white head, some lacing. aroma: sweet caramel, toasted dark brown bread, maybe a bit of stone fruit. taste: caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toast, graham cracker, then a small dose of fruit (raisin or cherry) underneath. finish: a bit of earthy, slightly grassy hops cleans away some of the sweetness. notes: This is a tad fuller, sweeter, and fruitier than the standard style, but it’s very tasty and very well done. Would drink again. Bottle from Total Wine & More, Alexandria, Virginia.

New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle: pours coppery amber with a with a whitish head. Aroma is caramel and bread. Taste is sweet with a light hoppy undertone. Kind of bready. Medium bodied. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

J_man (900) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 10, 2015
The aroma starts off good with bready malt but also some dark fruit and caramel. Slightly hazy orange/amber. There’s some German lager flavor at first, but it’s quickly buried under black cherries, molasses and dark caramel. Too much sweetness and heaviness here. Hops are good and subdue the sweetness nicely. Licorice rises towards the end to make a confusing finish. Overall, a nice beer, just not really to the Oktoberfest style.

Deep, dark cooper with deep reds and brown hues. Almost a brown ale look. Roasted deep sweet malt, a step under sticky. Very little carbonation and a small hop bitter slide at the end. Sweetness fades at the end but rounds out well. A nice Oktoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4248) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2015
On tap at the Oktoberfest at CBB Bud Left hand Oktoberfest 6.8% is a clear amber with a soft malty caramel aroma, sweet. It’s got a round active carbonation that prickles the tongue. The taste is malty caramel, bready with a nice little hop bite in the finish.

Amber color with thick, white head which dissipates significantly. Smooth of the palate, moderately carbonated. Malty flavor. Very good beer.

12 oz. bottle from Prost Beer and Wine. Although I have had this before I had to pick up another because I forgot to rate. Reason I forgot to rate it is because it’s rather forgettable. Aroma is standard stale yeast, breads and caramel found in the style.

The flavor is indeed classic of the style but the thing that kills it for me is the very thin body. Watery in texture. Nothing off putting just thin. Sweet toffee/ caramel finish.
