4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
