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.

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

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.

Clear copper pour with thinnest of tan on top. Aromas are malty toast and caramel. Flavor is more of the same. Simple, tasty, though slightly too carbonated. Great for the style - glad I got six. This is a winner.

Bottle from Bert’s Deep copper color off white head. Big bready caramel maltiness. A bit too much caramel for the style. Earthy spicy hops to counter. Middle of the road American attempt at a classic German style.

Draft. Copper color with quickly dissipating head. Mildly sweet flavor. An average Marzen nothing outstanding.

radio_nowhere (1395) - Maryland, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle into pint glass, clear copper-amber color with light tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, toast and faint earthiness. Taste adds light toffee, roast and faint bitter spiciness. Light-medium body,low-moderate carbonation, creamy yet crisp, with clean minimal roast finish. Overall a pretty solid Oktoberfest.
