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.

a little too spicy in the hop department for the style, but still overall a decent representation.

PintPiner (22) - Maple Grove, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Poured from a bottle with a thin ivory head & a copper color. Big malty aroma with hints of toffee. Slight lacing, mild carbonation with medium-light body & mouthfeel. Malty up front with subtle notes of caramel. I enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
From the bottle, pours a clear red with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is malty and that of frat house lager. Taste is underwhelming. Malty, thin, quaffable but otherwise just ok.

TomTron (363) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. Aromas of malts and more malts. Flavor is basically the same but the carbonation is a lot more soft than I was expecting. No detectable hop presence but for this style, that’s expected. Leaves an oily mouthfeel and has a bit of a watery finish but it’s not a bad offering at all.

ryecatcher (720) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle. Coppery amber pours, not much head or lacing. Nose is malty, toffee, some dried fruit. Mouth is malt forward (duh), some caramel but doesn’t really go anywhere else. Drinkable, but not remarkable. What’s the German conversational equivalent of ’porch pounder’?

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2013
12oz bottle. Middling as far as oktoberfests go. Aroma is nice, medium, kind of malty. I think the palate is good, with proper carbonation and an appropriately strong aftertaste. The taste is fine, no real complexity unfortunately, and it lacks malty warmth. Overall, not great, but not bad either.

EtTuCthulhu (991) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a clear brownish orange color with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends caramel malts, nutty malts, and dough yeast, which is really pleasant. The taste is a very nice blend of a slight sourness, slight sweetness, and a touch of umami. Also, the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, fairly abrupt yet malty finish, and thin texture.

UncleKorm (731) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ thin fizzy quickly and fully diminishing beige head. Moderate bready aroma. Initial flavor moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are copper, light toast, and caramel. Medium bodied, average carbonation, and a dry finish.

10/5/13 7th of 8 beer variety pack and last beer of the night. Fighting over Sally struthers and a " drop in the bucket" Orange color but no head. not much of anything going on. Boooooo ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcnielsen (1984) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber-red color with white head. Caramel, grainy, earthy aromas. Caramel, malty sweet flavors. Pretty solid oktoberfest, I could knock back a bunch of these.
