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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Nice golden amber pour with a sustained three-fingered head. It has an aroma of sweet toasty malts with a subtle trace of earthy bitterness. The flavor is much the same althouth the earthy/floral hops increase somewhat as the drink progresses. Decent enough.

A nice example of an Oktoberfest beer. Nice mouthfeel, good malty flavor, good after taste.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2007
Deep amber body with a beige head. Aroma is heavily malty, lots of graininess. Flavour is mostly simple after a really nice aroma. Starts out sweet and thin, develops very mild toasty notes and finishes with a little bitterness.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2007
12 oz. bottle pours an orange/amber with a yellowish tan head of medium duration but little lace. Fresh toasty grain aroma and no discernible hop fragrances. Medium body and carbonation, nicely rich and smooth without any sugary stickiness. Good flavor balance for the style, leaning toward sweet, and light bitterness coming on late. Overall, pretty decent and true to the traditional style.

RSRIZZO (1872) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Aroma is a light dry malt scent. Color is a bright golden brown with very good carbonation and a nice head. Taste is a carmel malt favor with light bitterness. Starting with medium body it goes down with a crisp yet smooth feel. Finish is a sweet carmel malt flavor backed by a faint hop flavor and mild bitterness that leads into a dry after taste. Its a light and refreshing Oktoberfest .

This might not be terrible on its own, but side by side with real German marzens, it is terrible and nearly undrinkable. Metal and grass in the aroma, and more of the same in the flavor. Orange with a tall white head, making the appearance its best quality.

nickspies (78) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Very fresh aroma, which is to be expected since it just came out and Colorado is close by. Not much malt in the nose though. Beautiful copper color with a light brown head. Typical head retention for an Oktoberfest, however excellent lacing. More sucrose than maltose taste, not much else. Chewy and full-bodied.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2007
On Draft @ Sunset Grill with the Mad_Indian. Pours iced tea colored with an average size white head. Aroma of caramel, sweetness, and slight toast. The flavor is sweet, caramel, lightly toasted, with a somewhat thin and watery body.

pineypower (2614) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours out light copper/orange color with a moderate white head. Aroma is malty with slight caramel. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Overall I don’t really like this style, but this was rather drinkable.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours amber with a white head. Smells of pepper, caramel, some citrus. Tastes of caramel, pepper, spice, some tea, biscuits. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with a sweet finish. Closer to a German Oktoberfest than many of the other American examples I’ve tried.
