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.

Beautiful copper color. Huge malty sweet aroma. very bready and sweet and full of malty bomb goodness. My favorite oktoberfest by far. Could drink gallons of this brew.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2007
The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear medium dark reddish amber beverage with a modest sized frothy off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left some good lacing on the glass. The aroma was consistent with a good Oktoberfest with good notes of toffee, caramel bread and a hint of floral hops. The body was medium-light with average carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started out just barely sweet and stayed that way through the medium length finish which was slightly on the dry side.

Pours copper in color with a small off white head. Aroma has bit of sweetness. THe taste has a bit of caramel and the finish has a bit of bitterness. Overall this was a bit of a beer. Not very impressed.

Pours a copper amber with a medium orangeish frothy head. The aroma is sweet, grainy, malty, peathy, a little nutty. The flavor is grainy, mildly sweet, not too hot. The palate was pretty average.

McGarnigle (619) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottled 9/18/07. Clear copper color with fluffy tannish head. Mostly standard Oktoberfest stuff, caramel-toffee and toasted nuts. I thought this was a bit sweeter than others, although there’s some hops and dryness at the end. Still, the aftertase wasn’t as clean as I’d liked. The body is nice, with soft, fine bubbles.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Orange/amber with a big fluffy white head. Sour malt and yeast dominate the aroma. Flavor is big and malty with a light citrus touch and a soft, bittersweet finish. Caramel and buttery toffee notes with a slight bite from the citrus. Slightly sugary; rich, flavorful and complex for a marzen. I like this beer immensely.

vyvvy (5863) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours clear bronze with a rocky light tan head. The aroma is quite faint with some caramel malt and some spiciness (hops?). Meidum body with over-abundance of carbonation. The taste is on the watery side with caramel malt that is medicinal and metallic. The finish is still quite medicinal and peppery - not very good.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Nice amber/brown with smallish head. Nice raosted malts and juicy fruit flavors emerge from this seasonal brew. Applesauce, berries, corn, malts, and a touch of alcohol mark the aromas. A full flavored entry with coffee roasting, fruit balanced and subtle hops which has a souring tinge effect on the tounge, yet yields a creamier body. A nice Oktoberfest brew.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Amber colored. Slightly hazy. Small white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, and nuts. Flavor is the same, but it is really nice. It just works together. Its got all of the flavors from most fest beers, but they work together the best. Smooth and drinkable. Each sip made me want more. The best Fest beer I have drank this season for sure!
