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.

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 (6355) - 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.

MadIndian (2621) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Sampled with Stegosaurus during our second Boston Tour. Served at Sunset Grill. Clear copper pour with mild malt aroma. Thin in body and taste. There was a mild bitter hop finish but I was not impressed.

Copper color with a thin head. Caramel aroma. The caramel turns slightly sour in the taste. A bit of corn and grain. Kinda blah.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2011 Excellent american oktoberfest. Nice and malty!! with a tiny hop presence. This is one of the more flavorful of all Oktoberfests i have tried. A step above schaflleys, lienkugels, and so on and so on. Better than Sammy Oktoberfest ... maybe the best American oktoberfest there is!

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Pours a clear amber color with a fairly small, eggshell shite, pillowy head leaving no lacing. Nose is toasted caramel, roasted nuts, and sweet bread. Flavor is similar with rich toasted caramels, light toffee, and nutty sweet bread notes. Palate is light to medium, lively, and crisp, maybe a bit viscous. Finishes sweet with rich caramel and almonds. Richer than most of its German counterparts but lacks their drinkability. Nice change of pace as far as Ofests go but almost too swee for its own good.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate off-white head that faded before mid-glass. Pleasant aroma of caramel. Flavor was caramel, lightly sweet, with a bit of hops at the finish. Medium bodied with a smooth finish. Above average oktoberfest beer.

Bottle. Overall this, like many of the Oktoberfest beers I’ve had so far this season are just okay. Nothing bad about this beer, aroma of grass with malts. Flavor is about the same, with a touch of hops in there.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2007
On draught at speakeasy 9/17/07. Pours a hazy copper with a little head that fades immediately. Aroma is malty and slightly bready. Typical marzen flavor--I’ve only had about 3 marzens this year and I’m already getting sick of the flavor. yada yada yada, not my favorite style.

Pours orange/copper. Grassy and malty aroma. Fairly creamy mouthfeel with some caramel malt and toffee balanced by some hops. Average Oktoberfest.
