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 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 a dark red honey/amber with some mild nutty aroma. Rich pecan pie flavor, tastes like autumn. Smooth finish with a slight bitterness. Very nice for a cool fall evening. M.

Had a glass at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor as part of a sampler. Solid, but uninspiring. Spicy, but a little boring.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Pours a copper-brown color with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and toasted bread. Aroma is malty, with a hint of spice. A little too sweet, but not overpowering. Nice bittersweet finish, but a little thin mouthfeel. A good seasonal, but not something I’d want to drink over and over.

Dark oarnge.Medium head,is off white and decent lasting. Mainly malty-toast,toffee/caramel, sweetness. Light earthy, hop aromas. Fizzy mouthfeel,medium body,and wimpy texture. Sweet malt flavors. Mainly caramel/toffee. Finish is pronounced toasty,malty.Lingering earthy/herbal hop notes. Not too much flavor,except the finish,but quite sweet. Not one of my favorite O'fests.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Medium brown with a light tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and apples. Flavor, as expected, on the sweet side, lots of caramel and cookie, with quite a bit of toast. Light herbal and spicy notes in the finish.

Light amber pour with an off whit head. Aroma of citrus and light hops. Medium light body, accompanied by a brisk, crisp palate. Flavor is lacking, however.

Carlisle (541) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber with thick head that dissipated quickly. Malt, light toasted bread, and biscuit in nose. Malty bread up front with a touch of toffee; a bit sweet near the finish. Lacks mouthfeel: overall, body is thin; more body would result in a higher rating. A slight bitterness in the finish with a hint of corn; a touch of alcohol in the finish as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Aroma is malty, with some toasty and caramel aspects. Dark amber color, decent head. Flavor is dominated by malt, as it should be. I had this in October and thought it was too hoppy, but now the hop character has all but disappeared. Medium body. Overall a decent Marzen.
