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.

Pours Amber/Copper in color. Nose of Malty caramel. Pretty light for what the nose suggests, a mild flavor of burnt coffee bean, and malty bitterness on the end. Egh..

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Orange-amber pour into thick foamy pale yellow head that fully dissipates into a ring of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malty rye bread and sweet citrus. Inital flavor of citrusy malt fading into a short-lasting peppery hoppy bite with a sweet lingering finish.

Single bottle, Total Wine. Pours a coppery orange with a fairly large white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, a little fruit. Taste has the same characteristics - pretty mild. Bitter ending. Pretty average for the style.

bbp182 (255) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2007
The appearance is a nice medium/dark amber color. Very nice aroma. Nice malty smell to it. And the taste is very smooth and has great drinkability to it. Little malty, but good.

falco242 (251) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2013
From the bottle...clear bronze pour with just a bit of head. Nice breadiness to it for an Oktoberfest, and a bit more malty than typical. Makes it more full bodied, and it works well. Solid seasonal.

Amber color with light beige head. Tastes of malt, caramel and rye bread. Easy to drink, pleasant but quite ordinary.

This beer is pretty mild, but I'm liking it. Drinkability is a horrible word invented by Coors and Bud to justify their beer tasting like water, but it applies here. This slightly malty, tasty-yet-subtle beer scores high in drinkability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
