4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful beer. Dry-hopped, crisp earthy aroma, munich breadiness, toasted wheat, some toffee/butterscotch notes. Despite the high alcohol on this imperial oktoberfest it is extremely smooth. Everything you want in an oktoberfest.

bottle. clear amber with a small white head. fruity, malty, estery aroma. more fruity than toasty. in typical leinenkugel fashion this beer has a good bit of residual sweetness. the malts are sweet with notes of toast, butter and caramel. fruity, berry-like hop flavors. full body with slightly sticky. sweet and tasty oktoberfest candy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ WI State Fair. Poured rich deeper brown with not much head. The aroma picked up warm caramel and nutty notes with spicy and leafy accents.. warmed up the back of the nose. The flavor found warm caramel, nutty notes, and a kiss of honey with black pepper, rye, and fruity accents.. spicy, memorable finish. Medium-plus bodied and well-balanced.. I need more!

On tap at the micro.
Poured a syruppy light brown with a whisoy tan head. Aroma of light roast malts sweet caramels amd syrups a light touch of spiced bread. Full rich creamy palate. Flavor was surprisingly good. Like a big sweet oktoberfest. The seertness builds a bit and limits this to something id drink one kf but still darn good.

Clear Amber with a foamy yet fizzy head that fades after a few minutes; Good lacing Nose is citrus hops, caramel, roasted barley & malts, yeasts and some nutty notes. Flavor is floral hops, roasted barley, nuts, citrus, and yeasts. Body is moderate in weight yet thick at the same time; Carbonation is between mild and moderate. A bit boozy but surprisingly good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest has a thin, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, brilliant orange-copper appearance, and a little bit of thin lacing left behind. The aroma is rather bold- rich, bready malt, brown bread crust, a bit of orange, some sweetness, and a pungent note. Taste is of rich, sweet, bready, barley malt, sweetness, mandarin orange pulp, brown bread crust, slight nut, and a fairly pronounced straight-forward hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, with some carbonation prickle, and Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest finishes decently crisp, easy-drinking, and remarkably smooth. Overall, this is delicious, and I strongly advise trying it. RJT

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a brilliant amber with an orange hue and minimal, slightly off whit foam cap. Aroma is strong caramel and toasted malt with a definite citrus/ floral hop aroma, which is interesting for an Oktoberfest. Taste is a deep rich caramel malt with a little roast and hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is rather thick with little carbonation. Finish is malt heavy and a bit sticky on the tongue. Overall, it’s what you’d expect for an "imperial" Oktoberfest. Nicely balanced with hops to keep the malt from being too overpowering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a clear, amber color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is very inviting with lots of spice and malt. This is probably one of the boldest and heaviest Oktoberfest beers I’ve had. It’s sweeter because of the extra alcohol at 8.5% somewhat more hops than I would expect too. Not exactly what I’m looking for an Oktoberfest style beer but it’s still interesting.

Best Oktoberfest I’ve ever tasted. So far, my favorite. Sweet with shuttle hints of caramel, orange, molasses. Easy drinking beer over a fire. Goes great with cheese snacks.
