2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ small fizzy white quickly diminishing head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and hops. The taste is earthy hops, caramel malts, straw and a sharp bitter finish, w/ straw & bitter being the dominate characteristic of this beer. Light bodied, watery texture, and lively carbonation.

Bottle as pictured. Had a very strong straw flavor, almost kinda had the corn taste to it. This was pretty thin and weak for the style. Meh.

Light caramel pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Taste is light sweetness, barely a touch of bitter. Rather boring, not much complexity in the flavors - caramel, maybe a little fruit.
Again, a rather boring beer.

Good oktoberfest beer with a slightly bitter taste but goes down smooth and full of flavor.

Perfect white head. Nice carmel color. Not much of a scent. Not a ton of flavor. Thats a little bit like an oktoberfest but just barley. It doesnt have any up front flavors that stand out right away. It does hav a smooth flavor with a minimal after taste. A bit dry perhaps. Ive had about ten of these this year trying to compare it to samuals oktoberfest.... not close

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Single bottle from a Publix mix. Pours amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is caramel, toasted marshmallow, a little yeast. Roast malt and mild caramel is pretty much the taste. Finishes a little bitter. Too sweet and watery for the style.

Sample on tour. Pours a brown/amber with no head. Aroma is slight caramel and taste matches. Boring beer.

Wasn’t expecting much, so I wasn’t disappointed. A rather average interpretation of the style. They didn’t even get the ABV right...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a large fizzy white head. Poor head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, stone fruits and floral hops. The taste is earthy hops, caramel malts, stone fruits and a mildly bitter finish. A bit on the thin side. Decent. 200th Wisconsin rating!

Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest has a thin-to-medium, cream-colored head, a clear, amber appearance, some streaming bubbles, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, toasted barley malt. Taste is of the same, with a light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, semi-dry, and highly drinkable. This paired well with the deluxe breakfast platter. I rate it very good. RJT
