HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Pours golden yellow which I would consider light for an Octoberfest. Has a fizzy white head. The nose is malty with some noble hop aroma. Flavor is malty but not too sweet. Balancing bitterness in the backend lets you drink it all night. This is a good session beer and would be a hit with BMC lovers.

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Crystal clear blonde coloured body with a small but frothy white head. Aroma of pale malt, cardboard, caster sugar and some old german hops-not too pleasant. Medium-bodied; Suprising caramel and fuller taste of malt and a light low a.a. hoppiness. Aftertaste just shows some light caster sugar and subtle off-flavours such as cardboard. Overall, not really an ’oktoberfest’ style beer (such as a Marzen), but I really can’t argue with the Germans. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle fresh from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on Thanksgiving Thursday, 25-November-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Cereal malt aroma, some dull sweetness noted with lighter notes of skunky, herbal hop and musty vegetable. Light-medium golden color, highly effervescent with a thickly foamy, lasting head. Flavor is lightly bitter and hoppy to start, a bit of mild spiciness, then turns sweet and sugary with some very faint caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel is oddly thick for this style but still highly carbonated, body is light-medium. More of a malt liquor feel, I suppose. Hum.

Bad. This doesn’t taste like an Oktoberfest. Of course, I don’t really know what on Oktoberfest tastes like, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t it. It was just gross.

This beer is really awful, bad aroma, bad flavor, bad price, nothing like an oktoberfest beer. I am shocked that they would bother importing this.

Really disappointed. I like standard Lowenbrau, but this just tasted like Tennent’s Super.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Light gold, no real amber color. Nose sweet. Flavor is distinctly not Oktoberfest-esque, no biscuity character at all, negligible caramel. Malty and sweet, not harsh, but there’s no way you could even vaguely call this a marzen. From the strength and sweetness, it’s a European Strong Lager. I don’t care what’s on the label.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2004
I found this beer to be utterly awful. It looked like coors light coming out of the bottle, and didn’t really taste like anything. It has a bitter aftertaste that is more powerful than it’s actual flavor. I thought this was supposed to be an Octoberfest?

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Hoppy spicy nose, some cooked corn, band-aid. Rye bread. Medium golden clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation, soft on the palate. Herbal notes prevail, salty, with decent maltiness. Medium bitterness and good hops throughout, grainy finish. Some sweet honey, too. The aftertaste, in light of the saltiness, reminds me of the taste left over in your mouth after you’ve eaten crab or fake crab meat. A salty seafoody taste, mixed with some hops and light grains. Odd.
