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.

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.

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?

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.

Skunky DMS aroma....thanks green bottles...grassy metallic notes in the nose. Piss yellow, clear, small white head. I’ve seen darker Light beers...Sour with some mild roasted malts in the middle. Thin and skunky. Bad shit.

Not what I was expecting. Poured golden yellow with no hints of amber as I’ve seen in most other "Oktober" brews. I can’t figure out what style of beer this really is. The flavor was off - bitter and unbalanced. Nose is okay, hints of citrus and malt. The finish has a weird chemical quality. Would not purchase again (even though this case was dirt cheap).

Pale, golden color which I thought to be most unusual for an Octoberfest offering. Pleasantly flavorful. Smooth, Crisp, Hints of Lemon and Cornflakes. Nice, slight butteriness on the finish. Resembles a pilsener in my opinion. More than ample carbonation.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2004
Malty, sweet aroma. Slightly soapy. Malty, grainy, sweet taste with a hint of caramel. Slightly hop-bitter finish. Okay.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2004
Pale gold with a bubbly white head. Aromas are grain, lemon - sweet and zesty. Flavours are citrus and apricot with grain. The finish is dry and bitter with petrol notes. More malt liquor than the typical Oktoberfest beer. Lacks any delicate sophistication. Still, for what it actually is - its not bad.
