COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden amber in color, our Oktoberfest is brewed with generous blends of imported malt and hops. This Limited Edition Lager is delightfully balanced and very smooth. A perfect complement to autumn!

hopscotch (9263) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle… Brilliant, clear, copper-colored lager with a small, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates in a heartbeat. Hearty caramel, burnt sugar and toasty, malty, frangrances rise from the glass. Full-bodied and a tad syrupy with tingly carbonation. Malty, sweet, caramel flavor. Hopped just enough to provide a semblance of balance. Malty, moderately sweet finish. Being a total malt head, I’m a big fan of this style. This one certainly didn’t disappoint!

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Clear reddish pour with a pencil thin head that quickly fades. Very malty aroma with some caramel apple notes. Taste is caramel, yogurt covered raisins (yeah, weird, i know) and some subtle hops. Medium bodied.

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2008
This pours a clear amber body with a slender head that soon reduces to a ring around the glass. It has a sweet aroma of caramel and juicy fruit. The flavor gets back to the business of an Oktoberfest, having a toasty malt taste with a balancing herbal/earthy bitterness. Not bad.

jrob21 (2606) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle at the Midway. Pours a cloudy dark orange almost brown color. Muted aroma of wheat, grain, and bread. Flavor is faint again with some bread and toasted grain with a bit of a bitter hop finish. Have had way better this season.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle: Pours a dark amber color with a light head. The nose is toasty with some caramel and juicy plums. A bit of toast, dough and yeast in the flavor with a hint of alcohol and apple in the tail. Decent oktoberfest beer with a little more fruit than I like. Decent balance and a chewy body.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Copper/golden color with a thin white head. Malty mouth feel with a slightly roasted caramel taste and a mild sweet aroma.

Hangover (1060) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Nice brow-reddish pour with a thin beige head. Aroma is caramel with sweet malty notes. Flavor isn’t quite a sweet as the aroma belies, but there is a nice malty, caramel, bisquit thing going on. Even some herbal notes towards the finish. Sweet, medium bitter finish. Pretty decent ofest.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle: Pour is amber/golden with a nice off-white head. Aroma is biscuity with light hops. Flavor is light malt with light/medium hop characters. Real easy drink and blended real well. May buy again.

Somewhat dry finish for an Oktoberfest. Decent for the style-- but this style is not one of my favorites so I’ll leave the gory details to others.

tedovertu (283) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Medium amber copper color. A little bitter for a Oktoberfest but balanced with some sweet malt. Medium bodied with a little dryer finish than most Marzen’s.
