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!

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap at Barclay’s in Berkeley, CA. Pours a dull amber with gold edges and lasting tan head. Nice strength aroma of dark fruitiness, roasted malts, mild caramel and faint spices. The taste is similar to the aroma with prunes, dates and plums mixed with roasted malts and sweet caramelized malts. Nice rich malty offering of the style. The sweetness does build up a bit but not bad at all for the style.

Ughsmash (7406) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear light-medium orange with a short dusting of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, lightly-toasted caramel, candy, and light fruits with a soft and welcoming appeal. The flavor was very sweet, with toasted caramel and lighter fruits at the base.. aged leafy floral and herbal bitterness extend toward the finish.. but still too sweet throughout.. caramel and light herbal notes at the finish. Light-plus bodied and sweet on the palate with decent bitter complements. Sweet and relatively simple, yet a smooth, tasty, easy-drinking brew.

drowland (7095) - Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2010
5/10/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is cloudy red with a small white head. The aroma is huge caramel and grain with distinct oxidized homebrew. The flavor is red roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits, etc... really too much for an Oktoberfest.

PorterPounder (6390) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour with a thin white head that dissipates quickly - very autumn looking. Sweet aroma, with some sweet molasses and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet as well with some brief hints caramel, pumpkin, and molasses. Smooth, clean mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle courtesy of kmweaver. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of caramel, some appley hints. Tastes of caramel, some spice, hints of resiny hops, some syrup. Not bad for what it is.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Fiery amber, quite clear, moderate foamy off-white head, decent lacing, light carbonation.   Soft malty nose, seems slightly sweet, a little bit of honeycomb cereal.   Somewhat mealy on the tongue, certainly malty, moderately sweet, clean, with a finish that lingers with sweet malts and a bit of creamed honey.   A pleasant sweet lager.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, even smooth and a bit creamy.   Only thing I would say that detracts is its resemblance to a cereal.   Tone down the sweetness a bit and I think then we’ve got something.   Thanks toJah Noth for the bottle!

radagast83 (5953) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Sampled from bottle. Flavor was that of citrus and tart fruit. Flavor was decent enough, and a surprise result from most of the Oktoberfest beers I’ve been having lately.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Nose is mostly toasty with a touch of earthy hops and light metallic notes. Pours amber, decently lasting head, a touch of lace here and there. Nice bright color. Flavor is toasty with light caramel, a touch of bread, and soft earthy hop flavors. A metallic note is noticeable also. Not bad, not that good either.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5658) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark ruby-caramel color with a small khaki head that faded quickly. The aroma was tangy, sweet and malty with a hint of nut. The flavor was sour, tangy, malty, fruity and a bit vegetal.
