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!

Suttree (6010) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Brilliant clear reddish copper, decent white head. Nice toasty aroma. Flavor is similiar, with a touch of whole wheat bread and caramel. Also a touch of stale cardboard, too, which was disappointing

NIce smooth amber colored oktoberfest lager. Has a nice crisp hoppy finish which makes it a little less malt-centered than most oktoberfests. A well done, unique interpretation. Mendocino delivers a great product at a great price.

BuckeyeBoy (5640) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle Pours out a clear amber topped with a white head. Aroam of malts and light spice. Tast more of the spice and malts. Not a bad Octoberfest brew.

Mid range quality on this beer. Orange color. Malt in the flavor and aroma. Some caramel, and just a little sweet with some dryness in the finish.

Cornfield (5570) - 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.

jgb9348 (5555) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Very nice ruby/amber coloured body with a perfect sized tan head. A few bubbles rise from the bottom, but nothing amazing - still a good beer from this brewery - in looks at least. Aroma of fresh grassy hops, nice caramel malt, nuts and some light spices. Medium-bodied; Sharp taste of caramel malt up front fading to a very light hoppy flavour covered up by a potent yet understated metallic twang. Aftertaste shows the malt and light hops more afterwards, leaving some bittering in the palate. Overall, a decent marzen - nothing special, but the looks and immediate tastes are pretty nice. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 11-November-2007.

thedm (5553) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent uncarbonated golden brown colored body. The almost non-existant aroma was malty. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of hops and brown malt. Not one that I would likely buy again.

Location: 12 oz Bottle from Norm’s, Sept ’08

Overall Impression: I enjoyed this one, had a great nose, some malty caramel flavors, and a solid taste that makes you feel like autumn.

vyvvy (5529) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Pours copper / bronze with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is a little rich, but has some dryness, caramel malt, floral traits and almost an autumn leafiness ~ that sounds odd but its just what it reminded me of. Medium / thin body with some sharp carbonation. The flavors starts with dry caramel, woody traits and a leafy dryness. The finish has an even more earthy presence. A decent oktoberfest.

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Bright light copper color with a diminishing light taupe head. LIght caramel and some celery scents. Nice toasted malt start that leads to a watery bitterness. Nice return of the malt in the linger. A touch to bitter for an ideal Oktoberfest, but a nice fall brew.
