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!

JPDIPSO (5318) - 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.

vyvvy (5306) - 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.

heemer77 (5235) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2008
dark copper colored body with a light khaki head. The aroma was caramel and leather. There was an earthy soil compnent, that was acutally nice. The taste was caramel and leather with a light earthy finish of leaves. A decent brew that is certainly a good session option.

cheap (5086) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Slight candy aroma. Colored like iced tea. Comes on pretty bitter for a fest. Similar in behavior to many average malt liquors. Nice carbonation. Fairly bitter and insensitive, like many ales. Pilsner and alky metallic finish, hangs for a while. Don’t think this and Hacker belong in the same league.

BuckeyeBoy (4997) - 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.

Aurelius (4919) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Peppery malt aroma, light raisins. Medium rusty orange, fluffy one-finger head in a pilsener, average label. Crackery, rather plain lager flavor with just a little tin and toast. Lingering woody bitterness. Not sweet. Medium body. Just average.

badgerben (4767) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Another one from JK. Copper color with no head. Floral hop aroma. Fairly sweet malt taste that has a bit of Noble hop bitterness towards the finish. Simple but decent.

Rated on 9-05-2009 at Crown Liquors Event (Bottle) This beer pours a small ivory fizzy head with a short retention, transparent orange body, very little carbonation, and no lacing. The Aroma is malty, earthy hops and spicy. Ditto for the Taste. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character and has no WOW factor and thus a beer that is not on my list of beers to want again.

nearbeer (4616) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2009 355 ml. Clear copper with a small head that disappears. Nose is faint but has notes of spicy wood, earthy molasses and marshmallow. Flavor is woody molasses, grilled corn, some sourish fruit, and slight pepper, all with some toasted-nut malt holding it up. Palate is light-medium, dryish, and very tingly on the tongue. Pretty good marzen.

The aroma is malty with a bread element and a subdued hop presence. It’s not complex but effective. The appearance is amber with an average sized head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. This is a great example of an Oktoberfest beer.
