COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktoberfest Autumn Ale is our version of the perennial favorite Bavarian Autumn beer. Oktoberfest’s deep golden hue matches the fall foliage here in Vermont. Brewed with Hallertauer and Tettnang hops to balance its clean, malty sweetness, it’s the perfect brew for a crisp Autumn day. Available from September to November.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange copper color with a small head. Nose is sweet and brings fall to the mind with light honey. Palate is flat with a light stickiness. Flavors of honey, syrups stickiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jkwood04 (4422) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 31, 2012
12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pale and light caramel malts plus a little bit off hops. Flavor tastes a little off. Average texture. A decent beer but not the best.

McGarnigle (573) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
This is a pretty typical American Oktoberfest. Malty but perhaps too much caramel for the style, light German hops. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either.

This beer has a great taste with no aftertaste. Slightly sweet with an under tone of hops. Great aroma and clean finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
