Pours with a nice white head on a copper body. The aroma is fabulous, with sweet floral smells and a hint of spices reminiscent of nutmeg. The head leaves a light lace on the glass. The flavor is very rewarding. Sweetness balanced wonderfully by hop bitterness. This is my favorite O'fest by far.

egajdzis (5509) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Sampled at the Ludwig's Garten Oktoberfest party. Poured a brownish red color with a small head. Had a strong diactyl aroma and the taste was that of caramel, diactyl and a signature lager. This was pretty decent.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 On draft. Pours a beautiful dark copper/amber with medium white head. Aroma is surprisingly fragrant with pear and apple tones. Smells delicious. Flavor is same with addition of nicely balanced malt and a very smooth finish. Creamy on the palate. I had no idea Oktoberfest beer could be so tasty. Perhaps I need to try others as well.

Shag (2656) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2003 Good malty and floral aroma. Amber colored with nice lacing. Complex flavor that is slightly bitter but mostly malty. Creamy mouthfeel. I am enjoying this alot more than I expected. Fantastic!

ElGaucho (2282) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 10/9/07-Re-rate. Malty aroma. Malty, doughy flavor. Typical o’fest. Fully eroding head. Label says produced on 07.06. From a discussion forum I read on BA, it appears this is in fact July 2006. So it’s over 1 year old. Sure enough, I bought it the 3rd week of Sept, so early in the season. Taste is fine, but there is literally no head. Drives me nuts distributors/brewers wont take back their old stock. It’s the brewers who end up looking bad. I guess I have to do a better job of checking the labels. 9/18/03- Good, sweet malty aroma. Amber in color with a thin white head and no lace. Malty. Does not have much bite. Very drinkable and could pound a couple masses of the stuff in a sitting. Pretty solid. No flaws, just not spectacular.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours pure clear amber, with a large tan head that mostly diminishes and leaves little lace. Aroma of caramel and toasted grains. Flavor starts sweet with caramel, some hints of toasted bread, and a bit of smoke squeezing in at the end. Medium body, super easy to drink - a truly great fest beer.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours a semi dark amber. The head about 1/2 inch and disappears in about 2 minutes. Not much lace that is sustained on the sides. Smells malty and a bit hoppy. Tastes malty with a dry finish. Not bad, but I've had better.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2003
(draught)Very dark amber nice malt aromas with matching warm malt flavors. Slightly sweet, easy on the hops as expected. Very good O-fest

mribm (458) - Ocala, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2003
This beer had the typical maltiness of an Oktoberfest beer, however it had a weird aftertaste. It almost tastes like burnt (not smoked) malt. I know this probably won't be a popular thing to say, however I liked the Sam Adams Octoberfest better

Very fragrant, strong malt carmel taste, nice if its bought for you, but not worth extra expense.
