I have no October Fests to compare this to, but I rather enjoyed the smooth palateble flavor of this beer. It lacks a little bit of potent kick or bite, but it has a decent head, and a good crisp flavor that can be repeated in one sitting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Poured a deep amber color that was topped by a thin head and had a little lacing left behind. The aroma was slightly bitter and hoppy. The flavor was slightly sweet and well balanced leaning slightly toward hoppy. This beer was light bodied and relativaly smooth. A decent oktoberfest.

Thin body, light malt flavors, decent head. Slight metallic taste detracts but this is definitely an easy drinking marzen. Not as good as the best Germans, but pretty good.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this beer on 10/17/2001. Aroma is metallic with light malt scents. Color is a rich amber with good carbonation and nice head. Taste is malty and mild. Starting with a medium body that goes down with a mellow crisp feel. Finish comes on with a slightly sharp feel and a mild malt flavor, followed by a very light bitterness. Overall its not a stand out brew, but it is very drinkable.

Rated 12/30/05: Definately my favorite of the Pete’s Wicked brews. Great flavor with an even better aftertaste. I have had better octoberfest beers but this one is high up on my list. Just as good if not better than the major imports and it will save you a couple of bucks as well, thank you Pete!

Pours amber with a decent sized white head. Aroma of sweet malts, toffee, and nuts. Flavor is smooth, malty, thin , with a dry finish, not a good oktoberfest, but an ok brew. Boring and forgettable.
