Pours a beautifully clear light amber with golden highlights, a thick cap of light tan foam that is densely formed. Some sulfur in the nose along with toast, slightly sweet, and slightly bready. No distinguishable hop presence. Tastes like a decent marzen beer, there’s a bit of fruity esters from the yeast and some malt esters as well. Nutty, toasty. Dark fruit comes in at the end of the taste. Not as richly malty as most import Oktoberfests and it really treads closer to Vienna Lager in terms of malt-body. Bitterness is unspecific but smooth. Overall a drinkable Marzen beer that lacks the extra oomph that would separate it from the pack.

Bottle. Clear medium amber, malty caramel, moderately hoppy finish. Nice for a session.

On tap at Pyramid Alehouse, Seattle... Boring taste... Everything, but not an Oktoberfest beer...

12oz bottle to mini-dimple. Deep brown-amber. Huge pillowy white head that keeps coming. Mild aroma with a little bitter bite. Bready and malty with a little sweetness.

Aroma is spices and a hint of vegetables. The flavor is malts and a mix of spices/vegetables all the way into the finish.

Elwood (2962) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy brownish amber with a thick head of light tan foam. The nose has some toasted malt and light leafy hop notes. The flavor has a brash up front bitterness that seems at odds with the the toasted malt and a light caramel notes. High carbonation and a long bitter finish seem to make this brew rough around the edges. Certainly not the best Oktoberfest I’ve had.

crhensel (133) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured a deep copper with a very thin off-white head. Nose was very malty with a ht of spice, mainly a little nutmeg and clove. Taste was overall a little bitter with the spice playing in toward the end. Not a bad, but not a remarkable beer either.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Amber body with a rocky and foamy beige top. Lightly sweet nose, soft with crystal and vienna grains and a trace of corn. Slippery smooth with a pleasant amber malt grain base and a gentle toastiness. Quite even-tempered and balanced. A fine seasonal Oktoberfest. Flavorful and in the easy drinking tradition.

12 oz. bottle- Pours cloudy autumn orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is light caramel malt, more hops in here than I was expecting, it smells like fresh cut grass. The taste is that signature Oktoberfest malty dry taste, smooth, caramel malts. I am actually impressed with this one, I was kind of putting it off assuming it was going to be a sub standard boring beer from Pyramid, but this is a good interpretation I think.
