COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Oktoberfest is brewed with the highest quality German malts, hops and yeast using traditional Bavarian brewing methods. The Munich and Vienna malts are the real stars of this smooth, copper-colored, medium-bodied brew. Well balanced and satisfying, our first lager is the perfect complement to your fall festivities. Prosit!!!!

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours copper with a foamy 2 finger off-white head. Smells bready and a bit herby. Med body. Tis bready. Just a little sweet, but there’s just a little hop to help cover that. Finish is lightly toasted bready maltiness. But it’s verging on dry.

Pours a rich, shiny brown, or copper, with minimal white head. Smells sweet of the malts and is reminiscent of autumn. Tastes sweet, almost like maple syrup but not quite; the Munich and Vienna malts work wonders together. Medium-bodied, with a slightly sticky texture and carbonation that is less than expected from a lager, Real Ale’s Oktoberfest finishes a little sweet and almost dry. I was surprisingly impressed.

Backlog from my SATX trip. Pours clear orange amber. Nose of white pepper and malt. Taste is lightly spiced malts.

Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours orange/dark amber with no head. Aroma is sweet with some caramel and dough notes, I must have gotten a bad bottle because the flavor was skunky with some sweetness, a strong malt presence, and very prickly carbonation.

Courtesy of northernbrews. Bright amber, minimal head. Aroma is dead on, toast, caramel, very faint roast, noble hop background, earthy, well balanced. Malt comes through a bit more in flavor, hop character balances through finish. Medium carbonation. Well done.

Drake (10703) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
12 ounce bottle courtesy of blutt59. Thanks! Pours a clear orange color with a medium frothy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, leafy hops, nutty notes, some lightly toasted grain. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, bitter leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. Petty good marzen.

brokensail (13679) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 25, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color, one could call it copper, I suppose. The head is initially a thin layer of khaki foam, but soon dies down to almost nothing. S: The hops are mildly spicy with some definite earthy notes. A fair amount of lager yeast follows. As the beer comes up to temperature, I get more of the rich bready character and a hint of caramel. T: This one opens up with the dense breadiness I was expecting. Some nice spice flavors to this beer as well, I seem to pick up some nutmeg. The sweetness is moderate with a mild bitterness to compliment it all. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of rolling carbonation. D: A really good beer. Before I knew it my glass was empty and the bottle was gone.

Bottle pour, no head, just a bit bubbly on top. Clear, red-amber in color. Malty aromas with undertones of sweet, stewed fruits. Taste was very simple, well balanced.....not overly sweet, nothing that really stood out. Finished clean, maybe a bit slick, with a little bit of alcohol wash. An easy drinking brew, not too filling, something to bring to your friends house for a Sunday dinner. I liked it, but I think it has more potential....

(12oz bottle best by 12-2-10) clear orange with fine white bubbles. Nose of smooth sweet grains, raw mash, and brown sugar. Taste of raw grain, sweet brown sugar, smooth and drinkable. One of the better Oktoberfests from this year for me.
