COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full bodied, malty, slightly sweet beer celebrating the Autumn harvest. This rich beer has a round malt flavor and an above average alcohol content perfect for a cool fall evening. Saint Arnold Oktoberfest is best consumed at 40° Fahrenheit.

Thanks to bu11zeye for the trade. This beer is a clear dark amber color with a thin eggshell white head. Thin lacing too. The aroma is malty sweet. Medium-bodied with a kind of fuzzy mouthfeel. Very, very sweet flavor of malt and little else aside from a bit of caramel. Very one-dimensional, which is saying something for a Marzen. The finish is sweet and bready. Not terrible but definitely too one-sided.

Hmmm. Certainly doesn’t taste like 6% abv, to its credit, but on the whole this was very unimpressive. The aroma is highly subdued, even in terms of the malts one would expect. The flavor is not "clean"--the word that came to mind was "murky". Some caramel and some bitterness, but otherwise a mish-mash of vegetal, bread, toast, and caramel flavors, with a moderate palate not unlike some very mediocre beers. Good head on a standard amber/brown body.

Bottle Pours a medium dark copper color, with a prety good off white head. This settles quite quickly to a maintained white ring which produces fair lacing. Aromas are kind of bland, only a woody toasted malt rising up to tickle the ole’ factory. Smells a bit sweet too I suppose. Flavors are mainly earthy and woody. Actuually makes me think of piles of orange and brown maple leaves. Feel is fairly lively and a bit thin. Otherwise plain simple and straight forward. Finish is woddy and no real hop bitters. Thanks again to Kaggie97

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, straw, and musty leaves. Flavor has ice tea qualities.

Brownish copper color with very little head. Malty nose with the same taste and added caramel. Sweet too. Not bad.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Poured brownish amber with thin off white head...smelled malty with definate caramel and citrus...tasted overly sweet and just a little syrupy like caramel...maybe a little apricot...finish is cloying...
