COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve found the key to what makes Fall so special, and its called Octoberfest. This rich, smooth lager uses a perfect balance of caramel, pale, cara-pils and black malts to create the best Octoberfest beer of the season. Available September through October.

Tap - small foamy head, clear light copper color, nutty malty aroma and flavor, not overly sweet like many Oktoberfest beers (that's good), full bodied, overall pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly underwhelming. I’ll take other Octoberfest beers over this one pretty much any time.

Orange pour from the bottle. Thin dissipating head. Earthy and Carmel aroma. Syrupy palate. Sweet and somewhat malty. Not a fan

TheHOFF43 (1756) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark copper color with no head. Flavor is very smooth and sweet, lots of caramel shines through. Minimal carbonation, very drinkable. A decent Octoberfest beer

Little bit of bread and yeast in the nose. Lighter than many American oktos and darker than the Germans. Bitter. Ok.

Originally reviewed: 10/7/10. Cool bottle received from enelson (BA) in a recent trade. Thanks, Ed! 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear dark amber/orange. An inch and half beige head sits atop. No lace left behind. Basic tones of toasted malts, caramel, bread in the nose. The body was crisp, quasi-dry finish. Nice candied malts in the flavor. Full mouth of toffee goodness. Bitterness was low. I was getting just wisps of banana in the flavor as well. Different. Decent flavor, decent body, quite refreshing for the season. Good beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle from the beer store. Pours light brown with a thin white head. A bit of malt on the nose. Nice amount of effervescence. Sweet malt on the tongue. Clean finisher.

johnnyoski (442) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle. Amber color with an average off white head. Mostly corn aroma. Malty flavor with a bitter, metallic finish. Dry texture with heavy carbonation. Not one I would have again as there are much better seasonal options available.

Enjoyed a large quantity of this in New Ulm, MN recently. A nice Oktoberfest, but not as good as others I have had.
