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.

One of the better Octoberfest beers I've had. Sweet malty and a touch of bubblegum. Nice fall spices. Good beer.

asedzie (610) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper with slowly diminishing beige head. Nose is mild - as is typical of the style. Some light caramel, mild fruitiness. Flavor is full and rich - toasted bread, rich candy-like caramel (but not too sweet), some salt and mineral flavors suggesting well-controlled water PH and good lagering, and ending in a thirst quencing mildly herbal bittersweet hoppiness. Great for a US marzen.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a nice copper color with off-white head. Caramel and roasted malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with malts. Nice.

Bottle, pours amber with a white head, sweet taste with caramel, malt, and yeast, light hop finish, slightly above average Oktoberfest

Nothing really eccentric here, but its a solid offering from a mid-range brewery. Malty sweetness is highlighted. Caramel and bread.

Pour from a 12 oz glass. Malty and pleasant easy to drink. Not much going on here. Ok.

PintPiner (22) - Maple Grove, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Malty aroma. Thin head with very little lacing. Clear bronze color. Low carbonation with light body & mouthfeel and a sweet malty flavor w subtle hints of caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
