It’s our way of honoring our ancestors and the beer they loved to celebrate with. So raise your stein to tradition and enjoy this utterly classic brew.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass; though traditionally Oktoberfest beers are off the tap into a Maßkrug. Amber in color with light head. There seem to be a lot of bubbles. Light aroma. Nothing really distinctive coming through, though I do not expect too much from this style... I still expected something. Taste: Light malt, almost no bitterness or hops favor. Slightly sweet ending. A little too carbonated. Crisp and light. The carbonation drops its drinkability a little. Other than that it is a nice drink, but nothing to search out for.

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, roasted malt, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt.

morrdt (682) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Six pack from the local Harris Teeter supermarket. Pours a golden amber color with a thick off white head. Aroma is lightly malty. Some caramel flavoring to it with a slight dry finish. Needs a bit more malt, but a very good, drinkable beer.

Caramel nose and taste. Not a huge fan of this one. Nowhere near Sam Adams’ Octoberfest.

(Backlog) On tap at Wurstfest in New Braunfels, TX. Somewhat clear, orange in color, with an ok cream colored head. The smell is malts, cereal, blah, and caramel. The taste is malt, caramel, cereal, and ok.
