Ocktoberfest! I was pleasently surprised at not only the great palate and the flavor but the great sensation the the oktoberfest fills you with, if you want a party then just get a twelve pack of Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2013
On tap in Sacramento at the Golden Bear. There was no head on the pour. The body is clear, dark amber. The aroma is grainy, malt and bread. Simple but nice. The taste is caramel sweetness balanced with moderate bitterness. The texture is crisp with moderate bitterness. An okay oktoberfest beer.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber color with a sticky light caramel colored head. Mild nose. Extraordinarily hopped Oktoberfest. Fruitiness and toffee are there, but it is aggressively hopped.

culchiem (2405) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 3, 2013
Draught at Brew Dock. Clear dark brown with a than head, excellent lacing. Aroma is dark berry. Flavour is creamy burnt malt, vanilla with a mild fruit finish. More like a porter than a Marzen but very drinkable.

Thisis12ptfont (810) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Aroma of deep, dark malts with some maple. Appearance is a dark shade of amber/brown. Comlplex flavor of dark fruits, brown sugar, oak, wood and maple with a intense alcohol filled finish. Overall, this is a fantastically dark and complex Oktoberfest boasting a full bodied, rich flavor. I wouldn’t expect anything less from SN. I’d give this an A rating.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2012
(Bottled, 0.65l, rated 2011-09-22) Clear copper with a small, partly lasting head. Caramely malt and diacetyl in the nose with some berries. Flavor is caramely, with even more berries than in the aroma. Some US hops also found, though I don’t know if those are even used. Medium body, soft CO2. A quite good oktoberfest beer, but not very interesting.

swoopjones (5602) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2011
drfat at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. copper pour, bready malt driven aroma. Flavor follows up aroma correctly. Decent marzen. Never have seen this in the US though, was practically in every bar i went into in Finland

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2011
[keg at North Bar, Leeds] Hazy pale gold in colour, decent amount of carbonation. Quite sweet on the nose – a touch of hay in there. Sweet on the palate too, but it grew on me as it went on. Some decent flavours, I found it quite bready. Enjoyable sweetish lager [05102011]
