COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our seasonal version of classic Octoberfest Lager. A deep bronze color and a smooth, malty flavor make this brew a true favorite year after year.

On tap at SPH during their Octoberfest party 9/28/2007. Arrived at the table a clear amber with a thin off-white head that faded to a film after two sips. Light aroma of malt. The flavor is light sweet malt with a bit of hops bitterness at the finish. Not as malty as I would expect for the style and a bit less full-bodied as well.

I got this on tap at Shoreline in LI. $2 for a 12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a dissipating off white head. Aroma is malty caramel and a touch of spicyness. This is finally an Oktoberfest with some decent bitterness. Most others are overly malt in my opinion. (I know that’s the style) Malty, bready, (rye bread), hint of pepperyness and a bitterish light dry finish. Not bad.

Tap at SPH. Sweet malty aroma, caramel and toast over a grainy and somewhat industrial malt backbone. Light amber colour. Some light earthy/herbal hops. As with all of the beer at the pub, it improves once it starts to warm up. Flavour is okay with light toasted malt and some earthy bitterness. Lacks the sweetness and complexity of better examples.

I am not a big Octoberfest fan but this is rather nice. Tap at the Publick house. clear orange body with visible carbonation. Cann see through it. Small head turns into nice lacing. Aroma is very present - a spiced lager aroma. I also get a slight toasty flavor in the aroma. Rather sweet as well.

Very nice Octoberfest - smooth and just the perfect hint of sweetness to it. Beautiful pumpkin color, and aroma of vanilla and caramel. Not too malty.

This is an outstanding octoberfest - very rich, huge malt character, almost bock-ish - subtle fruitiness, I swear I can taste strawberries in this one - long, lingering sweetness on the palate - southampton has made me love a beer in a style I don't care for that much, which is quite hard to do.
