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.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at the KSBF ’08. Poured a medium to deeper amberish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of bread, toasted grains, and some caramel. Tastes of the same toastiness, grains, and caramel. Definitely on the sweeter side.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006
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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Pours a medium amber, mostly clear, thin diminishing head to nothing after a while. Aroma is deep sharp caramel malts and toffee with some brown sugar- light herbal hops. Flavor is also deep stewed caramel malts, perhaps lots of dark munich malts, but that rich bready toastiness doesnt come out like Ramstein or Triumph. Ok mouthfeela dn smooth finish. This was right about on par with SA o-fest. Average.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2003
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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Tap @ the Publick House. Poured a clear deep copper color with a thin off-white head. Malty caramel and toasty aroma. Some earthy hop. The flavor is malty with some sweetness. Semi-dry with a mild bitterness and a little spicy. Light-medium body.

beerbill (3450) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2007
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.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 Cask at Chelsea Cask Fest. Man, this was flat out terrible. Something tasted off with the cask, but the cellar man claims it was in perfect condition. So be it. Gummy, fall foliage and euro hops in the nose. Flavor is chalky and muddy but laced with so much diacetyl... my god! I couldn’t finish even a 6oz glass. I’d like to try this one again on tap.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2009
On tap at HDG. Dark gold with a small head and a sweet grain aroma to go with a bit of fresh hops. Flavor is pretty damn tasty and not as sweet as most beers in this style I’ve had. A bit of cut grass makes it pretty drinkable.

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.

Enjoyed on tap at the Publick House in Southampton, NY. For a buck per taster, the 10-sampler platter’s the way to go. Copper-colored with the predictable vienna-flavored malty goodness. True to style.
