COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

Malty - bread like aroma. Small, quickly dimishing, fizzy, off-white head. Light, orange - almost copper colored appearance. Moderate, sweet flavor with a litle bit of fruity hoppiness to it. Good, full body.

Not my favorite style but this is one of the better ones, smooth and sweet.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2003 I think this is my favorite Oktoberfest. Appropriately sweet and a little grassy. Smoooth mouthfeel.

Yum. Exquisitely smooth. Very good oktoberfest, but I prefer the Paulaner.

Mild malt aroma, Malty fruity sweet flavor. Faint aftertaste of grape Kool-aid.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 Good Octoberfest. It did not disapoint. I was given another one from JB on 10/16/06. Still very good.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Amber gold color witha thick creamy head and good amount of lace. slightly sour malt aroma with hoppy undertones. strong malt flavor with a sweet malty finish

heykevin (1274) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Amber? barely dark gold. Slightly skunky aroma. Thinnish sweet malt flavor (corn-y?). Not thick enough in mouthfeel for an octoberfest. This is a pretty poor example of an octoberfest.

Braudog (5625) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Good malty aroma and creamy head that sticks to the glass. The flavor was too creamy; I’d like to try this in Germany ... wonder if the import version varies. Good, overall, but not the best of the O-fests.
