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.

Not much on the aroma, but it looks lovely, white head, caramel color, with nice lacing. Good balanced flavors, and a nice kick. Hope to someday make it to Munich for Oktoberfest and get it at the Brauhaus.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 Fresh off the truck today. Creamy white head. Light amber in color. Malty up front. The beer finishes with a little bit of alcohol and spicy german hops. A good intro beer for a novice.

Dark amber color with a light cream colored head. Slight malt and floral aroma. Nutty dry malt flavors. Dryer finish. While oktoberfest have fund there way on the shelves year around I always looked forward to these fall offerings.

Had to re-rate this when I found myself rating Sam Adams higher, because this is definitely better than Sam’s. Sort of thin, and one dimensional, however the sweet malt in the middle is enjoyable.

I think I got a skunked version. I see myself liking this beer if it were a little fresher. Poured beautiful and maintained a healthy head.

Average Oktoberfest. Pretty amber color and a little fruity.

Palate like hard sour-dough pretzels, light on the hops... Ein mehr Stein, Bitte!!

Potent, but with a smooth body that makes the liters go down easily. Not sweet with a one dimentional caramel flavor like some, but toasty malt dominates. It is like drinking an artisan bread, the flavor of the best grain.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2003 This is a great Octoberfest. Delicious, malty aroma and flavor. Lightly hopped. One of my favorite German beers.

You won’t be disappointed in the flavor of this beer. My tastings have been from a bottle, I would love to find this served from a tap...
