COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AUTUMN - Traditionally brewed to celebrate the harvest season, this reddish-brown lager has a rich caramel character and a long flavorful finish. Its delicious malty sweetness is nicely accented by a slightly fruity bouquet and a mild hop flavor.

This was fairly good. Good amounts of caramel in the nose and flavor. Well balanced with malts and sweatness. Thick head and medium thick body.

Sweet caramel aroma. Nice amber colored lager with fluffy head. Rich malty flavor that is oh so smooth. Not quite as sweet as other marzens, which is a good thing. Crisp finish and well balanced. This is a very nice beer,

Draft Looks like there's a lot more variety in Okto beers than any style definition can contain, especially when American brewers are involved. Sprecher offers a nice dark complexion with a good roasty malt character. This, in turn, counterbalances the usual sweetness of an Okto, leading it to a dry finish. Still, the mouthfeel comes in a little thinner than expected, but a good effort.

Seems like a pretty typical Oktoberfest brew with its pronounced malt character. Nothing really special about it, though.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 very nice deep amber color and off white head start off this brew. Aroma is nice as well, with good malt notes and sweetness. Flavor is good, but not great. Nice malt accents and well rounded, but lacks a lot of real character to give it any differing marks from other Oktobers. A good brew, nevertheless.

The Rathskeller Wine & Beer Fest:A medium sized ivory head with small sized bubbles.The body was clear and free of carbonation.The hue was amber and the lacing was good.The nose was moderately malty and it had a malty flavor to it.The mouthfeel was vert smooth, light bodied, and somewhat thin.

This brew poured a medium head of fine to large sized mostly lasting light brown bubbles that left a transparent uncarbonated golden amber colored body behind. It had a very mild malt aroma and a nice lightly bubbly smooth mouthfeel. Its flavor was lightly malted with some caramel notes. The most impresive thing about this brew was its smooth palate.

I still have to say I don't like Oktoberfest's. But I can't quit drinking them!!! Fairly strong caramel flavor and sweeter than most beers. Perfectly medium amber color. Would go great after a fall day of raking the leaves.

Nice amber red with good bubbles. Malt in the aroma and a sweet, malty taste. Lacking enough caramel and toffee for me, and just didn't have that "something" I've found in other Oktoberfests.

Not quite what I was hoping for. Maybe my bottle wasn't as fresh as it ought to have been though - I found it rater metallic tasting with a musty aroma. Beyond that, quite sweet, decently balanced. Below average for the style.
