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.

Pours a nice amber hue, small head. aroma is nutty, and somewhat metallic. Caramel, toffee, and a pleasant malt flavor come through on the palate, There’s a very slight hop presence, which is nice.

Highly recommended, this didn’t have the flavor profile that is prevalent in Oktoberfests. Very grainy without being malty, and not any of the slight spiciness you come to expect from this style. Should be off the shelves by now, which is good!

Really off style. No big biscuity malt notes, not really too crisp. Noted some diacetyl I think, which is just weird for a lager. Get some Hacker-Pschorr OFest instead.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2002
For my 99th beer, I had to go with one of my favorite breweries from one of my favorite towns and one of my favorite styles of beer. Needless to say I was not disappointed. Smooth, with a bit of a fruity taste. Damn good, just like all Sprecher beers!

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2002
Nice lingering aftertaste, with a caramel palate. It’s an average Oktoberfest beer, but I expected a little more from Sprecher.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2002
Deep amber color with a moderate off white head. Floral hops aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavors. Lacks toastiness and dry lager finish. Slight grainy finish.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Color is amber, not dark like the picture. Very floral aroma. Taste is sweet (bubble gum/bananas). There are much better domestic Octoberfests out there.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2001
Admittedly i had this after drinking (too?) many pale ales, but the sweetness caught be a bit off guard. It’s pretty straightforward stuff and pleasant enough, without much of an edge to help it stack up to other fests.

THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2001
One of the best Oktoberfest I have had. Nice and dark, the way I like my beer. Well balanced.
