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.

Bottle pours burnt orange-amber with an off-white head. Aroma is somewhat sweet with notes of caramel covered nuts, spiced apple, dates, and a touch of earth. Flavor shows the same with a nice balance between toasted malt and dried fruit sweetness that leads into a lightly earthy finish.

I bought a single bottle of this from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI for $1.79 in Fall 2011. Pours a medium brown color with slight head. Scent is malty with some spices in the mix. Taste has a lot of spices like cinnamon, clove, and other roasted spices. The texture is fantastic with a clean finish that leaves the tasty spices lingering. A great brew!

Hazy amber-red color with foamy white head. Spicy sweet malt aroma. Typical Oktoberfest flavor profile...spicy, malty...notes of caramel and bread dough. Also a tad woody and maybe a hint of vanilla. Medium body. A quality Marzen.

Bottle from Jeffs. Pours a somewhat amber color, aroma and taste of sweet malts. This is ok.

Pint bottle. Clear, reddish-copper with a lasting inch of spongy foam. Spicy dry grass, toasted grain and tart caramel apple on the nose. Taste is caramel on front, with fresh apple showing up later; some toast and then a lightly spicy and tart finish. Near-medium body is sweetish, smoothly carbonated and delicately balanced.

Ruby red appearance, obtained from a beer club, nice malty roasty aroma, very pleasant tasting, crisp, light and dry with a short finish. Nothing special but very drinkable from this local microbrewery. It does not overwhelm the palate. Not bad!

Not a bad Oktoberfest brew. Very nice orange appearance with a malty and sweet taste that finishes clean and smooth. Easy to drink and a decent beer.

Bottle, this Oktoberfest had a clear red pour with some brown hues at the sides of the glass, and made a one to two finger head of off-white/light tan colored bubbles, the effervescence was about medium with a center stream and some bubbles elsewhere, there was some small spots of lacing left behind on the glass, there was a thin film with little spots of sediment on the bottom of the bottle, there were aromas of faint caramel, light bready toasted malt, faint bread and dark fruit alcohol, and some bread/caramel sweetness, there flavors were bread and toasted malt with dark fruit alcohol again, some nut flavor that resembles a brown ale, malt and brown sugar like sweetness, there was a small to less than medium bitterness at the finish, and some drying on the palate after the finish, mouth feel was less than medium, this was an ok drink, I was surprised to notice alcohol and dark fruit in this beer, it was not big but evident, minus the alcohol and this beer would received a better score, not your standard Octoberfest beer, even the label on the neck reads ‘and a slightly fruity fermentation’, did Sprecher brew this Octoberfest with hints of fruit on purpose? I thought Octoberfest beers were lagers? Anyway, the fruit alcohol esters are not real evident.

Draft pours clear bright orange in color with a small white head. The aroma is somewhat standard for the style with Munich malt and slight earthy notes. Caramel and earth on the flavor with a pretty optimal sweetness level and just a touch of hop bitterness. Medium-light bodied with a good medium-plus level of carbonation. Very good for an American example of the style overall.
