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 beer pours a rich amber with a thin off white head and a sweet aroma of malts and licorice. The mouthfeel is slightly heavy and bitter. Cheers!

(16oz bottle thanks to blutt59) This one’s a purty copper color. Smells of sweet malt syrup and soda, some maple or maybe sorghum syrup (or cane syrup?) Taste is real sweet, fake maple syrup, earthy bitterness. Eh, kinda like a soda.

16 oz brown twist-off bottle. Different label that the one pictured. It pours a bit more of a reddish brown than most oktoberfests but it looks pretty good. The head is frothy and slightly off-white. It recedes slowly leaving some nice lacing behind as well. This one isn’t one of the better smelling Oktoberfests however. It smells alot like the Samuel Adams Octoberfest. It is just sort of airy metallic nuttiness. It smells very sweet. The taste is better, although there is some metallic flavor that eventually fades but is somewhat annoying. It is a sweet, robust oktoberfest. It says it is brewed with fresh hops, so maybe that is why im not getting any bitterness what so ever. The hop profile is pretty good though, I like the Tettnanger and it is used properly but I would have liked it to have a slight bitterness to cut the sweetness.l. It is a one-dimensional if somewhat tasty oktoberfest. It is too sweet for the style but still decent in my opinion. It is a middle of the road oktoberfest that is probably not worth the time or money. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-30-2010 04:45:23

Kind of boring for an Oktoberfest. Reminds me of a Spaten with a bit of Primator dopplebock. Should be a little lighter, too syrupy. Well rounded example otherwise.

Really weird, tastes more like a caramel inflected brown ale, nothing at all like an Octoberfest. If I got a bad batch, fine, but if not, then this is not an Octoberfest.

(16oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear medium amber with a ring of tan fine bubbles. Nose of caramel, sweet malt, brown sugar and yam. Taste of dry grain, sweet yam, cream, with a dry finish.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of baked apple, caramel, mustiness, and nuts. Flavor of caramel malt, nuts, raisins, and toffee.
