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.

Tmoney99 (10444) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with a cigar.

hopscotch (8841) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle... Hazy, dark amber lager with orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Good, tight retention. Malty, vinous nose of dried plum, caramel, fig and tawny port. Each sip presents gobs of caramel, light molasses and all kinds of dark fruit. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with soft carbonation. Sweet, sticky finish.

Sammy (8382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2006
Better than average Octoberfest, with significant smokey aroma, flavoiur, and even a grey tinge to the colour of yellow, and decent lacing. Easy drinking and well carbonated with good malting, caramel there, and some hop.And a fruity aftertaste. Once a year however.

Dogbrick (7627) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Shocking that it has taken me this long to try a Sprecher beer. This seasonal pours a dark copper color with a medium light tan head that diminishes pretty quickly. Stringy lacing. Caramel malt aroma with touches of fruit and hops. Medium-bodied and smooth with roasted malt, caramel and plum flavors. Touches of mildly bitter hops are there as well. The finish is short and sweet with a caramel aftertaste. Overall this is an above average Oktoberfest.

shrubber85 (7306) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Strong malt aroma with maple syrup notes. Dark reddish amber color. Maple syrup and malt flavor. Smooth drinking. A very nice Oktoberfest beer with a bit of an American twist.

Nice lingering aftertaste, with a caramel palate. It’s an average Oktoberfest beer, but I expected a little more from Sprecher.

Ughsmash (7097) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2007
16 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange with an inch worth of creamy beige head... stuck around for a while. Nose was quite sweet and remniscent of autumn.. leaves falling off the trees, toasted caramel candy, and dry fruity yeast notes.. enjoyable. Flavor began with mild leafy and herbal bitterness, transitioning to a sweet toasted caramel and nutty base... some fruit and caramel through the finish. Just shy of medium-bodied with an OK balance between the mild bitterness and sweet middle. This was a decent, drinkable brew.
