3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

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.
