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 (12237) - 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 (10215) - 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 (9826) - 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 (9824) - 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.

crossovert (9748) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
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

DSG (8665) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep reddish amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, nutty notes, light vegetal hints and a touch of noble hops. Sweetish chewy malt flavor with caramel, decent toastiness and a mildly bitter herbal hops finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad.
