COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Expertly brewed by the award-winning Master Brewers of The Lion Brewery, it boasts a brilliant reddish-brown color and full-body for the true beer drinker. In using a blend of Munich, Vienna and Aromatic malts, Stegmaier Oktoberfest possesses a light-toasted character with a touch of sweetness. The addition of German hops adds a perfect balance of flavor, which will be enjoyed by the most sophisticated palate.

DiarmaidBHK (3527) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle from vintage estate. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. Hints of toffee, caramel, and butter on the nose. The diacetyl is prominent on the tongue but fades as the beer warms. Unfortunately not much flavor replaces it. Finishes clean. It could be a really solid beer without all of the butter.

Pretty solid fest beer. Malty aromas. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malt flavors which linger on the palate. Overall a pretty solid fest.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel and butterscotch. The flavor was sweetish and tangy toasty caramel, butterscotch and moderate vague fruity hops. There was a faintly vegetal undertone. The finish was long. Fairly full bodied. Ok.

obguthr (4072) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Tart aroma of vinegar and chemicals, acetone. Clear auburn, thin yellow head. Somewhat tart malt, cherries, slightly chemical. Vanilla finish. Not a very good maerzen, poorly executed.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 25, 2011
Nice light brown/amber color. A bit of caramel malts and some spicy hops in the aroma. Medium body. Flavor has nice toasted caramel malts, biscuit, earthy hops, and a bit of spice. Decent fest beer.

After reading the latest comments, it appears that the brewery got this year’s batch right. Nice aroma and great taste. Not extremely hoppy or bitter. A little kick as well (ABV - 6.1%). But since it’s a local brew for me and a case price that’s right ($21), I might be a little biased. I’d suggest everyone try this year’s batch again.

Pours brown. Aroma is roasty, malty anda hint of caramel. Taste is a muted sweetness, a litter bitter on the finish. Much better then the ratings would suggest.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Poured a clear, pale copper color with no head to speak of, just some white bubbles. The aroma was medicinal and malty. The flavor was astringent, cut by some light roasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Thin body. Harshly carbonated. Not good.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Jungle Jim’s tasted on September 14, 2010. Clear medium orange/amber color, sweet aroma with troubling overtones of chemicals and cheap pale lager-type graininess, sweet toasted malt flavor battles with chemical elements and comes up somewhat short. Disappointing, especially in light of my enjoyment of Stegmaier Bock and Stegmaier Porter.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of diacetyl, slight malts, slight nuts, and slight caramel. Poured orange/amber in color with a small to medium-sized, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of diacetyl, light malts, light caramel, and slight hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Diacetyl and slight malt finish.
