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.

Bottle. Pours a copper with a reddish hue and a thin head. Aromas are apple juice and malt, but pretty blah. Flavor is sweet and pretty blah.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Transfering from notes. Bottle. Amber pour with a nice big off white head. Aroma is of sweet malt and light hops. Flavor is pretty balanced with sweetness and bitterness. But something about it didnt sit right with me.

Maybe I had a rancid batch,but this stuff was not that impressive. Tasted kind of aged,and not very enjoyable on the tongue.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, amber body with a small, white, bubbly head. Smell: Caramel malts with a touch of toasted grain and fruit and several pats of butter. Oh, who am I kidding, you get an entire stick of the stuff. Taste: Toasty caramel maltiness with a medium sweetness. Diacetyl. Slight fruitiness in the form of Red Delicious apples. More diacetyl. Light spicy hops and bitterness. Like a cruel phantom that butter taste comes and goes but you can never ever quite be rid of it. Grainy, caramel-laden, butter churn finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Whew. This one certainly wasn’t shy about the diacetyl which, if you can deal with, then you may be able to choke it down. Otherwise, it calls for a drain pour and a tall glass of water to rinse your mouth out.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2008
From a brown 12oz bottle - Pours a clear light reddish/pale color with almost no head and well below average carbonation. Smells of floral hops and very light sweet malts. First sip is sweet and perfumy like with a very light malt backbone. Very light bodied, lightly hopped. Somewhat under carbonated. Not worthy of consumption.

Bottle: Probably the worst Oktoberfest beers I’ve ever had. A drain pour for sure.

Bottle. Aroma of sweet, toasted caramel malt. Flavor starts off quite sweet, but becomes more quaffable over time. Meh.
