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 from Capone’s. Deep coppery pour with ruby edges and minimal off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, mild brown sugar, toffee, and some offy notes. Tastes of heavy caramel malt, with slight brown sugar, nut, and dark fruit notes, but the flavor profile and mouthfeel remains rather uninteresting and blase. Not horrible, but not a repeater for me.

Good clear copper, large off-white head. Looks fine. Nose of floral hops. Taste of floral hops, a little sweet malt, but not much intensity of flavor, slight bitter finish, and the usual marzen nuttiness is barely present. Thin in the mouth, consistent with the lack of intensity of flavor and lack of complexity. Sort of the high end of drain pour ... but I still tossed it. Why waste the calories on this sorry specimen?

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2006
I was actually hoping this would at least be decent since thier porter was pretty good. Pours a clear light amber with a white head and high carbonation. Aroma of light DMS, some crackery malts, and slight caramel sweetness. No real bready or thick full toasted malts, just plain malts and a light crisp bitterness. Weak body and mouthfeel. ech.

Orange/amber, with a white head. Aromas are grain, malt, and sugar. Flavors are sugar, malt, grain, and some fruit and hops as well. Much better than I expected from Stegmaier, but not exactly a prototypical Octoberfest.

I give Lion Brewery much credit for brewing a regional Oktoberfest. Medium bodied malts, amber Marzen with light sweetness and lighter bitterness.

A friend gave me a two bottles to try. The beer was malty and flavorful. It had a nice dark appearance with a good head.

Pours a nice mahogany color with a tan head which leaves no lacing and does not have very good retention. The flavor is of mainly caramel malts with a little bit of spice, very little hop profile. The mouth feel is a little water. This is not a bad beer for $20 a case and would make a nice session beer.
