5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Bottle: Translucent amber, orange biased, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing, soft carbonation.   Soft malt nose, subtle graininess, touch of sweet biscuit.   Sweet malt immediately up front, smooth, malty finish.   Fairly clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   As it warms a slight hop tinge appears at the finish.   Easy drinking, fairly sweet, malty Oktoberfest.   Thanks Eric!

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2005
On tap at Firkin’s, Libertyville, IL. Clear dark amber hued having a large diminishing white head with good lacing. Light spicy sweet malt aroma. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied that starts and finishes with hoppy, slight sweet malt flavor with hint of honey flavor. Similar to Paulaner Oktoberfest, but more flavorful. A good drinkable Oktoberfest beer.

Summit oktoberfest is not a real filling beer. It has a sweeter taste that I would descride as reliable. I think that no matter when you have this beer it has a decent taste. I think that this beer would appeal to most beer drinkers.

muzzlehatch (4747) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2005
12 oz bottle. Very clear orange-copper, smallish quick-dissipating white head...malty, light toasted bread accented nose offers just a touch of woodiness for interest....alcohol is a bit too prominent in the body, which is somewhat fruity (cherry, baked apple) caramel-malty, with a weird sprig of mintiness towards the end...the high ABV seems to lead to a slight metallic touch at the finish, and a bit of syrupiness...not terrible, but a pass.

MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2005
UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 i will name this one the minnesota vikings... pleasant on appearance but full of disappointment. finishes ugly and bitter, can’t wait til 6-pack is done. this oktoberfest will get one of the first draft picks next year!

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2005
amber copper color with minimal head...aroma of caramel, roasted malts, and sweet sugary malts...flavor is the same with a heavy emphasis on the roasted sugars and toffee...okay palate

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Pours a copper color with little head, even when poured semi-aggressively. Aroma is of caramel malt and a bit of a fruity note. Moderately carbonated with a dry and grainy taste in the finish. Gobs of caramel and a touch of tart cherry emerges in the flavor. Slight alcohol warmth. Excellent example of the style.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Thanks to Robert’s Reality for this. Deep copper pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some bread and fruit. Tastes bready malty, with some dry caramel, hops, and fruit. Medium palate and semi-dry in the mouth all the way through.

pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 11, 2005
On Tap at Spike’s Sports bar & Grill in Minneapolis. It pours a clear goldish-amber with a minimal light-brown yellow head. Aromas and tastes of sweet silage and grass clippings. The carbonation is about average. There is a slight bitter aftertaste (I would prefer more) and the feel is thin and drinkable. Missing something for an Oktoberfest, even Sam Adams has this one beat.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2005
The color of a shiny new penny, the modestly bubbling body could only support a one-fingered head, and that only for a short while. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, tobacco, and a powdery floral hopping. Quite creamy. The flavor is all sweet malts with just a hint of nutty bitterness. Having a honey sweet finish, this is a decent Märzen. The stronger ABV is certainly well hidden.
