Dark copper color with a white foamy head. A full flavor of sweet fruity esters. The body is full and well-rounded, with a nice mellow finish. My favorite Octoberfest ... one of best things about fall in the Twin Cities.

Summit does a consistently respectable job with capturing German authenticity. Their Oktoberfest is no different. Copper color. Malty aromas redolent of dark bread. Caramel and toast notes. Minimal hop character. Rich and smooth. Finish is quick and clean. Pretty tasty.

12 oz. bottle from a friend’s house. Pours a mostly clear orange with a small off-white head and some visible carbonation bubbles. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, spiced cracker, faint fruit, sugars, straw, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Well-executed Oktoberfest.
