Pours translucent dark orange with quickly fading pale head. Faintly sweet and malty nose. Similar taste with a nutty finish. Good carbonation and a bit of a lingering bitterness and warmth. Octoberfests are hardly my favorite, but this seems like a decent representation. Only complaint is that its a little too sweet.

This was a pretty terrible beer. Not too much sweet flavor, almost tasted old and stale. Unenjoyable, it is a shame we bought a case.

12 ounce bottle from Bella Vino in Athens, OH. 4400th rating! Pours a clear golden-copper color with a large tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and bitter hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, bitter hops, some faint banana-like fruits. Thin-medium bodied.

Rather typical looking oktoberfest with a bright orange and golden color with a white head atop the beer. Sweet malts and a slitght cereal grain quality in the nose that traslates to the palate as well. Sweet malts and a slight cereal grain in the finish with a hint of crisp hops. Not bad.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Bottle. Aroma has notes of caramel and cereal malts. Nuts and some bread as well. Medium amber hue with an average foamy white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet. Palate is medium bodied and oily soft. Overall a pleasant malty brew.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Sample at Winking Lizard. The beer is a clear golden-orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and caramel plus a touch of hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, mild hops and a touch of yeast. The finish is short and sweet with a malty aftertaste. Pretty straightforward Oktoberfest beer overall.

With fall coming, on tap at buckeye beer engine, it’s a nice amber color with a super malty bready presence.. Not bad but not my favorite definitely needs to be colder to enjoy

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2011
bottle - Pours clear orange with a one finger head. It has a mild toasted caramel malt aroma. The flavor is just sweet, lightly toasted caramel malt, maybe a little bready taste, and not much else. It’s decent for what it is, but I was a bit underwhelmed.

Ron (2441) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Poured a clear amber in color with a big off-white head. Malty aroma that is very clean with some crisp hops. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a crisp and dry finish.
