A Bavarian-style Oktoberfest bier brewed with the finest Bavarian malted barley, aromatic German noble hops and traditional yeast brewed in strict accordance with the German bier purity law of 1516, the Reinheitsgebot. This rich malty lager is one of the few that remain true to the tradition of fest beers originally brewed to honor the marriage of Prince Ludwig in 1810. We hope you enjoy this fall offering. Es is nicht normal. Prosit."

Color is a slightly hazy dark golden with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Bready, earthy nose. Nice medium mouthfeel and body. A little hop bite at the front that smooths out quickly. Flavors of sweetish caramel malts come through. Easy drinker and, in my opinion, a more enjoyable brew than some actual German Oktoberfests.

Bottle, thanks to J! Pours nice clear amber. Aroma: toasty, well-lagered - clean and crisp in the aroma. Some sweet caramel, stone fruit. Really nice. Taste: moderate sweetness, light bitterness in the finish, short crisp finish. Light body, average carbonation, crisp texture. Overall: not usually a style I'm crazy about, but this is really well executed and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1102) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Pour from a 22 oz bomber. Cloudy amber brew with rich thich head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, green fruit. Taste is rather plain - a little sweet caramel at the start followed by a bit of green fruit and just enough bittering in the finish to offset the sweetness. Overall OK but rather lackluster.

boxofrane (1881) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with some light coming through and nearly no head to speak of. The aroma almost has an apple characteristic to it, maybe a bit of caramel, light floral presence. The taste is sweet malty, a bit of apple comes through again, not much hop to it but it is easy to drink. Would prefer it less sweet but this is ok in the style.
