COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old time brewers in Germany made a malty, high gravity beer in March (Maerzen) which they consumed with great ceremony in the fall. The coincidence of a royal betrothal in the autumn of 1810 gave Bavarian beer lovers ample justification for the two-week long bash known as Oktoberfest.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 Good maltey beer. Clean. No off notes in aroma. Munich malty flavor. Low hops. Very clear. Enjoyable. Reminded me of some of the best from Munich.

By far the best 'fest beer I have had. A very malty blend that just soothes the soul as well as the palate. This beer lacked the often sloppy sweetness that you find in this style. It had a little sweet but with a purpose. I enjoyed this beer immensely.

Draft at the Leigh Valley Brewfest in Easton, Pa. From the New Hope, Pa location. Hey it’s an Octoberfest Wohoo. What ever. Boring beer. Tasted and looked like just about any othe OFest beer.

HighWine (952) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Amber color with a thin white head. Completely lacking of aroma. Another choppy beer that has flavors but they don’t flow together well. Taste is wet hair, bitter hop oils, and white bread. Moderately thin palate.

On tap at KSBF ’08. Clear amber with a big foamy head. Spicy noble hops were very present in both the nose and flavor. Some bready malt present as well. Decent but a good example why more hops aren’t always needed.

At Triumph in New Hope. Tapped today at 3 pm, and I enjoyed this at around 8 pm. Didn’t meet up to my expectations, but realize that I’ve been waiting for this beer since it was first listed on the fermenting board in early August. Still a very good Oktoberfest

For an Oktoberfest, it was ok. Not as sweet as I was expecting. The carbonation was a little harsh. Could have been better.

Brewed in the USA !!! (KSBF) Pours a lite orange color with a med white head. Aroma of spices , citrus, and malts. Mouthfeel is much of the same with the addition of hops. Pretty good oktoberfest !!!
