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.

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

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2006 Draft in Princeton. Nice amber appearance with a thick tan head. Retention was short. Aroma had a good maltiness. Citrus, courant, caramel were the main flavors. Fine, but a little watery and bitter at times. Re-rate- Better this year. The Munich and Vienna malts worked well together. Caramel and dark fruits were there as well. Malty as an Oktoberfest should be. 7/3/7/3/16 (10/7/06)

Draft at new hope. Clear amber pour with little head. Nice layers aroma with a faint banana note. Taste is crisp and standard. Not bad.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
On tap at KSBF 08- Good clear amber with a decent foam head. Hops and a grain malt body. There was a slight spicy hop bitterness that was a little bit off for me. Otherwise good beer.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Lots of good Munich malt character, a little on the sweet side, could use a little aging, and maybe be fermented out a little more

Draft at Sippin by the River ’05. These guys make a lot of good an interesting beers. The octoberfest is true to the style: big malt, clean fermentation, fresh.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Notes from Oct Copper pour with no head to speak of. Light toasty malt/caramel aromas, hops muted. Very light in body almost to a fault, but flavor brings the score up a bit. Rounded well with hop bitterness about midway through, finishes bitter with a wisp of citrus rind

jcalbi (378) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2002
Clean copper color with a consistent 1/8" thick sandy colored head. Aromatic hints of chocolate and candy sugar ,though not oppresively so. Somewhat smokey and toasted mouthfeel with flavors of chocolate and caramel and a slight hop bitterness. An O’fest that left me pining for more.
