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.

jason (1676) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Draft in New Hope. Not a bad beer by any standards but I think most brewers try to copy somebody else’s Oktoberfests because this tastes like everyone elses Oktoberfest. Decent aroma and body but a little odd mouthfeel. Pretty smooth.

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt, dates, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with medium hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

On draft at the Newtown Brewfest with Beerded_one and the Mad Indian. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops, and citrus. The flavor is caramel, slightly sweet, with a mildly bitter finish. Thin body, good brew.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2005
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.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Clear medium amber, small white cover. Strikingly grainy nose, remotely bready and toasty as well, but the graininess does not have the usual freshness I associate with vienna malts and thus contrasts more than complement the rather hoppy nature, mostly focusing on bitterness than finishing aromas. Unusual..

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
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.

dmac (3892) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Growler from the Princeton location shared at Moosetoberfest. Pours adeep reddish/brown with an average sized fizzy light beige head. Aroma of grains, bread, citrus and slight spice. Very bubbly and lively carbonation over a medium body and a very creamy finish. Flavor of brown crusty bread, grains, spice, and slight citrus. Not bad but far to creamy on the finish.
