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.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft pint at the Philadelphia brewpub. Reddish amber with a thin gluey head. Classical middle-of-the-road caramel malt. Medium hop tingle. Nicely balanced, but just an average O-fest. (#3183, 11/8/2007)

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 !!!

HighWine (951) - 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.

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
On draft at the Newtown Brewfest with Stegosaurus and The Mad Indian. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, hops, and citrus. The flavor is caramel, slightly spiced, and finishes mildly bitter.

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.

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

On tap at the New Hope location:

The Lure:
Grapefruit and peach pits stick to the caramel malts. Fresh fruity pulp is present, but nothing special to distract you from daydreaming.

The Festivities:
Light peachiness accompanies the nameless hop presence. Well-made malt structure doesn’t yield much to talk about in this easy to down pint.

Transcendence:
The football game is on I think.

Sampled with Stegosaurus and beerded_one at Newtown brewfest. Weak body and taste for an octoberfest. I was dissapointed.
