Pours a very cleaer reddish rusty brown. Little head even with an aggressive pour. Aroma is of sweet malt with caramel and nothing else my dull nose could pick up. Tastes very smooth with caramel, toffee, and strange as it seems butterscotch. I thought I was crazy for picking that up but it looks like I’m not alone. Very sweet and very smooth but not much else going on here. Seems like it’s lacking something. Carbonation IMHO was fine.

Brilliant, magnifying clarity. Lucid orange in color with a creamy, dense and tan foamy head. Aroma is true to style, with caramel, butterscotch, Werthers Originals, corn husks, potatoes and corn flakes. Flavor gently glides in, distinguishing itself as one of the sweeter and less spicy renditions. Sweet caramel, cedar and Smart Start cereal flavor dimensions. Butterscotch, buttered toffee and a slight copper kettle twang, but not overly ambitious. Creamy and smooth on the palate but not much personality. Absence of noble hops and lacking carbonation. Finish has some vanilla and maple similarities. Decent.

Sampled from the tap at Tyranena and brought home a growler. Tyranena’s Oktoberfest was different than others, a good thing. Nutty and rather fruity aroma and flavor. A touch sweet. A good change, a good Oktoberfest.

Sampled on tap at Tyranena on 9/10/05. This beer pours to a nice amber body with a white head. Decent thickness and spotty lacing. The aroma is kind of a nutty hoppiness. Light sourness. Quite different from most other oktoberfests. Smooth malts, clean body. The flavor almost comes off as a wheat with a roasted hazelnuts and nice Vienna-like malt. This okfest is pretty non-traditional. I like it. Strangely, it seems out of style, kind of bordering on Saison. And, yet, it’s still fest-like. Strange. I like this a lot. Perhaps this year’s batch is much better than 04?

Sour, clovey aroma. Big foamy head, color is brown. Light bodied with a nutty and bitter palate. Some off bitterness and metallic tastes creep in though.

Slightly cloudy amber body with a soapy white head. Nutty, dry caramel aroma with lightly citrus and grassy hops. Similarly "light" flavor - roasty caramel sweetness along with muted grassy, mossy, peppery hops. A well-done beer and I appreciate the extra dose of hops.

Thanks to JCapriotti. Nice amber with plumes of carbonation and two fingers of creamy head. Malty aroma largely consisting of carmel malts with a slight off aroma that I couldn’t place. It’s nutty and smooth with some fairly nice ballancing hop bitterness at first. Later a strange bitterness lingers and makes the finish of this medium bodied beer somewhat harsh.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Clear amber body, average sized off-white frothy head that doesn’t stick around long. A bit of a pilsnery hop aroma with a sweet bread backing. Sweet, but balanced with light hops and easy going taste. A little dry in the finish. Nice hoppy burp.

From a bottle--pours a medium amber-orange with initially large, white head that disappears quickly. Crystal clear. Abundant malt in the nose. Sweet initial taste. In fact, it’s sweet all the way through with very little bitterness in evidence. Smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. A solid, easy-drinking Oktoberfest.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2004
Appearance: clear, light orangey color, with a full, fluffy, froth atop that subtly settles down to size. Aroma: sweetness and malt are king in this arena, some fruit, some herbal/vegetal qualities, too, all around, it’s a complex, terribly interestesting affair, no one-trick pony at all. Mmmm, juuust right. Taste: why don’t we? Ahhh! That’s the stuff! A solid delivery of tasty malt, just the tiniest support from hops, and a never-quitting phalanx of flavors that deploys again and again upon the palate. Rich and, yes, delicious, this is one damned tasty Oktoberfest! How could it be otherwise, it’s Tyranena! Move to Wisconsin, beer lovers! These guys are good! I’m going to have put a polka record on the turntable and oom, pa-pa-pa to this beautiful beer.
