COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

Above average Oktoberfest but a tad thin and lacking in depth of flavor. There are many better both foreign and domestic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, eh not too impressed. Amber color, funky aroma. Malt flavor, with some spice to it. Not much of a finish. Forgettable.

Aroma is yeast, fruit, bread and malts. The flavor is fruit/berries, malts, slick texture and a tart finish.

radio_nowhere (795) - Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle into pint glass, clear amber color with white head. Aroma of caramel malt sweetness, some nuttiness and a slight earthy note to it. Taste adds some breadiness, light spices and grass. Light body, low carbonation, clean with a dry finish. Pretty solid.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a big off white head. Aroma is not good. Weird undertone of rotting produce with some peanut and spice. Peanut and spice come to the front in the taste. Nice prickly palate that disappears quickly. Can't get past the smell.

pilgrimoutlaw (766) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Pours amber with thick white head. Caramel, nut, dough, pie spices. Light bitterness. Moderate sweetness. Medium smooth body with light crispness.

theisti (3215) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2013
12 oz bottle purchased at the Total Wine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The pour is clear copper golden with a well formed ½ inch light tan head. The aroma is caramel sweet cereal grain along with a touch of grass. The taste is the sweet malt caramel upfront, turning to grain, then finishing with a dry lightly bitter earthy grass. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and the dry finish. Really easy drinking, great version of the style.

ellolovey (453) - Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweet fruits, bread, and roasted malts. Has a nice balance between sweet malts and bitter hops. A dry smooth finish. Not too bad.

jsmerig (1233) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Pours a clear reddish brown. Aroma is bready and syrupy. Taste is malty with roasted notes and a bitter yeasty finish with slightly sour overtones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Clear copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is near pine and some doughy bread character. Very mild spice. Lighter body.
