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

An excellent oktoberfest. One of the best US versions. Almost as good as the German ones.

pretty decent dark oktoberfest. mild aroma, mostly toasted nutty malt and some lager-like yeastiness. nicely malted body, very nutty and toasted bread flavors that make it seem like it was aged in a cedar cask for a while with the distinctive woodiness. very pleasant.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2006 Nice Marzen, an orange/copper body with a dense off-white head. The aroma is a toasty malt, caramel and toffee, with a modest trace of floral hops. Thick and smooth in the mouth, the sweet malts run the show. The hops do make a slight return to balance the whole drink out. Good Stuff.

Pours copper with a two-finger off-white head. Toffee, caramel, and a slight roastiness. In the aroma. Flavor is the same, with a long finish. Excellent Fest

Bottle, poured with an average frothy head, has a clear pleasant copper coloring, a light bready aroma and touchs of sweeter malt on the nose and in taste. Solidly built on the palate & medium of body. Overall smooth, has elements of a silky mouthfeel followed by a nice lighter stickiness. Fair hop finish; subtle. Quite enjoyable.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Light, clear copper body, thin-medium off-white head. Classic toasty, caramely aroma with metallic, earthy hops. The body is heavy on the caramel and brown sugar, the sweetness suggesting underfermentation. This would be tough to drink as a session beer. On the other hand, the nice punch of earthy, slightly metallic hops keeps the sweet biscuity notes in check. Not as layered as the best beers of the style, and just a touch too sweet, but above average.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 25, 2005
12oz. Pours a flat light amber color w/ basically no head. Nose is very light caramel with a light hint of nuts. Taste is flat and smooth, some nut hints, little bit of caramel and malt, and finishes off I guess, has a dry bad nut finish.

Overall a decent Oktoberfest. The malt was a little weak for my tastes in an O-fest, but it was nice and clean as far as yeast flavors go.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Appears a copper toned amber with a decent white head that sticks around. Lots of sticky lacing tries it’s best to cling. Smell is of rich malt, a bit of sweet fruit, a touch of sour bread, along with a mild helping of hops for good measure. Taste is a nice blend of the above making for a nice rendition of the style with just enough difference to make it a Victory beer. Mouthfeel is malty sweet with some sours and bitters and a crispness on the tongue and palate. Pretty enjoyable.
