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

Poured a deep ambery copper color with very little head. The aroma was full of caramel with a very subtle roasted malt. Medium body with a light carbonation was very well balanced with just enough hop bite to keep it crisp and very refreshing. All around a very clean and drinkable beer.

The aroma is very much right for the style with maybe a bit more hops than expected. There is paper, toffee, a touch of grass and toasted bread. The appearance is amber with a clumpy head. The taste is like the aroma but has an astringent quality. The palate is typical for the style. Overall it fits the style pretty good but not a great beer.

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2012
No readable bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a clear reddish amber with light amounts of carbonation in the body, the head is thin and light tan with average retention, it’s just a light coating on top now.
Aroma: Fruity esters are prominent upon swirling, with a light floral backing, not much malt presence.
Taste: Light malt sweetness throughout, some light toasted malts, mild hop presence, and light fruity esters. This is very mild and balanced.
Palate: Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation.
Overall: This is a solid Oktoberfest, one of the better American ones more similar to authentic German ones like Ayinger.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours a near clear amber with beautiful tan head. Looks great. Caramel and vienna malt character through and through. No real hops. Reminds me so much of a decent vienna lager. Grainy and malty.

A good, malty, Octoberfest beer. Fairly typical of the style, but good quality nonetheless.

jbruner (2137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pours a clear golden yellow with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of german yeast and hops, with sweet malty backend. Taste follows, easy drinker and solid marzen.

puboflyons (2048) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 29, 2012
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours an above medium amber with a cloud and no head. The aroma is malty and nutty with a slight floral hop playing around in the background. The body is medium. The taste is quite sweet and malty with a slightly lingering finish. Smooth and basically drinkable.

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Spice, cherry and bread on the nose. Taste has a nice bread cracker like finish w/some fruitiness. Super clean and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very clear amber. No head? Almond and banana nose. The body and carbonation of a boutique soft-drink. A notable sour-apple tang and a hint of bitter celery. Super smooth, the most interesting of its style in recent memory.

A great Oktoberfest that has grown on me. Nice full bodied amber poured into a mug with medium but frothy head. Subtle nice balance of flavors with caramel and bready feel. Finish is great with great balance of malt and bitter that lingers nicely...I hope I can find some more before the end of the season ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
