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

AshtonMcCobb (5227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep orange amber with a thin head. Nose - light toffee, honey, sweet malt. Taste - light honey, caramel, sweet malt. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid but not like in Munich.

jookos (5507) - FINLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Tap@brewdog hki. Reddish amber, clear. Bit murky old papery malts on nose, autumny leafes, composty, märzeny nose. MEd bodied, smooth, lagery charactery, clean, autumny leafy flavour. Kinda like the flavour after all. The aroma wasn’t that nice, felt old, bit oxidated.Flavours better.

KyotoLefty (9295) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle. Malty nose, caramel, chocolate, toasty and almost roasty. Close to a toasty Vienna. Pretty brown with orange and a low, fine head. Clear. Toasty flavor with some chewy caramel. Strangely toasty. Definitely unique for the style but tasty and very well made. Not traditional.

This is my favorite fest beer, and if you are Jonesing it, the breweries often have it on tap year round. The nose has a hint of caramel and baked bread; the appearance is a nice, thin white head and a light brown hue. Poured nicely from a growler (I think it was only $8). The refreshing taste is very malty with a balanced bite on the end. Perfect brew for the start of fall. Cheers!

ajnepple (5053) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2016
On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear amber appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted grain, light caramel malt, light noble hops and hints of fruit and toffee. Similar flavor, adding mild malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Average body with a creamy feel. Smooth, balanced and easy to drink overall.

cwill (66) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Pours with a frothy head with good retention. Bright amber hue that shows very well to the light. Aromas of doughy bread and herbal hops. Medium body laying down a slick and crisp mouth feel. Toasted malt and soft herbal hop runs across the palate. Chewy with a hit of caramel in the middle. The sweet maltiness with nutty toasted grain dominates this extremely tasty brew. Herbal hops are noticeable with an ample bitterness and long lingering delicious , semi-dry, faint toasted grain finish. My new favorite for the style.

Strykzone (6718) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Mid brown with a beige layer of foam. A holiday spice aroma with some earth and rich malts. Lager yeast. The flavor begins with all of the above. I taste figs and tangerine with bready malts and yeast. Light spices.

Fatehunter (2240) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is lots of grain, hay and earth. Taste has a malty sweet, but balanced bitter. Fresh bread. Texture is thicker.
