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

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.

mjs (4742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2014
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BB 11 Jul 2015, at Maltainen Riekko, 20141121) The beer poured brown and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with high carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, sugary sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. A too sweet interpretation of an Oktoberfestbier.

laiti (5900) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here.

stefannilssons (1487) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2014
Det här var en juste öl, för sin stil. Smaken var kraftfull med toner av malt, plommon och torkat gräs, kroppen var okej och balansen likaså men ölen hade en liten fadd känsla, tyvärr.

Orange i fargen med lavt beige skum. Honning, brunt sukker og trevirke. Søtlig og litt syrlig i smaken. Medium kullsyre. Kort

monkeychugg55 (903) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Deep amber with a small white head. The aroma is a strong mix of bread dough and caramel. Clean flavor with a balanced finish that lends a bit of lingering caramel. Somewhat thin for the style.

AndresTM (319) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 30, 2014
Nutty, slightly bready aroma with milld, floral hops and some malted grain. It pours a light mahogany without much of a head. The mouthfeel is more vigorous than the beer visually portends. The taste is gentle, nutty malts and a nice hop bitterness. Nice and sessionable.

Lilja (1714) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, citrus och toner av örter. Lagom sötma, jämn och rund kropp. Fin beska. Ett bra oktoberfestöl.

Very nice Oktoberfest. Sweet caramel and toffee aromas with flavors consisting of dough, spices and more toffee. Medium bodied.
