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

Lubiere (11583) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2007
A hazy lager, with orange amber colour and a light thin off white head. A sweet caramel aroma, with light fruity esters. In mouth, a lightly spiced sweet nutty malt, bready, with faint hopping. A quaffable beer. Bought in the Fall 2006.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse. Orange-amber pour with a one finger head. Low to moderate retention. Grassy, malty aroma.... unpleasant. Sweet grainy taste followed by a toasty and slightly nutty malt finish. Taste is better than the aroma by far, thankfully. Medium body.

BeerandBlues2 (11047) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw, cereal, meal), light hop (herbs), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple and plum. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
This beer rocks. LOTS of rich malt in the nose. The German hops give off a perfume-like aroma. Also detected prunes. Perfect, sparkling amber. Small khaki head with nice lacing. Very malty, slightly sour. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Fizzy. Mohave dry, yet slightly sour in the long finish. Rich Malt lingers on the tongue for quite a while. Worth a try.

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2004
On tap at the 2004 Kennett Square BF. Poured a cloudy, medium amber color with a off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel. Yeast also present in the smell. Thinner body.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark red orange and translucent body with a creamy light orange head. Medium amber malty aroma with a bit of nuttiness. Nutty malty flavor, particularly amber, with a bit of sweet bitterness on the finish. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Good American Oktoberfestbier.

Dogbrick (9996) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On draught at the Mill Hill Saloon in Trenton, NJ: The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing. Light malt and caramel along with hops in the nose. Medium body with a soft mouthfeel. Flavors of toasted malt and caramel, plus mild hops and fruit. The finish is sweet malt and a hint of hops. Slightly above average all around.

Sammy (9972) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
Pours little leasting fizzy head. peach colour. Initially quenching and fruity but soon strong carbonation overwhelms and burns, and sugary sweet finish it doesn’t work for me.

crossovert (9957) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a reddish orange with a fizzy white head. The smell is of oxidized fruits and caramel. The taste is a bit bland, it starts with a mineral water character and moves into a doughy sweetness with a bit of bitterness. This beer hardly excites me, one of the more forgettable Oktoberfest beers. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2010 06:00:47
