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

hopscotch (9103) - Indian River County, 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.

adnielsen (9013) - 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.

hopdog (8867) - 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.

Sammy (8552) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
12 oz bottle. Deep orange colour, crystal clear with no head at all. Lovely deep rich maltiness. Munich malt and some decocted malitness are on display. Flavour shows a kiss of floral hops, lingering light breadiness. Not a lot of complexity, but this is all about being easy to drink… something it accomplishes well.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 21, 2009
On tap at Quarry House Tavern. Pours a clear, reddish amber with a thin, beige head that quickly disappears. No lacing. Caramel malt, Worcestershire sauce, and earthy grain aroma. Taste is simple caramel malt with some good, basic balancing hops. Very basic, rich lager.

Drake (8339) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Tap at Victory, Downington PA - 25/05/12. Dark amber with white head. Sweetish malts at the fore of the nose, backed up by a little hops and straw. Taste follows nose with a little fruit and a puff of smoke in the mix. Medium bodied decent representation of the style.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Clear copper colored body with almost no head formation at all. Smells of sticky, sweet maple and sweet white corn, with a heavily sweet caramel and caramel corn note as well. Some faint cherry wood also shows up at times. Low carbonation, slick and oily, with flavors of semi-sweet maple malt and light plum and cedar. Medium dryness in the finish. Ok to below average.

Dogbrick (7959) - 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.
