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

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Pours a clear orangey bronze color with tin 1/4 inch head that quickly disappears. The very thin ring that’s left behind leaves only minimal lacing. Smell; nice bread dough and caramel maltiness with a mild herbal almost spicy aroma. Nice, but not as good as I was expecting. Taste; pretty much follows it’s aroma. It has a solid caramel malt presence, and a little bit of the spiciness makes an appearance. There’s also a slight hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation. This is not the best O-fest by any means, but it’s still a decent stab at the style.

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.

Pours Amber with an off white head. Aromas of spice with a hint of orange. Flavors of malt and subtle spice.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours clear amber body with medium bubbly off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Light bitter malt, metallic flavor and smooth, thin, watery palate. Not real impressive.

Sweet aroma with distinct cola nose accenting cereal malt base flavors and robust German hop flavor charge. Bitter enough to counterbalance slight sweetness, though still very clean flavor. I also get touches of cherry and smoke (not muddled as from yeast, but flavor notes from specialty grain I’d guess). It is large and festive, pushing the style. Hard to rate appearance, since I drank from bottle during World Series Game 1.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Slightly red-tinged amber, big white head that diminishes fairly quickly, and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is very light, some maltiness but not much else. Flavor is also fairly light, some caramel and other malt sweetness, and maybe a minimal hop hit at the end. Body is medium at best, mild carbonation, drinks easily, but is noting spectacular.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
(sample @ brewery) orange amber color, very clear, with a long-lasting if small head. nose is primarily sweet and malty, with a mild toast underneath. flavor is malty and sweet, and rather heavy. beer is definately balanced toward the malt, and though not that heavy a body, still somewhat cloying.
