I had a pitcher of this at the Irondequoit Octoberfest with my good friend JB (and our wives). Very light amber in color with a small head. Somewhat sweet in flavor with plenty of malts. Suprisingly thin body that was very smooth. It went down fast and on to the next picther. I dreaded those lines to buy tickets then buy beer wuth the tickets. The Octoberfest lost power for acouple hours. It was not bad until it got dark out. Then some well placed trucks headlights and acouple generators helped keep the beer flowing until power was restored.

Draft. Pale orange color. Weak aroma of malt. Tastes of some malt, maybe light hops, maybe honey. No full-bodied malty beer here. Totally disappointing.

On tap at MacGregors. Orange color wth a white head. Very light and weak. Pretty pathetic example of an Oktoberfest.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Just had this on draft at the Germania Oktoberfest, the first of many Oktoberfest festivals in the Cincinnati area. For some reason, Warsteiner brands are increasingly the only draft offerings at most of the local Oktoberfests. Medium orange color, good but too light malt flavor. This is just too lightly flavored. Not tasteless like Warsteiner Dunkel or rancid like Warsteiner "Premium" Verum, but nothing to attract a retry.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [draft at MacGregor’s - Rochester, NY] Deep amber color with a nice tan head. Slightly sweet aroma of malts and a touch of caramel and molasses. The taste is very light, but slightly sweet from the malts and that same hint of caramel. Very smooth.

On tap at the Rose and Raindrop. Nice depth of malts with a touch of fruits in the malt. Pours a very transparent amber with a tall off-white head, very nice for the style. Overall very smooth and clean oktoberfest with a nice touch of fruit in the maltiness.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Overall, I’d have to say that this beer is pretty good, but not great. It is indeed full of flavor, but I had trouble discerning what, exactly, the different flavors were.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2004
on tap @ Ray’s in Kent, OH. Little to no head, sweetish caramel notes, some friut in the nose, thin-medium bodied, slightly dry at the finish. Nothing special.

A bit subdued but elegant in its conspicuousness. A nice, light treat for a dreary Oktober afternoon.
