(Draft: San Diego Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA) Not themost flavorful Oktoberfest in the world, and the fmalt flavor is too grainy for my tastes, but it’s pleasant and enjoyable enough; Moderately sweet, somewhat bitter on the back end; Medium bodied; The nose is moderately malty, but fairly grainy, with a honey sweetness and a light hoppiness; Light amber in color; Off-white head fades away to nothing quickly, and obviously no lacing is left

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2004
TAP- This poured a golden-brown color with an appreciable white head that subsided, yet laced the glass as I drank. The sweet maltish aroma was a bit heavy for me, and I anticipated a gooey, sticky drink. Actually not bad, a medium body with full caramel malt flavors. Fairly clean finish.

Draft - at an Oktoberfest, which may cause me to artificially inflate the rating. One of the better Oktoberfest beers I’ve had. Nice dark orange color, nice mild hops aroma, sweet malt taste and a clean finish.

I’ve always viewed Warsteiner as a solid beer but with very little character--something to drink and not be sipped contemplatively. This is no different. Darker in color, less hoppy, and more malty than the original. Not bad.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2004
(Draught) Pours a clear golden color with a descent-sized white head. Sweet malt and some hops. Nothing too exciting.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 2, 2004
On tap at the Crescent Moon Ale House. Gold in color with a thick, fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Strong lager yeast aroma. Sweet and yeasty flavors to this lighter malt beer. Mild bittering, but some tartness. Very crisp finish.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2003
A light Oktoberfest, it is more hoppy and fruity than most. Not bad, but not really a shining example of the style.

On tap at the Lime Spider in Akron. Good, smooth taste. Kind of pumpkiny. Went down fast.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2003
This is probably my least favorite style of beer, this was a decent take on it though. A lot of octoberfests have that sweet, syruppy taste. This one was sweet with caramel and nuts, but had a more desirable mouthfeel, crisp and fresh with hop notes throughout.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2003
This was a decent beer. Nothing too special, but much better than some other choices that so many bars tend to carry.
