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.

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.

This was a decent beer. Nothing too special, but much better than some other choices that so many bars tend to carry.

guzzler67 (1502) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Amber appearance with a good sized head and good lacing. Well rounded malty taste that had a bit more fruit than many of the other O'fests I've tried so far. Sweet finish that was a little cloying.(sb)

Had this on tap. Nice reddish-brown color, malty scent, and slightly sweet malt taste. Good enough that I had seconds.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Not bad. Lighter than most Oktoberfests. Many are a medium to dark brown or even a nice cherry stain color, this one was dark tannish-gold with a small white head. Ther was some mild, sweet malt under the herbally hops in the aroma. Tastes a lot like regular Warsteiner except there is a light caramelly malt sweetness added into the mix. This is an extremely drinkable, but seems a little light for style.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
On draught at the German Village Oktoberfest. I guess this is a newer offering from Warsteiner and isn't a terrible attempt. Hazy orange color with a thin light beige head. More hops than malt in the aroma, which is kind of a change in this style for me. Medium-bodied and almost over-carbonated with the hop profile dominating, although the malt begins to assert itself a little more on the backswing. The finish is rather slick. This isn't a great beer by any stretch but it does the job nicely on a cold Oktoberfest evening.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 6, 2003
On draft at the Columbus OH Oktoberfest. This brew poured a small head of finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent light brown colred body. THe mouthfeel was smooth and only slightly bubbly. The malt hop aroma was very average and the malt hop flavor was also mediocre at best.

obxdude10 (2043) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Amber in color, huge bubbly thick head, large malt profile, decent balance, a bit of a hoppy bite in the finish, pretty decent marzen
