A very nice crisp Oktoberfest style beer. Not as sweet as other Oktoberfests and is very smooth and drinkable. This is turning into a daily drinker while it is still available. Aroma is good caramel and aged - caramel finish that is neither too sweet nor too bitter.

Overall smells pretty clean and bready with only a hint of nuttiness and maybe a touch of caramel. Flavor is what you would expect from the nose. A very clean, crisp beer with a mild roasty and nutty character and just the tiniest bit of caramel sweetness. Extremely drinkable.

A really great beer. It really hit the palate during the Oktoberfest tour. I would have it again if offered

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 Comes out of the tap a clear dark golden amber with a fine-bubbled pale beige head. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity and slightly hoppy. Strong, malty flavor has undertones of apple and pear and a hint of hops. Smooth, fizzy, lively texture leaves behind a nice tingle.

First time I had this was at a oktoberfest celebration in nj outside in the rain poured from the tap of a beer truck. I only recall such detail if the beer was amazing.

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

Awesome substitute for Beck’s. Beck’s is good but this is pretty darn tasty.

On draft at Elephant & Castle, pours a medium orange with a hint of brown, and a nice white head. Aroma is light, autumn, with a hint of bread. Flavor is nice, light, good, and oktobery.

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.
