COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Loosen your lederhosen. Our full-bodied OKTO Festival Ale is inspired by Bavarian Oktoberfest, and we pay fitting tribute with its distinctive malt flavors, mild floral character and crisp clean finish. Prost! To the land of the Prost!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with one finger light tan head and ok lacing. Nose is sweet malt and yeast. Taste is sweet malt, toffee and some fruitiness in the finish with a very minor hop taste. Medium mouth feel. Meh, pretty boring.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2008
(Draft @ Gingerman, HOU): Pours an amber brown, body somewhat opaque. Big creamy light tan head. Good lacing. Grape juice aroma, some maltiness. Somewhat malty taste, almost sour aftertaste. Some grapey foretaste. Some balance, but more on the malty side. Pretty good session beer.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Slightly hoppy version of the ever-popular Oktoberfest! This one was very crisp and pretty malty. I wouldn’t say it was thin, but it was thinner than most of the genre. Light and carmelly.

mmmbeer (1240) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2008
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured transparent dull copper with amber undertones, low carbonation, nice one finger bubbly off peach head formed and laced to a degree. Aroma of carmel, wheat, and malt. Hits the mouth with a low-medium body, malt is a little lackluster- tastes like an old malt was used, touch of cream and sweetness in the middle, finish is crisp with a few noticeable hop notes. It gets the job done for something to drink, but I can think of many better ambers and oktoberfest beers that are in the same price point and are much better in quality.

I admit my ignorance of German styles. To me a full amber with a sweet yeast.

Nice caramel aroma. Tasted pretty good. Malty. I wouldnt mind having this again. Widmer is usually a good price around the bars too.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2008
bottle thanks to swalden_28. poured a tea color with beige head. aroma of caramel and seemed to be some orange. flavor was caramel and spice, just wish there was more of it. this was kinda tastey though.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Pours with a small, off-white head that goes leaving behind a cleear orange body. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and a bit of champagne like spritz. Taste is hard to find (not much of it) but there is some caramel and diacetyl. Light bubbles.

BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle. Rich amber colour, medium body, very carbonated. a bit of a watery finish. Not spectacular, but above average and enjoyable.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle from Market Street in Allen, TX. Pours a very nice looking clear amber-orange with nice beige head, some lacing. Not much aroma here, but there are nice notes of malt & yeast. Flavor is semi-sweet malt with a nice spice, balanced. Mouth feel is medium body with high carbonation. Over all, I really like this one, so far it is my favorite from Widmer. Good stuff!
