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!

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.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 12 oz bottle. Small beige.head, Beer pours a clear reddish amber color. Not much aroma, perhaps some mild apple smell. Well carbonated. Light to medium body. Well balanced with caramel maltiness. Finish is a bit cola-ish with some mild hoppiness. Refreshing hot summer day type of brew. Pretty good. 10/10/2009 rerate-orig was 7/3/7/3/14- 12 OZ BOTTLE, JUST BOTTLED 5.5 WEEKS AGO, Sept 1, 2009. Pours a clear copper with a medium sized beige head. Nose is mild and all malts. Taste is caramel, nuts, biscuits with some very subtle mild hoppiness in the finish that does keep this from being sweet. If ever a beer was balanced this is it. Not real sweet like Sam Adams Octoberfest, although they each have their time, place, mood. Anyways this is easy to drink, sessionable and a nice Oktoberfest, even if it is an ale.

jinroh (1102) - ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2013
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget @ Stockholm. Pours reddish amber with a small head. Sweet caramel aroma, a bit fruity with some bitter hints. Taste is quite light, slightly bitter. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel, short aftertaste. OK beer and quite sessionable - but not spectacular.

Thisis12ptfont (1099) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Fresh hop flavor on the nose. Deep amber color with nice lacing against the glass. Hoppy flavor with some caramel, oat and wheat undertones. Full bodied with a well done complexity. Overall, this is a nice, full flavored Oktoberfest brew with lots of hops. I’d give this a B+ rating.

Hazy amber orange; no lacing. Musky yeast aromas. Bread, dry earth and yeast flavors with a nice, clean finish. Pretty sokid oktoberfest.

vikingguy (1050) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Copper with small tan head. Spicy malt aroma. Taste is spicy, malty, woodsy, caramelly and toasty. A classic Oktoberfest taste. Some decent bitterness on the back end. Medium body. Can’t say anything bad about it at all. A solid Marzen and definitely one I’d buy again.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Sugary sweet nose with malt notes. Carmel, toast, biscuit. Clear amber with no head, good carbonation. Almost undrinkably sweet. Good malt depth and spice notes but so off-balance that it’s lost. It might just be the sweetness, but something makes this immensely unpleasant.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2007
9-23-07. Hazy amber brown with great foamy head. Slightly medicinal aroma, but mostly malty and calm and not overdone. A bit of a doughy taste - slightly bland. Palate is very carbonated and slightly watery. I can drink this and it isn’t awful but it isn’t anything special.

bkurtz (1039) - MOROCCO - JAN 29, 2012
Poured clear amber with a smallish white head. Sweet malts then some interesting, but not always balanced hops. I like this kind of beer, but nothing special.

(Bottle). A somewhat watery Oktoberfest. The malt is somewhat tart and not as sweet as optimal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
