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!

Rune (11355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011
One-third pint, gravicask at USA Cask Ale Bar, GBBF’11. Amber-dark brown to look at, dotted spots at the glass. Rather inviting smell of dark sweet malts. Dried fruits mixed with sweet caramel in flavour, notes of butter. Malty endnotes. OK, if not a bit unusual for an Octoberfest bier (London, 04.08.2011).

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Orangish/amber pour. Small head. Toffee, caramel, bread and some grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is malty and a tad sweet and the hops offset the sweetness nicely. Pretty ok for the style.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Drank this baby at about 2 AM on Friday, September 1st. Steady 60 mph wind and rain pounding the front of the beach house. Sliding glass door is bulging, but not breaking... and I’m drinking... a clear copper lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Lots of sticky, melted caramel in the aroma. Caramely, malty-sweet flavor. Medium-bodied and milky with modest carbonation. Malty, gummy finish. Yum! Thanks kenb!

djd07 (10522) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color wtih a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is sweet fruit with raisin and light hops. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet roasted malt with caramel and a spicy finish. A good amber ale from Widmer.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up @ Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a dark rust orange appearance with an off white head. Caramel, toasted malty, slightly floral, herbal hoppy aroma. A little chewy malty, light bubblegum, a bit zesty yeasty, caramel flavor. Pretty decent beer.
