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!

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours amber with a white head. Smells of sweet malt and spicy. Tastes dry and bland with some peppery splashes. Disappointing.

Radek Kliber (6324) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: herbal Noble hop , even some Lublin like notes. Good malt aroma. Clean. 7+
Appearance: pours amber with medium light white head. 3-.
Palate / Taste: full bodied. Malty sweet base, crystal like malt feel with gentle bittering. Pleasant bitter-sweet collaboration. Slightly chalky mouthfeel might be bit of annoyance.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, caramel, grain), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Six years later and still no improvement to this recipe (or brewery in general).

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Bottle pours a translucent coppery amber, small frothy head that quickly settles to a minor white film, soft carbonation with spotty lacing.   Aroma is of malts and grains, slightly toasted, maybe a little bit of corn?!?! Flavor is quite malty, er grainy I mean.   Notes of grass (unsweet) and straw.   Medium to thin on the body and mouthfeel.   Finishes malty, slightly sweet.   Flavor was okay, but the aroma just killed it.   Probably one of the least liked Oktoberfest/Marzen beers I've had.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 24, 2008
This reddish amber ale poured with a modest beige head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty aroma that reflects the substantial caramel malt flavor. There is a dry citrus finish.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
9/29/12. On tap at Dahlia’s. Mostly clear amber/orange pour with a small off-white head. HUGE biscuity/toast/cracker aroma and flavor on this puppy - it was almost overwhelming. On top of that there is barely a touch of floral and earthy hops on top of touches of cream and carmel. Eh.

after4ever (5929) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2009
12-oz. Pours a crystal clear dark amber with a loose smudge of gray film on top. Cabbage and smoldering dry leaves on the nose. Watery, fairly flat light body. Toast, leaves, and less cabbage on the mid-palate. Mild doughy finish.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet malts, toast, and lighter earthy hops. Pretty good.
