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!

Fresh, clean and crisp taste, mild aroma and wonderful palette. Perfect with a meal or the launch of the greatest MMO ever made. A must try especially if you’re into lighter ales or planning a gaming night!

Got a sample of this last time I visited the brewery and I was very impressed. Lovely orange/golden color, crisp taste and leaves the palate clean for another try. Very nice. I think this will be a good year for Widmer's Oktfest.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2013
Extremely malty with a fruity and tingly hop bitterness. Interesting alternative to the more traditional Oktoberfest beer.

labattblueleaf (225) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2002
Not a typical Oktoberfest. Tastes rather light and much sweeter when compared to other Oktoberfests. Maybe this is why I like it so much.

Cavie (3804) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Clear orange color. Nice sweet malty aroma. Taste is quite flavorful and sweet. This a very solid marzen. Several elements of tea leaves that sit on the palate. Nice.

Lilja (1690) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, lönnsirap, karamell. Välbalanserad. Oljig och len karaktär. Lagom söt med en fin beska. Riktigt gott.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Maybe I’m not that knowledgable about the style but I thought this was great. Deep amber with a fluffy head. Extremely malty nose with lots of munich. Somewhat sweet with the hop spiciness of noble hops. Very clean and enjoyable.
