500ml bottle from CBC. Pours medium amber with a big off white head. Aroma is banana, grass, honey, fruity esters. Flavor is clean, simple, caramel, fruity esters, moderate grassy and floral hop. Good balance, a perfect fest beer. It would be easy to tip back a lot of this.

After one of these it is hard to convince myself that there might be another Oktoberfest worth trying. Every Fall the search is resumed, but nothing else compares. Great malt aroma, incredible balance, not cloying, great mouth feel. not to be missed.

MNAle (147) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Clear golden amber, lightly carbonated. Tall off-white creamy, thick head that recedes moderately with thick lacing that falls just above the head. Prominent malty aroma, dark fruit, raisins, bread, sweet, figs. Taste follows the aroma, dark fruits, bread, not too sweet. Complex flavor. Good mouth feel, not too thin. There is a lot to like with this beer. Little bittering anywhere, not even in the finish, which sets it very much apart from most American so-called Oktoberfest beers. Soft and dry finish. Excellent. It stands up to its reputation as one of the best in the world of this style. A very easy drinking beer for a night at the festival.

Decent Oktoberfest beer. Tastes more mild than I prefer but certainly better than many competitors.

[email protected] Bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust, lågt skum. Brödig, lätt degig doft. Matchen mellan sötma och beska slutar ovgjort. En oktoberöl i harmoni.

This is the best Oktoberfest I've ever had. It is sweet but and caramely with a touch of nuttiness. It has a bit the "European" flavor but still tastes fresh (not skunky). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at growler guys meridian. Pours out a crisp clear golden topped with a white head. Nose is nice rich malts corn spice and a light grassy hop. Taste is more of the nice malts caramel nutty wood notes and a little grassy end.

From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of toast. Flavors of bread and toffee. Smooth clean finish. Fantastic for the style.
