Pours a clear, copper-golden color with a large light tan head. Some carbonation bubbles migrate from the bottom. Sorghum and Christmas pull candy on the nose. Puffy mouthfeel with a slight burn on the rear of the palate. The bitterness profile cuts the sweetness expected from the aroma. It imparts a fruitiness where the sweet pull candy and sorghum would’ve otherwise dominated. KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Nathaniel’s. Pretty amber-orange, clear, fine thick head. Nutty, malty nose, light caramel, earthy hops, light peach and orange. Sweet fruity, nutty, malty, some raisins. A bit old, perhaps. Tasty, rich, fruity, and malty. Good, but did not move me as I was hoping it would. I really need to try this fresh in Germany on tap.

Slightly oversweet fest beer with a sturdy maltiness and little in the way of hops. Smooth drinking but a little short on flavor. Sarpa (1571) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015

Pours clear deep amberish golden with a big frothy bubbly offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and floral with sweet dark bread, caramel, toffee, banana bread, hay, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and slightly floral. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with sweet bread, caramel, cookie dough, hay, dried flowers, minerals and lemon peal. Highly balanced pleasant maltdriven lager. Full flavoured yet highly quaffable. kevinsenn (2215) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle from LCBO. Aroma of bready malts and noble hops. Bready caramel taste with a little bit of cherry notes. Flat body. BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
500ml bottle ’Kirtabier’ from beers of Europe. Poured carefully into an old Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall, handled glass tankard at home on 10th Jan 2016. Slight haze to the dark, dull orange coloured body: on top a full and deep foam blanket. Light malty nose and flavour, semi-sweet with a mini bittering finish. Decent enough, it’s a long time since I had an Oktoberfest bier. I must try to find them more often when they are available/around. DuffLover (127) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Decent Oktoberfest beer. Tastes more mild than I prefer but certainly better than many competitors. ciocanelu (2534) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 12, 2016
Hazy amber color with white head. Aroma has some caramel, slight sourdough and bread crust. Taste starts with intense bread crust, slightly sweet and malty but finishes with a nice, earthy bitterness. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Although I don’t like the style too much, this one is quite good.
