Pours a golden color with a tinge of orange and a big fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and doughy. Definately has a strong biscuit scent like others have mentioned. Flavor is also very biscuit like, loads of sweet honey like malts with just enough hops on the finish, but could maybe use a tiny bit more. Not a bad beer but I find the overabundant maltiness to make this one a bit dry for may taste.

500 ml bottle. Golden amber was a little hazier than I had expected. Nice big head that stayed around. Aromas were the expected malts with vanilla and some caramel. Bready too. Some smokiness on the flavor that was pretty nice. Other roasted malts in there...more bread, not a lot of hop bite, but enough to give it a slightly bitter aftertaste. Pretty good for a syle i’m not a huge fan of...

Pours to a orangey body with a white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is honey and nice toasty malts. The flavor is floral hops, honey malts, toasted malts. The palate is dry and lingeringly bitter.

Had this beer on 10/15/1998. Color is orange with ok carbonation and head. Aroma is thick and rich. Taste is a lot like most October Fests. Body is medium / heavy and goes down thick. Finish is a sweet malt flavor.

I have been on drinking some fest biers lately, and alot of them are starting to blend in and bore me. This one, however, did not. Amber gold color. Nice toasty malt aroma. Flavor is more toasted malts, nice and sweet with a little nuttiness as well. Finishes with a nice crisp zest. Good stuff.

Bottle @ House of Brews, NYC. Pours a deep orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma is grain with a nice malt characteristic as well. Taste is grain and bread notes in the fore with malt flavors coming out in the end. Not as sweet as the Hacker-Pschorr, but definitely representative of the crisp refreshing Oktoberfest style.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle from BottleTrek.com. Orange in color with big head. Slight sweet and floral aroma. Sweet malty flavor with citrus and spice in the background. Medium to light mouthfeel, loads of carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish. One of the better German Oktoberfest.
