Beerdedone (3372) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours hazy amber color with a white head, aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and hops. Flavor is malty, sweet, citrus, and spice. Not my favorite Oktoberfest, but good.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Bottle Pours a caramel tan with a off-white head. The aroma is of bready malts with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is very clean. The malts of course come through strongly, but are not overbearing. Just a hint of spiciness, but not much. A very mellow Oktoberfest.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2006
On tap @ WL Beford Hts., 16 oz tapered mug: Very cloudy light amber w/ a lasting, well lacing, off white head. Aromas of bready malts, raisiny fruits from mix of malts and fermentation, clean of other off aromas. Well balanced overall, clean, lightly sweet finish, with toasty malt flavor throughout lasting into the aftertaste. Low carbonation level, smooth medium body. Not my favorite O fest, but likeable enough!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours a somewhat light copper with a big, rocky, offwhite head. The aroma is grainy with some lemon and cookiedough. It has a deeply grainy flavor with quite a bit of caramel, some hints of orange, and after a while a molasses-like sweetness. It’s mostly kind of sweet, but the finish has some woody and smoky tones. Not bad.

Drjohnrock (761) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 500 ML bottle from Cork ’N Bottle. Cloudy orange color, sweet malty aroma, good head retention with minimal lacing, good toasted malt flavor with some complexity and banana and yeasty notes. At first it tastes like an attempt to cross a hefeweizen with a marzen but the fruit-like components of the taste diminish as the glass warms. Nice brew.

thoramel (55) - Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Not a big lager fan and even less of an octoberfest fan but tried this beer because a friend raved about it. And I must say, its pretty good. big foamy head and a dark gold color. A fruity aroma pleasently presents itself. the taste is somewhat like a wheat beer and a dopplebock with a yeasty finish. Agood beer from a great brewery.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Pours clear, brown, witha large, fluffy head. Aroma is sweet, grassy, and malty. Moderate mouth feel with a sweet, malty, grassy flavor. Clean, sweet aftertaste follows.

Derek881 (1269) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2007
I liked this beer, but I was surprised to see how highly it is rated. The aroma was not too strong, some caramel maltyness, and a good bit of earthy and floral hops. It had a clear, amber-oragne color, with a medium-sized, creamy white head. The flavor was somewhat bitter and fruity, with some sweetness for balance. Pretty creamy and smooth on the palate, with some fizzyness; a good mouthfeel. Overall I thought it was a good beer, just not as good as some competing types.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Huge, very sparkly/bubbly head... pours a clear dark yellow color. Very malty and floral aroma. Very smooth beer, dry, malty taste. A little bit of citrus. Not my favorite Oktoberfest/Marzen... but a good one nonetheless. 1 pt .9 oz. bottle.
