Bottled. A hazy orange-red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruit - especially peaches, as well as notes of malt and berries. the flavor is sweet with notes of dusty German hops combined with light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry and slightly bitter finish. OK, but nothing special. Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, malty nose. Medium body with lightly sweet malts and a somewhat biscuity touch. The finish is dry. Somewhat close to a Heller Bock. 171107 Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2008
Draught at GABF 2008. Clear amber - white head. Citric, light malty, sweetness, pilsner malty, knækbrød, grainy, crispy, toasted. Boring. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 11, 2005
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, evokes hefeweizen -- banana and wheat, with light spice, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, banana, some caramel, light spice, earthy. Light-medium body. Not bad, but not what I would call a traditional oktoberfest beer.

The final Oktoberfest I will down this season.
Pours the classic amber color.
Smell is a bit sweeter than most but hops are also present.
Taste has a nice hoppiness to it, along with nutty, sweet malts.
Overall it is another solid Oktoberfest Beer, somewhere in the middle of the pack.

Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear bright orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and slight hops. Light-bodied with a strong malty character and notes of hops and fruit in the background. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with an average-sized white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and cinnamon. Malty flaovr with some spices. BVery (10716) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Clear lighter amber pour. Nose is caramel. Not very carbonated. Taste is caramel, malt, and kind of flat. Okay at best. JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Small yellowish head over clear pale-amber beer. Extremely fruity nose, rosehipsjam, caramelmalts in force. Bready, but with a leafy, near-bitterish tang, that is very welcome, relieving the more classical sweet, malty, caramel-fruity notes. Retronasal again rosehipsjam. Bit spritzy MF, slick, but not much body. Not bad, even when, considering this an Oktoberfestbeer, I’d hate to have to drink liters of this. Thanks, DA!
