UPDATED: FEB 24, 2006 On tap: Quite good. It was a deep brownish, redish, color. Had a malty, nutty, sweet aroma. The taste was quite good with malts, nuts, caramel, spicey (nutmeg, cinamon, clove, etc.), citrus/green apple and on and on. Lots of flavors playing around in the mouth, very good indeed. mreusch (858) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Tap @ FS. Pours a light amber with a moderate tan head, good lacing. Gentle aroma of caramel, nuts, bread,and light spice. Flavor is caramel nut, slightly bready, lightly spiced; malty and a touch sweet. Gentle and mild, very sessionable. A very tasty Octoberfest and nice way to celebrate the season. theisti (4237) - Kansas, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Growler courtesy of beastiefan2k. Pour is golden orange, with only a slight haze. Pours with some settling, building up a 1 1/2 inch off white head. Aroma of fresh malted cereal malt, slightly sweet grain and hay grassiness. Really fresh nose. Taste is the cereal grain malt, with the sweetness and the hay more in the finish. As with the nose, taste is fresh and clean. Palate is medium, thin and quite drinkable. Clean and crisp finish. None of the cloying sweetness that some Oktoberfest seem to have. This is not an overly complex beer, but is really solidly built and quaffable. Certainly my favorite of the style I have had so far. Thanks for hauling this to me Eugene. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2013

The aroma is sweet caramel-like malt, understated hop spiciness, fall leaves - just smells like fall. Great amber color with lots of bubbles rising to the top but a small amount of white foam. Great looking beer. Taste is refreshing, just hoppy enough with malt sweetness taking over at the end. This is what an Oktoberfest should taste like. It’s an understated style; a lot of brewers try to do too much with it. Palate is not as fizzy as the appearance, slick and smooth. This has replaced Shiner Oktoberfest as my new favorite. Now I need to get my hands on some Ayinger . . .
