noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Aroma: Rich malt aroma. Appearance: Clear amber-orange, two fingers of off-white head leave significant lacing. Flavor: First sip is deliciously malty, vanilla, wort, raisins. But my tongue quickly became attenuated to this, and most of the beer tasted of biscuit and hay. Palate: Somewhat soft on the carbonation; moments of caramelly thickness.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Beer flows to the glass a great orange amber color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is light but has a faint spice nose as well as a bitter malt hint. Flavor is a very good bread maltyness with a little apple acidic taste and an earthy and slightly coffee bitter end. This is a very unique oktoberfest and another great beer from Great Lakes.

foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 On tap. Pours a vibrant orange amber with a small head. Nice malt profile with subtle hops. This is another very drinkable brew from Great Lakes.

blipp (8618) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours orange amber with an off white head. Sweet malt aroma with caramel and hops. The flavor is sweet, with toasty malt and grassy hops. Very good, probably my favorite of the style so far.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug. Appearance: The body has a deep orange amber color with very good clarity. Its head builds up thick and creamy. It’s just off white in color and slowly fades to a thinner covering. Smell: The aroma has nice spicy and earthy hops with a wonderful sweet malty character. Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor has a deep malty base with light toasty bready notes and nice caramel sweetness. Balance comes from spicy, herbal and earthy hops. The texture is smooth and easy drinking with modest carbonation and a good solid medium to full body. Notes: Absolutely wonderful balance of flavor, body and drinkability.

jbuzz (820) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Oktoberfest tasting Three Cellars Milwaukee. Not very festive. Very basicc and uninspired. Low on malts and flavor.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle, I think thanks to cpferris. Ruby amber pour with a little off-white head. Aroma is sweet grainy / bready malt with light toasting. Flavor is the same, sweet grainy malt, lightly fruity, and some bready malt in the finish. Pretty decent for the style.

kassner (1605) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2008
bottle from 3 Sons, deep amber, no head, some lacing but taste wise dissappointing, earthy, and maybe some strange hop effort but no clear Malts

Aurelius (5178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Medium light clear copper. Strawberry and butter aroma - super fruity. Tangy, strawberry-apricot esters over a woody, malt-bisucity backbone. Starchy, crisp mouthfeel with a lingering toasty aftertaste. Faintly sweet sometimes, and aspirin bitter at others. Light caramel as it warms. This Oktoberfest won in a back-to-back with Flying Dog Dogtoberfest.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2008
12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with little head. Full malty aroma with a bit of fruitiness. But overall I’d like it to have more of a presence. I think this is one of the more unique octoberfests I’ve had. There is a light malty sweetness with some fruit mixed in (Like apple and orange), and a touch of earthy hops. I really like this. Very solid. Medium body with kind of a round mouth feel. A good choice for fall this year.
