Poured without much of a head, medium carbonation. Head did not stick around very long. Color is a nice amber/orange color. Taste is good, taste of caramel, nuts, malt and hop. Is a decent taste. Finish is the catch here with this one, was slightly metallic and bitter. I guess I was just expecting more from this beer. The finish was the killer for me. Not a bad beer by any means, but just rather ordinary.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Bottle. Light sweet/sticky bready/doughy malt notes. Lightly grassy finish. Nice lightly herbal notes, with some mild bitterness to offset the sweetness. Nice.

light brown color rocky white head. Very light aroma slightly sweet hardly there. Palate is carbonated and well coated. Some light bitter grass and a nice carmel malt flavor w/ hints of honey and citrus. Ok stuff.

This was actually pretty good, although it was on the light side. Pours a bright light orange with a nice head and good lace. Aroma is bready with malt, some sweet and caramel, and light nutty malt. Flavor is on the light side but very balanced. Good amount of light munich malts and some breaty hints with light hop bitterness. Really nice oktoberfest.

Had on tap. Really good oktoberfest- probably one of my favorites in the style- Nice color and good head. All around good taste, and nice aftertaste.

Bottle at St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Attractive burnished bronze colour. I found this to be drier and less malty than the norm for this style and, consequently, relatively crisp and easy drinking. I’m not really a big fan of heavily malty lagers, so I actually enjoyed this more than I would have had it been more strictly to style.

pivnizub (10619) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle (this beer is not served at Munich’s Oktoberfest !): Amber coloured, small off-white head, quickly vanishing; grainy, slightly malty nose with a nutty touch; faint, sweet malty start, mild bitter flavour, ending in a quite dry, bitter-malty finish with a metallic touch. Drinkable, but really not impressive !

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2005
A moderate malty nut aroma, toasted and a little sour. Appearence is nice, golden brown with an average off-white head with quickly dimished almost completely, small bubbles. A slightly sweet, slightly bitter taste that has something I don’t like. Average palate, a little watery.

A little disappointed. Not a great Oktoberfest beer...better choices out there. Nothing special in taste..not going to buy again/

bipolarbear (6) - Paterson, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2005 does not count
A nice everyday drinking beer. Nothing fancy, just a tasty beer that goes GREAT together with steak. Will definitely get again.
