chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2005
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 (10454) - 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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2005
Bottle (St Albans 05): Quite highly carbonated copper with a beige head. Decent balanced refreshing flavour. Suprising hop notes come through. Easy drinking, innofesive yet tasty lager. Exactly what you want at oktoberfest.

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2005
Orange-amber, clear beer; yellowish tinted head, fast gone. Very subdued nose, some malt sugars. Water-sodden bread. Sweet-bready, and especially malty taste, finish being a bit drier, hinting at hops, slightly metallic. Strangely, exactly as in the just tasted Octoberfest (Sam Adams), I get a metallic MF, though not typical copper this time (and I’m NOT on antibiotics!). Medium bodied at best. Aftertaste returns to more sweetness. Not very exciting, really. Is this Heineken’s accountants’ doing, or just global superficialisation - or is that saying the same thing twice?

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Lots of diacetyl, damp wood, overly sweet. This was cloying, and too thick and syrupy feeling. Based on the ratings, maybe it was a bad bottle, but I didn’t care for this.

CJfromPhilly (140) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Pours from the bottle an orangish-amber with a foam white one finger head that settles down into thick lacing. Medium carbonation, a few bubbles, but not overly fizzy. I smell bready malts & hints of toffee/vanilla. Malts and hops work together nicely in the flavor department. They tend to complement each other rather than trying to overpower each other. Nice medium mouthfeel, just a lingering bitterness on the swallow. Very well done!!!
