jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Pours amber with a small tan head. Aroma is very malty, with hints of caramel and toffee. Flavor is very malty, with hints of caramel and toffee. Only a decent example of an Oktoberfest, and too expensive to megasession.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Pours clear orange with small tan head. Toasty caramel aroma. Flavor is sweet with nice malty flavors, caramel and molasses. Nice hop finish. A bit of a sugary aftertaste. Pretty good except the aftertaste.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2005
Bottled. Nice amber colour with a big slightly off-white head. Caramelly, malty aroma with a little hoppiness. Malty, caramelly, medium sweet with hops coming through in the finish. Fairly balanced, though leaning maybe a bit more towards maltiness. Mediumbodied with a good mouthfeel. Good one, though this style is not particularly my favourite.

bb (8884) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 22, 2005

Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Pours amber-gold. Out of all the German fest-beers this one is on top of my list. That doesn’t mean is soo good but the best i’ve tasted. Easy-drinking, clean refreshin with a mild-nutty, nutmeg flavor. Sweeet.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2005
On draught at Bauern-Stube in south Orlando, Florida. Copper-colored with thick white head. The caramel aroma is the first thing that pops out of the dimpled liter stein. Caramel sweetness with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Despite being a little higher in alcohol content, it is still easy enough to down a liter at one sitting.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2005
slight haze to this amber brown beer. hints of molasses an dcaramel on a malty nose, tart and clean rich malty flavors that pushes the palate with its aftertaste. gggow!

MiP (15378) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle. Dark copper colour, small head. Looks flat. A little malty. The alcohol stands out a bit, perhaps it is because of the combination with a hop flavour that is a little harsh. Mild carbonation, which I like. Good mouthfeel.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 Bottle. Amber in the glass with a loud off-white head. Sweet aromas of prune, raisins and a light floral background. The flavor found sweet malts with a light fruit undertone. Medium body and smooth.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2005
One of the most repeatedly drinkable beers I have ever encountered. Smooth and buttery in texture while remaining thinnish. Malty tones carry all the way through.
