Bottle. A nice copper colored pour. Aroma of toasted malts, and a sweet "woody" aroma. A nice toffe flavor with a good toasted malt and a slight biscuit? A very good oktoberfest in my opinion.

Must’ve had a bad bottle. Virtually no carbonation. No head after 10 seconds. While I agree with kaggie about the resemblance in taste to a dopplebock, the bottle I had, had a funny taste to it. Not quite sure how to catagorize it. I’ll try it again just to be certain, but the 1.6 rating reflects the nasty bottle I had.

On tap at JPs (?), at least the tap said so. Anyway, pours a hazy orange with a thin body. Aroma is sweet caramel and malt. Flavor is sweet like a dopplebock, but the weight is lighter than the aforementioned style. Heavy tones of sugar, mollasses, and malt, with a nice cotton candy finish. Palate is smooth and coating. This is a great beer, one that I hope to have over and over again.

Sark ornage body with a creamy, thick head. The aroma is toffee, oranges and some light tobacco. The taste is rather dry with oranges and some light caramel. There is also a toasty note of almonds. Finishes with a little bit of dry wheat. A decent oktoberfest, but I am guessing it is nicer when fresh.

roasty, excellent copper color....decent sized head that diminishes quickly. Excellent served at room temperature or slightly cooler medium sweetness, oily feel, average carbonation,

Great example of the style! Great color, nice head, fine balance! I always anticipate the Fall season with several of these at hand! A solid choice!

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Pours amber with a small white head. Smells of yogurt, toffee and sugar. Tastes of brown sugar and spicey with a decent bittering finish.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Clear orange/amber with a very short tan head. Aroma picked up sweet caramel and toffee malts as well as roasted barley. Very inviting nose for the style, just wish it was a little stronger. Flavor picked up everything from the nose as well as some subtle spices, and the malt backbone worked very well on the palate. Medium-bodied. Finish was sweet and roasty. Very fine oktoberfest.

3.1
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.
