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.

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.

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 (8971) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle. Copper color with an off-white head. Sweet malt aroma with spicey noble hops. Clean, sweet caramel flavor with earthy/spicey hops in the background. Easy to drink.

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.
