We had this brew at the Windsor brewery which made it very fresh. The food is good, but doesn't stack up to the brews.

A very nice oktoberfest. Good spicies with nice bitter overtones finishes sweet. Pours thick amber with good head. Raytailgater (105) - Rockledge, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2002
Never met a octoberfest i didn’t enjoy. Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2002
One of my favorite beers. Aroma was great, nice golden appearance, and was perfectly smooth. Great beer from a great brewery! Re-rate 9/28/02 I remember this beer being a lot better, but then again I had it off tap in a glass. Still a real solid beer, and one of my favorites from Harpoon. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.
Appearance: It has a thick and foamy beige head over a dark orange amber colored body with good clarity. The head has good retention and slowly fades to thin covering leaving nice slick lacing that slides down the glass as I sip.
Smell: Its aroma is creamy sweet and malty with some toasted caramel notes and mild leafy hops.
Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has wonderful toasted notes with sweet creamy caramel and mild spicy/leafy hops. Hop bitterness is mild throughout but picks in the finish and fades off the tongue slowly. It has a smooth and creamy texture that is just slightly sick with good balanced carbonation and a solid medium to full body.
Notes: Well done! This is a great Oktoberfest/Amber Ale brewed with Ale yeast instead of traditional Lager yeast.

Perfect drinkers beer, very nice for the winter vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2003 Very dark amber color with a smooth taste and a slighty bitter finish. Not as flavorful as some of the German breweries, but overall really good for a local brew. Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2010
On Tap. Putney Inn VT. Nice deep amber pour with a nice foamy head. Cinnimon chocholet roasted barley make up a nice part of this beer without over powering the natural flavor. Enjoy! spamalope99 (27) - USA - AUG 18, 2001
Very drinkable - good taste. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2002
Draft- A tasty, full bodied beer with a nice malty flavor. Well balanced but leans a little to the sweet side.
