WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. A clear light golden color body with a thick short lasting white head , medium carbonation . Aroma of grassy hops, light bread dough and light skunk notes. Flavor is slightly sweeter than the aroma suggests , cereal grains , floral hops , corn lager , with a hint of honey and hey. Short dry finish,medium body with a crisp mouthfeel . Very drinkable but nothing special .

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Serving: 330 ml. bottle. Appearance: Crystal gold color with a large, foamy, white head. The head has decent staying power and lacing. Aroma: A good bit of euro lager, a little paper, and some floral notes. Lighter and less malt aroma than I was expecting. Taste: Toasted malt, a bit of alcohol, some grainy sweetness, and a litter more aggressive bitterness than other Oktoberfests. This one is a little brash and rough around the edges. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. Short, slightly sweet finish. Overall: A little on the unrefined side and a little light in the flavor department when compared to it’s peers. Easy drinking and okay, just not the best example of style. Rebuy: No, there are better examples out there.

pours a transparent golden color with a white head. I like the Oktoberfest beer genre, but this one is pretty average. 12 oz bottle

My favorite of all the O-fest varieties out there. I wait all year for this one to show up. Pours a bright golden yellow with a nice balance of hops and malt on the nose. Drinks crisp and clean with a nice hoppy bitterness on the finish that balances against the sweet nature of the Munich and Vienna malt flavors nicely. Fill your beer boot and crank up the oompah band!

drowland (8477) - Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at Proof. Pours golden with hints of red and nice white head. The aroma is fresh grain, sweet bread, and a hint of yeast. The flavor is a big wallop of fresh grain, a touch of caramel, and just a dash of anonymous hops.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle (in NZ). Pours a light gold with a touch of haze, and a thin but creamy white head. A slightly metallic, but sweet malty aroma. A clean palate, not too sweet, with a simple grainy malt flavour along with a touch of citrus hops. A finish is only moderately dry. "Drinkable" is a good descriptor.

Overall Impression: Solid Oktoberfest, another quality beer from the people who introduced me to the Beer Garden & the Oompah Band. Gotta love Munich. Thank you, Bavaria.

12 oz bottle at a cast party in Farmington Hills MI. Many thanks to the Springer family for a great party with great beer! Anyways, this poured a clear straw yellow, with some caramel and slight hop aromas. The flavor was also perfectly sweet, with a great malty finish. I would say this beats any american macro in "drinkability" and I will definitely be getting this again. Cheers!

TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - APR 8, 2009
Bottle. The aroma is very sweet, reminds me of cookies, also light fruity. Surprisingly sweet, nearly sticky. The head is small, creamy and white with a normal duration. The body is clear and yellow-orange. The taste is light sour, later on the taste gets mild and light metallic. The body is light, dry and a little bit watery with a normal carbonation.
