I’m not really sure why this one is getting low ratings... This was an excellent beer. This is a true Oktoberfest without all the nasty spices us Americans are used to... Wonderful beer... try for yourself.

Smell of water, corn and hops. Taste is much better, hint of citrus/fruit , hops, yeast but very light very thin, pretty ok, but nothing that special.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 I’m not sure why this gets such low reviews because it is an excellent example of its kind. Very malty, slightly alchol in flavor with low amount of hops to balance the cereal sweetness. Beautiful aroma pouring an ochre yellow hue you’d expect from a late season Octoberfest.

asheft (3027) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2008
[bottle] Grainy base malt aroma with notes of apricot and cinnamon. Clear yellow with a white ring and dots. Strong lager flavour: malty and ethanolic with a good amount of bitterness and perhaps even some higher alcohols, acetone. Medium body, moderate carbonation, almost clean finish.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2008
Clear golden, bright yellow color with medium, vanishing and lacy white head. Aroma is grainy malty and mildly alcoholic. Flavor is also grainy malty and alcoholic but it is still very smooth. Medium-bodied and foamy carbonated palate. Overall very straightforward beer which is extremely easy to drink while enjoying other thing uch as atmosphere. The beer itself is not enjoyable but it’s absolutely doing the job it’s been brewed for.

Yech! As a big fan of HB Maibock, I was seriously disappointed in this watery, pissy rendition of an Oktoberfest style beer. I’ve relegated the other bottles to beer to cook with.
