Very nice amber color. Smells about right for the style. Sweet but way too much corn notes in this. Could use some extra malt or some rye to balance. RedSox2004 (2000) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Clear amber orange with a small rocky head with good retention but lttle lacing. Rich malt aromas feature bread and caramel. Toasted malt flavors with a caramel sweetness offset by lightly bitter hops. Light to medium body, gentle carbonation, and a dry malty finish. Very drinkable. greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber, thin head. Bread nose. Toffee and spiced flavor. Bitter finish. Typical Marzen/lager. Suttree (6541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2005
Dark gold, thin white head. Sweet aroma, with notes of i don’t know, pumpkin, maybe? Some caramel in the flavor, but not much. Dryish finish. Thanks to DarkElf for the trade! bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Bottle. Golden beer with a nice off-white head. Low spice/noble hop/malt aroma. Lighter bodied. Not as much malt nor as dark as a typical octoberfest. Clean - some malt, and some spice flavor.

On tap at Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Aromas of cereal grains, caramel, and a bit of nuttyness. Flavors of cereal grains and caramel. Drinkable oktoberfest. mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 22, 2010
A very sweet beer. Smells sweet and tastes sweet. One rater said it was like malt liquor-esque. I have to agree. I wish it had more bittering hops. I will have to do a mixing experiment with my other bottles. It’s clean crisp and flavorful. In your face malt. It’s just too sweet. SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Damn well if this was available the last friday of september then i got some fresh stuff. Miniature head that is almost not there and a light smell hard to pick up. Taste sour of grass/ and has a dunkelweizen malt flavor. Also the vienna is quite refreshing howevernot what id classify as a stand out Octoberfest brew. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle. Sweet maltiness, but very thin. Metallic up front, but the bread and spice take over. Watery and plain.
