COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth brew ushers in Autumn with an invitingly tawny color complemented by an assertive maltiness. A noble crispness from German and Czech hops completes this very traditional lager-style beer.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2007
12 oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, sourdough, nuts, grain, and a tiny bit of spice. Poured copper in color with a med-sized, fizzy, off-white head that diminished. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is neither sweet nor bitter. Tastes very malty with notes of sourdough, noble hops, nuts and salt. Light to medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Malty, salty finish. Kind of a weak Oktoberfest, especially in the body.

Pours a translucent golden amber with a smaller bubbly off white head that left hints of lacing. Aroma of sweet grainy maltiness, light spicing, some nuts and hints of caramel. Flavor of Cheerios, pretzels, some malty sweetness, tough of honey, dry, some hop spiciness.

Dark orange-amber body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Sweet caramel and bready malts. Faint florals and generic fruitiness. Medium to full bodied, mellow carbonation, sweet, rounded finish.

nickd717 (4285) - Sofia, BULGARIA - JAN 12, 2011
12oz bottle via trade. Typical appearance for the style, deep copper/amber in color, clear, with a one finger white head that fades to a thick ring. Nice caramel aroma with herbal notes and honey. Very malty without much hop contribution. Somewhat sweet flavor with Munich malt evident. Lots of caramel, black tea, and some Noble hops on the flavor. Decent, but something is slightly off-putting on the finish. Medium body for the style with average carbonation. A fine oktoberfest, but not the first I’d reach for if I had a choice.

Draft at Lancaster Harrisburg. Pours light brown with a thin khaki head. Slight malt notes on the nose. I got a slight steel quality mixing with the malt. Clean finisher. Eh!

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Cask at Capital Ale House. Medium to darm amber, lovely tan head with just a sheet of lace. Slightly bitter dirt aroma. Caramel malt, oddly bitter earthen finish, very light floral note as well. Ultimately couldn’t get into the sort of gritty dirt hop flavor this seemed to possess. Interesting htough.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear amber color with a slight off-white head. The nose has hints of toast, caramel, and apple. The flavor is light, slightly fruity and has toasted malt notes. There is a lingering bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied. Serviceable.
