One of the better of the Oktoberfests. Still bitter, but drinkable by my standards. Out of the Oktoberfests, I think it is my favorite. NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2001
A disappointment. Reminded me of malt liquor. Maybe mine was skunked or from a bad batch. Darkover (1545) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2001

tastes more like a standard lager than an Octoberfest....................... hutch914199 (107) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2001
Eh, it's all right, little too sweet, and not enough flavor to make it memorable.

More flavor than the typical Leine's, although still a bit weak for an Oktoberfest. The bitter flavor of the hops lasts a bit too long. bipolar1 (268) - Hancock, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2001
Leine's is superb way for backwoods good ol' boys to be exposed to great beer. THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2001
The aroma is quite weak. The beer is well balanced. One of Leinie's better brews. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2001
A decent hop bite to this one, which would ordinarily please me, but it obscures the stylized malts. The beer has more character than most other Leinies entries. I do like it better than the Sam Oktoberfest I had recently (I'm planning on brewing my own marzen and have been surfing the style), though it's likely less traditionally done, given its hoppiness.
