This traditional German Oktoberfest style beer is brewed with the highest quality German malt & hops. Available during the fall season on tap and in 16oz Cans. The Fest is crafted in small batches at Cottrell Brewery in Pawcatuck, CT and at the award-winning High Falls Brewery in Rochester, NY under the supervision of Brew-master Sean Larkin. Vienna, Pilsner, Light and Dark Munich malts make up the backbone of this beast, and Northern Brewer & Tettnanger hops are added to give it a crisp but subtle hop flavor.

Pours an apricot color with a nice white head that lasts. Light malt aroma. Mild malt taste that has some mild bite on the back side. VERY easy to drink. A bit thin though. Not a bad beer!

Pretty good 10.00 for 6 pack of 16 oz. more than I usually pay for any Gansett , but very good.

jgb9348 (6478) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Crisp deep copper and bronzed coloured body with a rich, four centimetre tall, rather soapy tan head that leaves a pretty ugly lace. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, very earthy malts and a touch of grain that is noticeable at the end. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive caramelised sugar flavours start the beer strong with a good and cereal-based malt body showing some light alcohol and a fair amount of earth; All finished with some fruit, squash and light spice notes which are probably attributed to the malt bill and yeast strain. Aftertaste shows a fairly easy-to-drink yet balanced beer with a good caramel flavour, some light toffee, hints of earth and a smooth finish showing some good, albeit fairly light, complexities. I sampled this pint sized, sixteen ounce can, purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 15-December-2014.

JBPortland (1564) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2014
16oz can pours clear dark amber orange with two finger head. Nose is round sweet bready caramel and toast spice with hints of orange. Taste is verly sweet caramel, medicinal fruit, malt, light orange spice, steamed vegetables. Finish is bitter and sweet, bread, toast, grain, maple, apricot. Weird, unbalanced. Messy.

jb (3407) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Ahh. Finally a Rhode Island Beer though I suspect brewed at a brewery I bike past sometimes on my way home from work. Very light, a bit malty, but no off notes. Some grain. Refreshing. More toward a straight lager than an Okt but it works.
