I don't have many OFs to
compare it to but I did find
it better than the Sam Adams
version. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Not the best oktoberfest i've ever had, but thats because most of them have been imports. It
s respectable for Pete's and the whole seasonal thing is cool so i'll probably have some this fall. kyzr (1596) - Montana, USA - NOV 16, 2002
Nice amber color with light head. I found a hint of banana/vanilla, which was weird. Odd finish with an off hops presence. Darkover (1544) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2001

Not a bad brew except that the sweetness gets to be a bit much. Sweet aroma and sweet finish. HighlanderOne (1373) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Boy, the smell of this stuff nearly put me off. It's like a hop/fried brussel sprout aroma, almost a skunky smell. Once I got over that I was impressed. It poured to a nice dark amber with a velvety head. The taste is hoppier than most Oktoberfests, which I enjoyed. It felt great and finished nicely. I think I'll buy more. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2003
A average marzen. A amber/orange color with a slightly orange head. Mildly spicey. This is a good fall beer. Even better when on sale and it comes with a free glass. dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2001
My favorite petes product so far. Nice flavor typical of a pretty good Oktoberfest. Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2002
Looks better than it tastes. Not bad for an Pete's. Decent malt tones, but nothing much else.Maybe a little too sweet.
