Bottle from drake party store. Amber brown pour. Thin offwhite head that began disappearing immediately. Typical Octoberfest beer smells: root beer, deep caramel and malt. Low carbonation. Malt predominates overall but that's just the side of the spectrum this beer lies on, it's not the focus. Flavors of Carmel and roasted nuts, it's bright like cola. Finish is smooth, more roasted nuts and caramel.

This bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. Poured an amber color with a big off white head and lots of good lacing as it settled. Nose of roasted malts with nuts and spices. Medium in body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is again some nuts and ripe fruit. Nice lightly bitter finish. Quite a nice beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours reddy copper in colour, moderate off white head. Aroma and taste are nice sweet caramel malt, and nice noble hops. Prob a little hoppy for the style, but very drinkable! Good stuff!

Much better than the standard Oktoberfest offerings; this is complex, earthy, and nicely hopped. tomthompson89 (1983) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2011
