COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a trip to Germany this spring, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. finalized its inaugural partner, Augsburg’s Brauhaus Riegele, for a brand new Oktoberfest beer. Released each fall starting in 2015, the collaborative seasonal will feature a different German brewery every year. The partnership blends centuries of brewing tradition with modern spirit, giving craft drinkers the ultimate Oktoberfest, a Bavarian festival beer unlike any they’ve experienced in the US.

The 3 Johns. Keg. Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, nice fine crispness. Clean and sweetish pale malts. Touch of cream. Mild nutty vibe, German style. Very mild orange citrus and a touch of orange peel. Light finish. Clean and drinkable.

stantheman (983) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2016
Small bottle from a local liquor store. I’m sorry, I don’t get what the fuss is about. It’s pleasant and drinkable, but not very interesting. Good for style maybe. I guess I don’t appreciate the style. 3.3

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Tap pours at Stag & Lion and 12oz bottles at home. Clear golden pour with great foam. Nose is honey, fresh bread. Pretty neutral. Taste is slightly papery, mild salt, fairly dry for style, no alcohol warming, no sticky caramel. It goes in a different direction than what I’m used to for this style, and it probably better off for it.

GuideDogSaint (1291) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 1, 2016
355ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of malt. Sticky sweetness. Quite enjoyable.

TedE (1183) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2016
355ml bottle into weizen glass. Sweet sweet bready malt nose, hints of butterscotch and vanilla. Slightly hazy amber beer with steady stream of fine bubbles. Slight zing in the mouth, full-bodied. Finish is oily, caramel and alcohol. There is a slight bitterness at the end but doesn’t really balance the cloying alcohol chewiness. S’alright.

Michael27 (1519) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 24, 2016
Aus der Flasche vom Händler des Vertrauens. Goldfarben im Glas mit low carbonisation und schnell verschwindenen Schaum. Was dann bleibt ist eine liebliche Malzigkeit. Sonst nix. Keine Chance gegen die bayrischen Originale.

ajnepple (6015) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2016
On tap at The Mayor of Old Town. Clear golden appearance with a lingering, lacy white head. Aroma of toasted Munich malts and light hops (earthy, spicy, herbal). Similar flavor, smooth and malty with a light to mild hop bitterness. Crisp mouth feel with ample carbonation. An easy drinker overall.

George999 (453) - Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2016
From the bottle to pour is clear and caramel colored, the aroma is mild almost like water but my wife is picking up more notes than I am so I’m sure it’s good, the taste was immediately caramel there’s a nice sweet hit to the back end of the throat, and the finish is almost like caramelize sugar, that would make this sound like a very sweet beer but this isn’t this is very good balanced Oktoberfest

12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a deep amber/copper color with a small off white head that faded into a film. The aroma and flavor have toasted bready malts, caramel, some general fruitiness, grass, lager notes, pretty much a basic, clean Oktoberfest.
