Dark copper color with a white foamy head. A full flavor of sweet fruity esters. The body is full and well-rounded, with a nice mellow finish. My favorite Octoberfest ... one of best things about fall in the Twin Cities.

Pours a orange-bronze color. Some light sediment. Pretty good carbonation, but hard to observe because of the sediment. About two fingers khaki head. Long lasting. Very good retention, good lacing. Very nice.

Aroma is malty. Caramel, toffee. Bread crust. Light maple syrup. Either metallic or alcohol aroma.

Taste is sweet and caramel. Lots of malt. I taste some hops, and it’s weird because it’s right on the borderline of noticeable bitterness. It’s hard to describe. But there’s an underlying dankness in there too.

Mouthfeel is medium body. It’s a little metallic. I don’t necessarily taste the alcohol, but I can feel it in my mouth, it has that burn. There’s a bite right at the end, it’s a little difficult to swallow.

Overall, it’s not bad. It’s a high ABV for the style, and I don’t like them that high. A little too much metallic taste. But otherwise, it’s solid. I probably would recommend it. But there are so many of these out there, there are plenty of better options, so I don’t see myself buying it again.

Summit does a consistently respectable job with capturing German authenticity. Their Oktoberfest is no different. Copper color. Malty aromas redolent of dark bread. Caramel and toast notes. Minimal hop character. Rich and smooth. Finish is quick and clean. Pretty tasty.

phaleslu (9580) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle from a friend’s house. Pours a mostly clear orange with a small off-white head and some visible carbonation bubbles. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, spiced cracker, faint fruit, sugars, straw, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Well-executed Oktoberfest.

Keg. Amber pour with a small head. Nose is fairly toasty, nutty. Toasted bread. Light caramel. Mellow chocolate malt accents. Taste is similar. Bready and sweet. Toasted grain. A touch syrupy. Medium body, soft carb.
