COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bavarian-style Oktoberfest bier brewed with the finest Bavarian malted barley, aromatic German noble hops and traditional yeast brewed in strict accordance with the German bier purity law of 1516, the Reinheitsgebot. This rich malty lager is one of the few that remain true to the tradition of fest beers originally brewed to honor the marriage of Prince Ludwig in 1810. We hope you enjoy this fall offering. Es is nicht normal. Prosit."

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2009
22 Oz Bottle - For the price I probably expected a bit more. Copper colored beer with good head retention. Sweet biscuit flavor, but essentially nothing special.

(En fût à Heorot): Typique midwest maltiness avec assaut d'agrumes. Je suis nostalgique soudainement.

Bomber from the archives, bottled circa 2007. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma. Whatever complexity this had when brewed has dissapate with age.

drpimento (3759) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Decent enough of an Oktoberfest beer, but they don't seem to have used much if any Vienna malt. To me, that's a key ingredient of a good fest beer.

Underrated style of beer especially when done right. Good malt flavor, good balance on the back end.

BeerdedDave (1875) - Beckley, USA - MAY 16, 2017
amber color; bready, malty aroma; a good, well-balanced Oktoberfest; a decent amount of bitterness with a bready malt background

slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle from trade. Pretty nice for a style I have really really enjoyed only a few of. This is straight forward bread and toffee...well done. Surprisingly not as richly malty as my favorites in style.

3.4
TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Rusty orange. Straightforward but pleasant aroma of plum, honeyed toast, cookie, hazelnut and hay. Fluffy carbonation. Full body. Punchy Munich gives substantial weight as do plummy esters. Good textural grip to the deep toast, which hints at melanoidins at times and adequately wards off any excessive plummy slickness. Lovely blend of tobacco softness, hay dust and marzipan extends from the well-extracted maltiness. Dab of floral notes adds a refined touch and softens the body. Finishes beefy, fully malty and toasty, with toasted bread and restrained hop spice lingering. A straightforward example, and a tad underattenuated to me, but thankfully it is a serious rendition and not dry-hopped or something silly or Americanized. Pretty easy to like. The $10 price tag is very unreasonable, though. For around $3.00 a bomber, I’d be drinking this again.
