RATINGS: 54   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.27/5   SEASONAL: Autumn   ABV: -
Old time brewers in Germany made a malty, high gravity beer in March (Maerzen) which they consumed with great ceremony in the fall. The coincidence of a royal betrothal in the autumn of 1810 gave Bavarian beer lovers ample justification for the two-week long bash known as Oktoberfest.

At Triumph in New Hope. Tapped today at 3 pm, and I enjoyed this at around 8 pm. Didn’t meet up to my expectations, but realize that I’ve been waiting for this beer since it was first listed on the fermenting board in early August. Still a very good Oktoberfest

For an Oktoberfest, it was ok. Not as sweet as I was expecting. The carbonation was a little harsh. Could have been better.

Brewed in the USA !!! (KSBF) Pours a lite orange color with a med white head. Aroma of spices , citrus, and malts. Mouthfeel is much of the same with the addition of hops. Pretty good oktoberfest !!!

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2006 Draft in Princeton. Nice amber appearance with a thick tan head. Retention was short. Aroma had a good maltiness. Citrus, courant, caramel were the main flavors. Fine, but a little watery and bitter at times. Re-rate- Better this year. The Munich and Vienna malts worked well together. Caramel and dark fruits were there as well. Malty as an Oktoberfest should be. 7/3/7/3/16 (10/7/06)

Draft at new hope. Clear amber pour with little head. Nice layers aroma with a faint banana note. Taste is crisp and standard. Not bad.

On tap at KSBF 08- Good clear amber with a decent foam head. Hops and a grain malt body. There was a slight spicy hop bitterness that was a little bit off for me. Otherwise good beer.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Lots of good Munich malt character, a little on the sweet side, could use a little aging, and maybe be fermented out a little more

I had it on tap. It pours amber with a small, off-white head and lacing. The aroma is bread and caramel. The taste is caramel, nut, bread, and hay. There’s a nutty aftertaste to it. It was really smooth and drinkable. This is a good one.

Draft at Sippin by the River ’05. These guys make a lot of good an interesting beers. The octoberfest is true to the style: big malt, clean fermentation, fresh.
