12 oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, rich golden amber color with a nice white head that has nice lacing and decent retention. Aroma is malty and sweet. Lots of caramel malt in this bad boy. Flavor is very smooth malt forward with notes of caramel and grain. There is a very nice balance in this beer and it makes me want a huge 1 liter mug of it! Very well done. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2009

Source:12 oz bottle.
Appearance:Orange/amber pour with a two finger white head.
Aroma:Caramel and bread.
Flavor:Toasty malt, caramel and sweet bread.
Palate:Medium body with solid carbonation.
Overall:Pretty good. Not outstanding, but typical of the style.
From a bottle--pours a medium amber-orange with initially large, white head that disappears quickly. Crystal clear. Abundant malt in the nose. Sweet initial taste. In fact, it’s sweet all the way through with very little bitterness in evidence. Smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. A solid, easy-drinking Oktoberfest. amberale1 (16) - Janesville, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Sampled from the tap at Tyranena and brought home a growler. Tyranena’s Oktoberfest was different than others, a good thing. Nutty and rather fruity aroma and flavor. A touch sweet. A good change, a good Oktoberfest.

The pickings continued to be slim so I opted to give this a try even though I intend to pick up a six pack for myself in a few weeks time. It wasn’t bad but I’ve had better oktoberfests. This one was probably one of the better ones available at the time though.
Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy brown body was transparent with a busy carbonation. Honey, caramel and orange cream highlight the aroma which also contains wheat. It is not complex but it does the job.
Flavor / Palate - Caramel and honey form the basis of most of the sips. Chocolate cocoa puffs unfold as a suprise before the end. It is drinkable and enjoyable without setting the world on fire.
Bottle: Pours a clear copper color with an off white head. Aroma, spices, caramel, some nutty notes. Flavor, crisp earthy notes, some yeasty character, sweet and malty, some spice towards the end. highibus (823) - Vail, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2008
120z bottle from bockyhorsey. Pours a completely cear copper color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet malt and almost a spiciness (not necessarily hop based). The first thing that hits me is the body, medium, but a ligering chewiness. Nice sweet maltiness with a slight hop bite. A nice oktoberfest. Thanks Bill.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Pours a clear deep golden with an off-white head. sweetish malty nose. Solid body with plenty of clean malts, a little fruit and honey and a lightly bitter finish. Lovely. 130608 jbuzz (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2008
