COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

Drake (13146) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse. Orange-amber pour with a one finger head. Low to moderate retention. Grassy, malty aroma.... unpleasant. Sweet grainy taste followed by a toasty and slightly nutty malt finish. Taste is better than the aroma by far, thankfully. Medium body.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw, cereal, meal), light hop (herbs), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple and plum. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Dogbrick (12234) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On draught at the Mill Hill Saloon in Trenton, NJ: The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing. Light malt and caramel along with hops in the nose. Medium body with a soft mouthfeel. Flavors of toasted malt and caramel, plus mild hops and fruit. The finish is sweet malt and a hint of hops. Slightly above average all around.

crossovert (11796) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a reddish orange with a fizzy white head. The smell is of oxidized fruits and caramel. The taste is a bit bland, it starts with a mineral water character and moves into a doughy sweetness with a bit of bitterness. This beer hardly excites me, one of the more forgettable Oktoberfest beers. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2010 06:00:47

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
Pours little leasting fizzy head. peach colour. Initially quenching and fruity but soon strong carbonation overwhelms and burns, and sugary sweet finish it doesn’t work for me.

shrubber85 (10932) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle. Strong grainy malt and caramel aroma. Copper color with small head. Caramel and strong barley malt flavor with a mild hops finish. A very nice festbier - I really like the flavor of the malt in this beer, and it has much more body than most beers in this style.
