Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2017
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with dense big, lasting, off-white head. Malty nose with treacle-toffee, dried fruit, figs, crisp-bread, wort and caramel. Malty taste with notes of treacle-toffee, dried fruit, wort, caramel, a slightly sharp malt profile and a finish with a mild bitterness and a slight acidity. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. A bit sharp and unbalanced, but decently drinkable. Enjoyable. laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2007
12 oz bottle. Very malty and fruity. Not a big fan of this one. But worthy of another taste and a re-rate in the future. radagast83 (8074) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. This is probably my most favorite Oktoberfest beer this season. It is not overpowering, and relatively balanced. The malts aren’t too overpowering, and the hop balance is just about right. Very nice subtle bitter finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft at ncbc. Pours a clear dark amber with a loose creamy tan head. Mild artichokey nose, mixed with old wet leaves and stale tobacco. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Artichoke and old wet leaves on the mid palate. Neutral finish.

Sample at the Oktoberfest tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/23/10. Clear amber pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, thick caramel and earthy hops. Malty aroma with some nuttiness and some crisp, bitter hops. PorterPounder (7971) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper orangeish pour with little to no head. Aroma is faint, but what is there is earthy and sweet, kind of like fresh mushrooms. Flavor has some hints of caramel, a hint of ripening vegetables, and a bit of a roasty character underlying throughout. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Solid Oktoberfest. drfabulous (7952) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Very decent Lager. One of the better Oktoberbest beers (not my favorite styles). I don’t understand some of the critiques here regarding hops. Why would a Lager be hoppy? It wouldn’t. Hermod (7936) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Draught @ Brewdog Helsinki.
Poured mahogany color with a thin white head.
Grainy malty, nutty aroma.
Bready malty, grainy flavors. Good drinkability. Crisp. Light.

Tap. Pours with a clear amber body, with a huge tab head. Aromais grainy, toasty, lightly hoppy, and buttery. Taste is creamy, caramel, toasty, and dry. Medium dryness. Lively.
