Hazy amber-brown with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and apples. Sweet malts dominate flavor, with lots of earthiness and caramel, some spiciness. Lots of carbonation, but it’s not overly harsh. beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2005
Nice easy-drinking beer. Standard amber body with some fresh citrus hops and sweet caramel malt aromas Malty with a touch of citrus and yeast in the medium mouthfeel. Nice aftertaste with a light bitter touch. docsteigs (542) - Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Clear amber with thin head; smells of mild malt; tastes fresh with mild malt lager backbone; good finish; easy session lager/ Dorkenstein (536) - - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle says enjoy by 19 dec 2016. Rated on 1/25/17. Aromas of toffee, honey, caramel, and some wet leaves. Taste is caramel, toffee, mineral water, and slight toast. honey, wet leaves in the finish. More toast and wet leaves in the after taste. I imagine it hasn’t fallen off too much. dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Pours razor-clear amber with thin head, ok retention. Aroma is very cereally toasted malt and nuts; smells like a fresh mash if you’ve ever experienced one; perhaps a bit heavy on the crystal malt, though. Taste is bready and nutty with a mild spicy noble hop finish. Body is medium, average carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, dry-ish finish. Overall, a delightful oktoberfest that tastes very fresh.

Poured amber with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some hops. Good balance of malt and hops. A tad more malt character. Fruit and spice flavors also present. bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2011
12oz bottle from an October trip to Colorado. Simply the best American-made Oktoberfest beer out there...nutty, roasted caramel malts dominate both aroma and flavor, with a refreshing crisp dryness from Saaz hops at the finish. Clear honey orange with a moderate white head and well-balanced carbonation. Larry_Duffman (527) - - OCT 16, 2015
I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a reddish color with a tan head. The aroma is hay, bread, and some sweetness. The taste is grass, squash, bread, and sweet malt. The palate is smooth and a bit thin. It’s sessionable and would pair well with bar food. flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Clear orange color with a large off-white head that dissipated quickly. Spicy nutmeg, corriander, yeast and malt aroma. Corriander, nutmeg, bread, malt and floral hops flavors. Fairly thin watery feel with a lightly dry finish. carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2009
