355ml bottle. A very deep amber orange colour with a great aroma packed full of maltiness with hints of butterscotch, vanilla and caramel.Thick in the mouth with good texture and body. Light on the palate and an all round goo beer. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle 330ml from the local taphouse. Nice malty beer, with hoppy notes. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, with hints of cola and also herbs. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head. EchoStrat (3) - - SEP 1, 2013 does not count
A nice classic Oktoberfest .
Great malt character.
Very drinkable beer. Perfect to bring in the fall

Best by January 13 2014, printed very small near the neck - almost wipes off. Pours out a rich amber color with tan head. Smells like sweet bready malts, sour dough, herbal and earthy hops. Taste is bready almost doughy, some caramel, with a clean noble hop finish. Also getting some raisins. Mouthfeel is rich and full but not too heavy; sessionable. Overall this is one of the better Oktoberfest beers I've had from anywhere. Honestly Id rather drink a fresh unpasteurized American version than take a gamble on an imported one. Not my favorite beer style but worth a visit in September during "Oktoberfest".

A deep amber color with a finger width head. Smelled of indistinct spices, fruit, and bread. A spicy.. slight pumpkin flavor. An overall good October fest style beer.

Pours copper. Aroma is toast, honey cookies. Taste is caramel, toffee, toast. A wisp of hops. Bottom line - smooth, elegant, balanced lager. uwbeaker (4) - - FEB 5, 2016 does not count
A bold wonderfully smooth Oktoberfest style with a slight honey finish. Something good to sit down next to the campfire with.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is lots of grain, hay and earth. Taste has a malty sweet, but balanced bitter. Fresh bread. Texture is thicker.
