Oakes (16128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2008
Light golden-brown colour. Fresh grainy aroma and light caramel. Somewhat watery of body, and a little caramelly. Reminds me of some Russian dark lagers.

bhensonb (14509) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle from BevMo. Orange tinged gold color with a huge white head. Fresh veg aroma. Not bad, just not beer. Rather light body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is really sweet malt with some sort of herb/veg flavor. Maybe even a hint of mint. It’s incredibly unusual, and somewhere there’s a beer drinker who would love this. It’s just not me. Finish is rather clean, but grainy. The aroma, appearance, flavor and palate aren’t that bad. Despite that, I just don’t enjoy it. DP.

Tmoney99 (13911) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Draft. Clear dark amber with a small white head that diminished quickly. Good sweet malt aroma. Medium body with thin texture. Moderate malty flavor with a medium finish.

Ratman197 (13910) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at Old Chicago Westminster poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, light fruittiness and light earthiness with a crisp lingering carmel finish.

Drake (13152) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Wegman’s Lake Manassas. Hazy pale golden, large foamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of skunk and grainy malt. The taste is caramel, raisin. Thin.

bu11zeye (12894) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2004
(Draught) Pours a clear golden color with a descent-sized white head. Sweet malt and some hops. Nothing too exciting.

BeerandBlues2 (12479) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, corn notes, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is sweet Pils malt, light earthy and spicy hops and bitterness with a clean lager character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Dogbrick (12252) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
On draught at the German Village Oktoberfest. I guess this is a newer offering from Warsteiner and isn't a terrible attempt. Hazy orange color with a thin light beige head. More hops than malt in the aroma, which is kind of a change in this style for me. Medium-bodied and almost over-carbonated with the hop profile dominating, although the malt begins to assert itself a little more on the backswing. The finish is rather slick. This isn't a great beer by any stretch but it does the job nicely on a cold Oktoberfest evening.
