Nice bright amber color, faint malt aroma, some sweetness comes through after getting warm,too light for a good Oktoberfest. bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2002
lisdht amber color, minimal head, sweet with some malt, with light hops in the finish. A little bland, but overall an Ok beer IndianaRed (4640) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Bottle Pours a dark slighly hazy amber/brown with only a minimal off-white hed that lingers nicely. Lacing is sparse and chunky. Aroma mostly of dark malts, and carmel. Flavor is malt and nuts but kind of thin. Just has that mass-produced taste. Carbonation is quite soft. Easy on the hops and the finish is lacking bitterness but a woody earthen taste is there. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Pours a transparent orange/red, with small white head. Aroma is light, of malt, cherries. Flavor is full of hops, bitter, citrus ending. A nice example of the style. Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2005
This has a bit more "hop" to it (get it?) than most Oktoberfest brews. Still, Widmer lives to disappoint. The worst thing is the odd metallic taste in the finish. Like putting a dime in your mouth. I apologize for that awful pun earlier.

There’s nothing particularly interesting about this beer. It’s a decent Oktoberfest, but very little special about it. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Pours a deep clear amber color with a faint off white head. Has a light grassy, caramel aroma. Has a lightly sweetend caramel malt flavor. I don’t know where the Oktoberfest comes in. Medium body. Worth a try. undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Pours a brown/amber with a small just off white head. Very faint aroma of malt and bread. Taste is malty, a little bit on nuts and caramel with a creaminess on the pallate. There is also a bit of fruit in the end. Not bad but there is not enough of what actually has going for it. marcus (10232) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 24, 2008
This reddish amber ale poured with a modest beige head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty aroma that reflects the substantial caramel malt flavor. There is a dry citrus finish. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Pours with a small, off-white head that goes leaving behind a cleear orange body. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and a bit of champagne like spritz. Taste is hard to find (not much of it) but there is some caramel and diacetyl. Light bubbles.
