Pours orange to copper with a head that falls a bit quickly, but leaves lacing.

The smell is of steely caramel with nuts from the rich, complex malt.

The taste is of caramelized bread, some nuts and a touch of bitter noble hops in the finish.

It is smooth. Easy to drink.

This hits the style well. Very authentic. I am looking forward to drinking plenty of this during Oktoberfest season!

Sprecher Oktoberfest

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Served cold...

A) Cloudy amber with a nice creamy head. Nice retention... No lacing... Good looking brew right here.

S) Very malty... Bready with a little whiff of caramel sweetness.

T) Malt dominates the flavor, which isn't a surprise for the style, but I found this a bit grainy for my tastes. There is some light hop bitterness on the backend.

M) Medium bodied with light carbonation. Could have been a little more lively. Went down okay...

O) A pretty average O-Fest in my opinion.

Nice medium pour to a very nice gold amber and a rich head retaining acceptable lacing.

I like the smell. Im getting honey with a little bit of fruit. The taste is typical Oktoberfest. Sweet malt with a very light after taste, without the dry bite I usually like in my standard premium Lagers. But thats OK ; Its an Octoberfest. I find the taste delicious.

I bought it as a single. I'd buy a 6 pack if I saw it next year this time. Its a pretty beer to look at and a rich honey malty taste that begs a fall indulgance. I enjoyed this beer.
