Pours hazed orange-reddish amber with a creamy head that thins. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramelized grain.

The taste is of sweet caramel with a balancing bitter touch. Clean, crisp finish.

It is very smooth, as it should be. Very fitting carbonation. Malty smooth.

This is a solidinterpretation of a smooth, easy-to-drink O-fest with a nice malty texture.

Sampling right now on 6/11/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled-glass stein.

Pours a hazy brown-amber in color with a good 2- finger off-white head that settles down to just a thin layering on top and sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen with each sip. Perfect carbonation for this type of brew. The aroma is of bread yeast, malts and spice. The taste is about the same with some toffee, honey and orange peel as well. Very tasty and goes down very easy compared to others I had of this type.

Pretty good beer but tastes different that other Oktoberfest's I've had. Oktoberfest brews are some of my favorite beer. That being said, the taste was kind of lacking on this beer, tastes more like regular beer than most Oktoberfest's, not as sweet as most. I wouldn't say this is a bad beer but there is definitely better Oktoberfest brewers out there. I don't think I'd buy this again.. it needs more of the Oktoberfest taste. Instead it tastes like someone poured regular beer into the Oktoberfest...

Lakefront Brewery Oktoberfest

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy amber/brown color, with a full finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam and formed wispy clouds that collected over the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very malty and bready with notes of black pepper, honey and clover.

Taste: Like the aroma, the beer is very malty and bready with notes of black pepper, toffee, orange zest, clover and honey.

Mouthfeel: Medium with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: A good American version of an Oktoberfest beer, but nothing memorable. While I enjoyed it, and would also happily drink it again, there are a good number of American Oktoberfest beers that I’d order or purchase again over this one.
