Love this beer! Bought it in late September, and after the first six pack, I went out and stocked my fridge with enough to last me until late Dec. Looks like a golden amber autumn leaf, and smells as bittersweet as hooking up with a hot girl and not remembering it because you had too much to drink at Oktoberfest. It really just tastes like what beer should taste like, with perfect balance, and is by far one of the smoothest beers I have ever had. Each drink makes you want another, and against all of the other American Oktoberfest beers, this one is head and shoulders above. A must try!

This was my first KEG I tapped with my new True TDD-1 kegerator. It was great beer and the 1/6th keg lasted all of 10 days.

This beer goes right on par with all of the other oktoberfests I have had. This beer is a very good beer, and being from a texas brewery I tend to lean that way when hitting the local liquor store for a quick sixer. But compared to all of the octoberfests not brewed in germany, this one is tops in my book. Definatly a good malty flavor and light mouthfeel. To bad this one is only out for a short time :(

Oktoberfest beers are here, so I stopped by my local beer store, deciding to try St. Arnold's Oktoberfest. I am a huge fan of St. Arnold's beer in general, so I did not expect this one to disappoint.

A - Has a nice soothing red amber color that looks inviting for Fall weather.

S - Nice soft smell with a hint of some sweetness

T - Delightful taste with a small dash of sweetness, but very great blend of autumn fullness taste.

M - Refreshing feel as each sip makes you want another taste

O - Very impressed with this Oktoberfest, so far this is one of my favorite Oktoberfest brews out. It is very well rounded, pleasant taste and overall feel. Each sip is delightful and refreshing. I definitely recommend everyone to try it.

This is more of an American take on an Oktoberfest. Medium-heavy body, dark amber, with a sort of autumn spice background note that another reviewer also noted. No banana phenols to speak of. If you like SA Oktoberfest, this is a beer to try.

Poured a nice, golden oakey color with little to no white head in a tiny ring. Smells like a bakery! Molasses and honey... yum...
Very sugary scented, more towards brown sugar. Reminds me of bread pudding and jewish apple cake, but not cloyingly sweet at all. Body is thin, but now watery, feels good, smooth, not heavy. Very easily drinkable. Flavors are well blended and the taste is nice, very enjoyable.
Thanks to Kindestcut for this one!

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass...

The liquid was dark copper with a nice white head that dissipated quickly.

It had aromas of sweet caramel and butter with just a slight sourness to it.

The beer tastes mostly of toasted caramel, biscuits, and more sweet malt.

When you take a sip you notice a light- medium body, the smoothness, and just a slightly dry finish.

I'm very impressed with Saint Arnold on this one, nothing bad to say about it at all.

Got this one as an extra in an in-person trade with brewdlyhooked13. This guy rocks, thanks man!

12 ounce brown bottle with no freshness date.

Pours a cloudy, bruised peach color with brassy highlights. The head only stuck around for a few seconds, leaving a flat top with little only a couple suds trails coming to the surface.

Smells of malts, apricot, honey and light floral hops. Rather large and very inviting nose on this one!

Perfectly roasted malts come on the front and stay throughout the entire taste. In the malt mix are things like honey, toasted oats, orange rind, apricots and caramel. Very nice. This doesn't have the typical lactose quality like I find in many other Oktoberfest beers. Finishes with the slightest bit of bitterness.

Medium bodied and flavored. Though it's hidden from the eyes, there's ample carbonation in the mouth. Finishes semi-dry. Very nice!

Thanks again, brewdlyhooked13!
