The one I had, can't remember the name, said it was authentic, but it looked more like a miller lite then an Oktoberfest.
Domestic German Octoberfests are usually more gold-colored and lower gravity, and the export and special versions are orange-colored and typically higher gravity/ABV.

Yup...I brought a 2-litre flip-top bottle of it home from Munich last September.

Just finished a 12 pack of Sam Adams O'fest last week, really enjoyed it, had Becks for the first time also last weekend, thought it was OK.

I want to know what you think of the Widmer Okto. I have always enjoyed, though my palette is not very developed and I don't know style requirements very well. I'm also partial to it, as it's a NW brewery.

Try Brooklyn Brewery Octoberfest...even though I live in Texas, I seem to be supporting this brewery more and more. Good reusable bottles as well!
