COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Octoberfest, a German tradition that celebrates harvest. Now Atwater carries on the tradition with our own special lager "Blocktoberfest". Brewed with 100% German malt for a rich taste and amber color.

Bottle (from backlog). Caramel color without much aroma. Bready with some spices. Thin and not that interesting.

Appearance: Pours with a head that doesn’t last long. The color of the beer is just what you’d expect from the usual Oktoberfest -- perfectly like Autumn. Looks nice, but lacking overall. Smell: Meh. Sweet, caramel-like, and malty. Again, average. Taste/feel: I wonder if these other reviews got a skunked bottle or theirs just wasn’t fresh ... I’m getting an above average taste here. The first sip is INCREDIBLY bready tasting. Honestly, almost TOO much so. After that though, you get a super tasty malty Oktoberfest with a very nice mouthfeel. I haven’t had many Oktoberfests (Actually, I’ve only had this and Sam Adams’ up to this point), but I like this one quite a bit more than Sam’s. The carbonation and texture and the overall taste. I don’t know about you other guys, but I enjoy this one a good bit. Would love to try it on tap.

Aroma is grainy/bready malts and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is malts, mild sweetness, fruit and somewhat thin in body.

Bottle. Caramel colored, clear, light head. Deep malty taste, a little a acerbic, lingering finish. Just ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

doboy (416) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours an amber color with a nice fine head that diminishes to a lacing around the edge. Very slight malt aroma. Nice malt and hop aroma, somewhat sweet. Fairly good mouth feel. Aftertaste is nice. A good beer, not a great beer.

superspak (2540) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in Sept 2012. Pours lightly hazy copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with very good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Good soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of apple, pear, caramel, toast, biscuit, raisin, nuttiness, molasses, and herbal spiciness. Ok aromas with decent balance; but they are far too fruity and phenolic. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, pear, apple, nuttiness, molasses, earth, and herbal spiciness. Lingering notes of toast, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, earth, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very solid balance of flavors with a fairly robust feel; minimal cloying after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, slick, and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very solid oktoberfest. Some good flavor balance and robustness; quite easy and smooth to drink. This was pretty enjoyable.

Pours clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has roasty malts, dry leaves, and a bit of fruit and caramel. Flavor is nutty and earthy with dry leaves and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a roasty/earthy and slightly bitter finish.
