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.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours clear amber with massive off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and a little nutty. Flavor is malty with some caramel notes. Something if off as flavor is astringent and has some sour yeasty notes. Not a very good fest beer or just a regular lager for that matter.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Clear, dark amber with orange highlights, tan head with good retention and lace. Muted aroma, malt and grass. Initial impressions in the mouth are cidery, a little bit of grass. The malt backbone is drawn out, bitter, nutty, with a tea-like tannic astringency. Medium body and carbonation.

Radek Kliber (7115) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 2, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Bottle 355 ml, Appearance: Clear, dark brown brew with large, frothy, sea foam like head. Dark amber light see thru. Aroma: plain plumy sweetness with lighter hints, touch of brown sugar and fig. 6- Flavour/Palate: Medium bodied. Strange off - dried fruit bitterness with slight brown malts feel. Figs and bitter leaf on light base. Lacking life and harmony.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle. Clear copper supporting a quickly dissipating dirty white head. Aroma must have been down the block because I only picked up the faintest trace of toasted malt. As expected, malt-dominated flavor but not consistent enough to ward off some funky adjunct-like notes. Watery texture and not much of a finish. Oddly, it’s still a drinkable beer but not a good Fest by a long shot.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2008
(bottle - 12 oz) Amber color with a fizzy and puffy off-white head. Aroma is slightly sour and vinegary with hints of malt underneath. Flavor is sour and overly sweet and has a strange plastic taste to it. This can’t be the way it’s supposed to taste. It’s god awful.

EithCubes (5551) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Bottle. Grainy, phenolic, and vinegar sour aroma with caramel, molasses, toast, and sweet floral yeast. Translucent dark mahogany with an uncontrollably large beige head. Taste is bitter, sour, and sweet, basically a mishmash of vomity flavors in the style of a bad Saison, Rabbid Rabbit comes to mind. Infected, or just bad? Didn’t even try to finish.

thornecb (5448) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Fluffy off-white whipped cream head. Caramel aromas. Spry with a sourness that I don’t believe is intentional. Nasty lasting sour finish.

halfonit (1319) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Has a nice hazy brown color. Has your average Oktoberfest malt scent to it. Not much head at all. One of the smoother tasting fest beers I’ve had. A pleasant experience.

doubelknv3 (1081) - Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Floral, sour citrus, and yeast aroma. Amber with enormous off-white head. Floral, sour fruit, and malty flavour notes. Watery, with medium bitter finish.
