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.

EithCubes (5091) - 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 (4546) - 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 (1186) - 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 (995) - 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.

Sregnar35 (977) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Average beer. Pours a amber color with a nice white head. Flavors are sweet and a bit too hoppy for an oktober, but still pretty good.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bright umber color when held to the light. Tall beige head. Quite dark by style, but a good looking brew. Sweet, and lightly sour scents. Light caramel and sour dough. A light infected aroma. Second bottle with the same scent so no bottle specific thing. Fairly light and fizzy feel. Flavors of lightly toasted on the verge of being rancid nuts. Mild sweet sour sauce. Either infected or a strange funky oktoberfest. I would wager the first, but reading some other reviews, I’m not sure.

thegreenrooster (3310) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a fairly decent caramel malt and spicy hop combo. Flavor is not as good with lots of sweet malt but finishes with a horrible plastic aftertaste. What the hell is that? Its stil there way after the first swallow. This is total crap and it promised so much at the begining.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5102) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Inn in North Huntingdon PA this beer poured a dark caramel amber color with a small creamy khaki head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, nutty and malty. The flavor was bitter, sour nut and toffee with a light fruity hop presence. OK.

From Bottle. Poured Amber. Big foamy, cloud like caramel color head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, and grains. Flavor malts, caramels, toffee and a slight hop tang with sweetness all through. A little thin. Lingering bark flavor in the aftertaste.
