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.

tectactoe (1863) - Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle: Deep brown, slightly red & mahogany body with a beige-gray head that settles quickly; mild lacing. Aroma of tomato soup, creamed corn, toasted bread, sweet malts.... What? Taste is equally perplexing with a strong stewed tomato & vegetal flavor. Peppery malts, toast, nuts, & a stale yeast aftertaste. Medium bodied. Leave it to Atwater to butcher basically every style of beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a clipped off date of March 2015. Handsome medium amber pour with a big off-white head. The aroma is generally subtle but I pick up some sweet malts and a nutty character more associated with a brown ale. Hops are distant. Medium body. The flavor is more akin to a sweet brown ale than what I expect from an Oktoberfest. Certainly I get malts but they are nutty malts. This would be a great brown ale but as an Oktoberfest it is only above average.

Pretty terrible October or whatever it wants to be. Very thick and sweet not much else going on.
