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.

Pours a soft and translucent copper brown with two fingers of tan head. Nose is malt forward with some appley acetaldehyde notes, malt forward, not too nuanced. Some toasty notes and caramelish sweetness. Rough on the edges. Some biscuity/toasty malt notes in the flavor. Meh

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
