HQT Octoberfest. 500 ml. bottle. I guess I’m just a wet blanket but I didn’t think this was an enjoyable beer at all. A little on the thick side, with a bitter aftertaste. Didn’t like the silage smell. I think it was a good light beer, that you could drink all day. I’msure it taste better on tap... and on Germany. I’ll make sure to give it a second chance when I’m there.

Bottle - By far the best Marzen/Octoberfest I have had. Malt forward and bready. Hops take a backseat as usual but even more so in this beer. Clean semi-dry finish. Awesome everyday Fall beer.

Very very smooth. Extremely easy drinking. Before I knew it bottle was gone. Very malty and sweet, good strait forward marzen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Pours a nice copper color with a lasting, patchy head. Bready flavor and aroma. Really nice, easy drinking beer here. Good stuff.

Pours a nice copper with an effervescent white head. Nice gently malty bready nose and taste. You can tell this beer was aged appropriately drinking real nice and smooth, as it should.

radio_nowhere (797) - Maryland, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pint bottle into snifter glass, clear copper color with fluffy off-white head. Aroma of warm bread, caramel and faint apple/fruity note. Taste adds notes of grain, toast, honey, dark fruit and balanced earthy hops. Medium-light body, low-moderate carbonation, soft, creamy with clean caramel finish. Very drinkable excellent Oktoberfest.

500 ml bottle, the beer pours a mostly clear dark gold/amber color with about an inch frothy off-white head that sticks around a while. There’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel and bready malt, honey, and light earthy hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of apple and dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good Oktoberfest brew, I’d buy this again in the future. $3.49 a bottle.

500 ml bottle. Pours light brown sugar color with a small tan head. Smells of sweet caramel. Tastes like a caramel apple with a little crisp hop flavor. The perfect fall beer that’s refreshing and tasty while still remaining a beer. One of my all time favorites.

Pours with a medium foam---1/2 inch---disappears quickly. Nice deep gold color and slight off-white head. Faint sweet clover-like aroma ("floral"?)and smells of yeast/bread with slight hop aroma. Taste is like a American lager but perhaps a bit more hop flavor and much more crisp/tart on the back palate---slightly acidic. Overall, pleasant if somewhat boring "old world" style; compared to hop-bombs and weird formulations so popular in many craft brews today.
