A coppery amber lager that showcases a full bodied, malty flavor that is balanced by a refreshing bitterness derived from fine noble hops.

Pours a clear copper on tap with thick white head and good lace. Aroma is slight caramel and bready grain. Taste follows, light and lackluster. Meh.

A pleasant-enought Octoberfest, not likely to offend nor especially please anyone. A minimally interesting entry from one of Michigan’s great breweries.

Doghair (295) - Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Dark amber with a malt aroma. Minimal foam. Taste is nice but muddled. Malt, caramel and a little biscuit. Unusual finish. Good beer.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Tap: sunburst, rustic orange, muddled throughout with an eggshell layer of foam that sits still somewhere around three millimeters thick. Aroma is a little lackluster, especially for a malty Oktoberfestbier. A hint of sweet caramel, a little toast, and some earthy hops that are hinting at the English type. Not much depth at all. Taste is slightly underwhelming, too. Some more caramel malt, but far lighter and less sweet than I’m looking for. A hint of toasted barley, a touch of grassy and earthy hops with just a faint amount of bittersweet on the back of the tongue. Dry, grainy finish. Not a bad beer by any means, but just a little lacking in some areas.

Travlr (15912) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Draft. Barely hazy light amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel and biscuit. Taste is plain caramel.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a burnt orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is a lightly sweet maltiness mixed with cooked grains, there is also a little earthy-grassiness. Taste follows the aroma with a gentle malty sweetness that is smooth on the palette and is followed by a nice and light peppery-spicy hoppiness. Medium body, very carbonated and fizzy.

b3shine (6595) - Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looksg solid; a transparent light copper with thin white lacing. Smells malty and a little doughy with notes of toffee and caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An okay Oktoberfest.

Draft at Logan's Alley , nice amber color , just enough hops to balance out the malt . Sweet malt finish. Probably my favorite domestic octoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
