Draft. Amber color with a medium head. Cereal and caramel and some hops. Tastes like a slightly spiced version of their amber.

Huhzubendah (2618) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
On draft at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria. The beer is nearly clear, and appears light orange in color. The head is thick and frothy, measuring a little over an inch thick. The aroma is somewhat muted and weak, though I have yet to experience a really assertive, bold aroma from a beer of this ilk. The flavor is nice, with a strong malt and grain presence, followed by a light dose of pleasant spices. Great feel on the palate. I could throw back a few pints of this. I would have this again.

Beerdedone (2663) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma was crisp and malty with caramel, bread and grains. Flavor of toasted malts, grains, caramel, bread and had a hint of toffee

rbrazell (1691) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Draft from Proof. Deep golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is typical German maltiness with touches of honey. Flavor is the same with a medium thick body and a quick slightly bitter finish. Another run of the mill Oktoberfest.

jcos (1560) - Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. I’ve had this before, but never rated. A good example of the style, sweet but not overbearing, and balanced that some American oktoberfests tend to not have.

bwa5879 (685) - Portage, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Medium amber/orange hazy pour. Head was thick and reminiscent of Guinness' and a quarter inch thick. Sour wheaty scent. Flavor is spicy but not too strong. Taste opens up to lactose, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and is a little sour. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3696) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Draught. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate head. Light and slightly malty aroma. Not a lot of flavor, but it is a subtle oktoberfest, which I like.

ICEatALAMO (944) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Draft. Aroma is full with malt and grain. The taste is super smooth. A top notch octoberfest. Full over flavor and munich malt or sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

umich03jm (2054) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Draft at The Oak Cafe. Pours a golden light orange-yellow color with nice amount of head that lingers a bit. Aroma is faint and underwhelming. Smells like a pale lager, a bit of malt and noble hops. Taste is the same. Maybe just a slight caramel malt taste but its very faint. This beer doesn’t seem like an Octoberfest at all. I’m wondering if I got poured the wrong beer. Pretty bland, tastes pretty much like a bland pale lager.
