On tap at jerrys on division. Pod opaque chestnut w a soapy white head. Nose is clean and crisp w malt back behind gentle hops. Taste is similar... Not super complex but enjoyable

Draft. Copper/amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, Munich malt, light biscuit. Medium body, medium maltiness, moderate caramel sweetness, and a light bitter finish.

commonmac (353) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Tap at Bulldog Uptown. Special Octoberfest celebration pimping the style of beer. A copper, maybe orange color with a basically non-existent head. Aroma is faint with a slight lean towards a hop/malt combo. Taste, at first, is actually better than expected. It doesn’t attempt anything original but pays homage to the style well. More malt than anything else. Probably worth ordering in this month but not otherwise.

dlovell2 (823) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2014
On tap at RFD’s. Pours copper color with white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some biscuity notes. Flavor is nutty sweet caramel malt with bready biscuity notes and some fruitiness. Slight hop finish . Really great Octoberfest.

Aromas of bread, caramel, corn, and grass. Clear orange-red with a fairly lasting white head. Dry, bready. Medium bodied.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste malty, caramel, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fraternie (826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Straightforward for the style, with a sweet caramel malt flavor that turns a but thin and watery at the back of the palate, showing an intense lagery dryness, lingering on an unpleasant bitter note.

"surprised at the lower marks...this one is a definite standout in the style. rich inviting aroma before i even poured it. pretty spot in traditional with the style, but much richer and more flavorful than your average Octo. Well done!"

unclemike (2269) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours copperish with a small white head. A light malt aroma but just barely and the flavor has a mild malt taste with some light hoppish spice
