Dark amber with a malt aroma. Minimal foam. Taste is nice but muddled. Malt, caramel and a little biscuit. Unusual finish. Good beer.

Another solid offering from Bell. A desent white head sits atop a orange amber color beer. Fades quickly but is always present.Aroma is that of spicy hops and mild malt with yeasty bready tones. Biscuit malt taste with hop bitterness at end. Medium body. Very drinkable

Very difficult to get ahold of, Bell’s hasn’t distributed this the last two years but it is one of the best octoberfests.

"This beer pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. Nice lacing on the class that sticks for a while. Aroma of malts. Flavor of malts, hops, and spices.

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.
