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

Bottle. Not much going on with the aroma. The beer carries a very small white head that disappears quickly No noticeable lacing or retention. It displays a beautiful sparkly orange gold color. Taste is excellent. Crisp and clean with a bready lightly sweet taste. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Good carbonation. Medium light body. Overall, it is a light refreshing beer that goes down smooth. A pleasure to drink.

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.

Doghair (255) - 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 (1443) - 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.
