maxwelldeux (3548) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose has a lot of caramel and a bit of corn and grains coming through. Taste is a tad sweet with some nice caramel and a bit of toasting. Not bad.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Copper amber, small fluffy head. Light caramel aroma and toasted bread. Clean yet robust, plenty of toasted caramel body to enjoy, yet it’s not heavy or assertive. Less is more here.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2008
The color of aged amber with a musty head. Aroma of easy caramel and malt. and cider. Flavor is mildly malty, but quite fruity--moreso than one would expect or desire of the style. Strong apple notes, estery. Apple cider vinegar aroma and flavor notes become more pronounced. Ok--but not true to style.

jcwattsrugger (11079) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2007
on tap-pours a retaining thin light tan head and amber color. Aroma is caramel-medium malt, light fruit. Taste is caramel-medium malt, light fruit, yeast?

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Labeled as Oktoberfest. I am assuming it is the same beer. This beer pours a hazy dark orange w some brown hues with no head. Aroma is sweet caramel, toast, and some nuts. Flavor is very sweet and malty. Lots of caramel malts. A little metal in there too. Definitley reminded me of an ale. Like a dark wheat ale or something along this line. Either way, it was pretty tasty. I liked it.

after4ever (6111) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Draft at the brewery, under the name "Oktoberfest." Medium amber. Essentially headless and laceless by the time I got it to the table. Mild nose, moderate attack. Caramel, toast, and nuts across the mid palate, with a big wheaty nutty finish. Tasty and to style, this is a nice one. Rick said that night he wants all his beers to style. What’s also apparent is that he doesn’t want to tear anyone’s heads off; he’s in the front lines of converting BMC drinkers. While they tend to be way more filling, way more full-bodied than many of the 201-level beers that BMCers graduate to, the taste profiles of Rick’s beers tend to be very polite and gentle. This one’s a little ballsier--tasty stuff!

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear coppery amber with a white head. Taste and aroma of bread, caramel and flowers with almost no bitterness.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2006
Draught No head; orange-amber beer. Bit plasticky nose, with sweet malts, some fruitiness... esters? Sweet, bready, breadcrust, and again some fruity flavours, ending alcoholic. Medium bodied, too cold for the alcohol to come through. It has some ale-like qualities which are strange for a bottom-fermenting beer - or isn’t is one?
