Too sweet, almost sugary and artificial. Thankfully it’s not offensive, and the taste doesn’t insist on sticking around.

On tap at CBF. Poured red with a moderate head and good lacing, with an aroma, with a faint sourness. It had a sweet toasty malt flavor all the way through and was very smooth and fresh tasting.

bottle. Pours bright orange with a quick little white head that settles to a ring. Aroma has nice malt and marmalade scent. Taste has a nice subtle bitterness and sweet malt marmalade mixed throughout. Palate is slick with a fizzy carbonation and a drying finish. Pretty nice.

Outstanding! Great grain aroma with a bit of cookie or cake like breadieness? Great roasted malt flavor that just pores through the whole time. Even finished with that sweet malt flavor lingering. Just a little bit of tart at the end, simple, like a period at the end of sentence. I liked the shit out of it!

Pours a clear amber orange. Not much aroma. Taste is malty & biscuity with little hop finish. Moderate carbonation. Overall a nice Octoberfest. More beer please...

12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a crystal clear, copper, somewhat gold tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is rich and bready malts with a medium sweetness, a light caramel, a touch of toast, and a floral fruitiness with some peaches and a light apple note. Flavor is similar. Rich and bready malts with some toast and a light caramel sweetness. A slight graininess and a light earthy hopping with a bit of a peachy fruitiness before this finishes smooth with a balanced, light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest. Some bready sweet malts with a light caramel and graininess balanced with a clean, earthy hopping and light toast note. Enjoyable enough.

Ok beer. Kinda sweet. Not really appealing. I look for a much bolder flavor from an octoberfest. Good color, no real aroma.

Wheat aroma. Pale brown color. Thick head. Malty flavor with some sweet notes. Abrupt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is absent but not bad, a little sweet. Color is brown and a little cloudy, with a small white head. Taste is sweet and malty, and nice and frothy on the palate.
