jbruner (2316) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with good off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of fresh, grainy malts and slight sweet, german malts. Taste of bready, grainy malts. Good stuff, one of the best oktoberfest beers I have ever had.

rbrazell (1651) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Draft from Fermentation. Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet bready malts with some light honey. Medium bodied with flavors the same as the aroma with a nice piney ending. Pretty solid Oktoberfest.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Appearance: light copper and orange. Soft white head and a solid white collar of foam. Collar branches out along sides of glass rim.
Nose: tangerines, peaches, apricots, and mango. Sweet, chewy, and meaty. Melba crust and spice in the back – cinnamon sticks. Orange rind. Brisk.
Palate: sweet spiced tropical fruits – spice is in the back. Apricots and peach skins – pits for bitterness. Essence of cinnamon and nutmeg weave in and out. Piles of fall leaves in the yard.
Final Thoughts: a nice Floridian take on the Oktoberfest style from Germany. Not too much complexity but the flavors were clean, precise, and blended together nicely.

Tampa, Fl - on tap at the CCB Tasting Room. Medium copper pour, off-white head, nice lace. Earthy aroma, some sweet toffee. Flavor has some caramel, a hint of raisins, some ripening vegetables. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

On tap at DLD 12. That is the most memorable thing about it. It was an average Oktoberfest/Marzen, Glad I got to try something from Cigar City finally.

jcartamdg (1984) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours a golden brown with no head. Aroma is weak with not much going on. Taste is malty and drinkable. Really nice easy drinking beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at the Pony Bars Cigar City Event NYC sept 2012. Nice clear amber beer with a small offwhite lacy head. Malty and floral aroma. Malty, floral, hoppy and some kind of herbal grass flavour. To much floral flavour for me...
