Finally tracked this down on tap at a tasting. Attractive pour--a nice orange with moderate head and lacing. Aroma was nothing terribly special. Was much cleaner and lighter bodied than many of the Oktoberfest beers I’ve tried. As such, found it quite easy to drink and very enjoyable. Prost!

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not too much aroma. Absolutely no head. Humm. Has a strong sweet caramel flavor, but not much else other than the sweetness. A bit boring.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 From tap, pours a clear rich orange, medium head and lacing. A touch watery, light body and very smooth. REVISIT- New year, new batch. Tasting the first keg to come in for 2011’s COOP Oktoberfest, tastes a bit lighter than last year’s with a slightly watery taste again compared to last year. Still good though, glad it’s already here in early August.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Pours bright orange in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, malts and some grass. The taste is of caramel malts, bread, grains and a crisp hop finish. Also included an odd sour flavor much like their wheat. It is not as hidden and more pronounced as a flaw in here though compared to the wheat. Still has a decent flavor profile if you ignore that. The palate / mouthfeel here was quite good for the style. I’ll try it again to see if anything is different in the future. Certainly has potential though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at 51st Speakeasy. Pour is a medium dark amber. Thin, dissipating head. Aroma has faint hints of caramel, toasted malt and hops, although in general is a bit weak. Flavor is better with a solid malt presence, mainly caramel, with a underlying toasted malt and subtle hint of hops. Mouthfeel is smooth. Overall a decent Oktoberfest as far as American brewery attempts go.
