Scouser (238) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pouts an golden orange, with little to no head or lacing. Malty aroma no much to write home about. Nice tasting beer, malty sweet upfront followed by some hopiness, and finish nice and dry, nutty flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1954) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Pours an orange-amber color with a high amount of visible carbonation and a very good head.. The aroma is rather fruity for style, with hints of peach and citrus in addition to the solid malt base. The hops are not so fruity in tasting but do result in a good, bitter-sweet balance. Medium-light body with well-chosen medium-high carbonation.

3 ounce sampler at the Grovetoberfest Miami beer festival 10/13/12. Very good.

Caytinator (958) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pint on tap. Nice caramel color, medium head, decent lacing. It’s billed as an oktoberfest, not sure why it’s an altbier...I really thought it was very good. Lots of malty caramel tastes, barely a hit of hops. Lots of warmth, very enjoyable mouthfeel. High marks for a faithful reproduction that’s almost better than the beer it copies.

OktoberFish is now a good staple for the fest. Taste is very good and smooth. Drinkable, although not adventurous.

Pours a light amber with a nice white head. Has a light malt aroma. Taste has a mix of malt, grain, and yeast.
