Pours a clear amber with a minimal white head. Smells of bread, caramel, floral. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet, sweet bready malts with mild hops.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a fairly small head. Little malty and caramel notes in the nose. Little sweet to the taste. Decent brew.

Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Odd brown sugar and munich malt aroma. Amber/copper in color with no foam. Surprisingly hoppy bitter overtones upfront with a pleasant brown sugar and sweet caramel malt backbone. The finish becomes very dry and bitter. Overall, this is a very well done and full bodied Oktoberfest brew with a nice hoppy twist to it. I’d give this a B+ rating.

Pours deep copper with a 2-finger head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, hops, cinnamon, slight butyric acid. Tastes caramel malty, with toffee, brown sugar, and a little butyric acid in the taste. Medium palate.

thetmaxx (729) - West Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Poured from the bottle, aroma is nice caramel malt, flavor is similar. There is kind of a nice winter spice too it. Palate is medium full body. Thin head, no retention

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Draft at Moriartys. Golden brown pour with a good fizzy head. Toasted wheat. Simple syrup. Medium-light body. Bit fuller than most Oktoberfests but not all that complicated or interesting.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Park Place) - Pours a clear amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Faint spotted lacing. Aroma and lavor is toasted caramel malt, light esters, and light herbal hops. Slight lightly sweetened malt finish. Medium body. A nice beer

jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. Maybe the style is wrong, I believe this to be a Oktoberfest. Solid Oktobefrfest, easy to drink and solid but didn’t stand out as much as others I had at Snallygaster.

jrodooo5 (804) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours a clear orange without a head and leaves no lacing. The aroma provides a light sense of malt. The taste is clean and crisp. Nicely balanced and quite drinkable. There’s just nothing that stands out here. There’s a little bit of an interesting flavor in the finish that I can’t quite place but other than that - this beer screams average!
