Love those Foothills Beers! Pours a dark amber with a nice off white head that lasts and lasts. Nice carbonation. Great malty taste with a hint of hops. Thick and velvety in the mouth, great aftertaste as you think of the next sip! A really nice Oktoberfest Bier!!!!!

Clear brown pour with good head on tap at a pickup curling game. About the most Oktoberfest aromas I could imagine, roasted nuts and all. Flavor is roasted for sure with an aftertaste if heavy cocoa and caramel. Yuck. Not my thing. Oktoberfest in the wrong direction.

Bottle. Perfect amber color. Aroma is praline and hints of can’t corn. Taste is slightly sweet "Payday" like with toast and a slight hoppy finish.

Sample at 201 Central. Dark amber in color. Aroma of honey, caramel, some coffee. Nice roasted malt up front with light bitter hops to finish. Very drinkable beer. Overall, it tastes like a less hoppy, sweeter version of their Hoppyum IPA.

Beerenberger (1489) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Malt forward aroma. Toffee and hints of nuts. A dark amber pour with a quickly disappearing head and no lacing. The taste is mildly sweet up front with welcomed hop bitterness dominating the finish. Caramel and toffee with suggestions of nuts. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this is a very drinkable Oktoberfest/Marzen. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From tap at brewery. Wow, better then expected. Pours a deep amber color with thin head. Notes of nuts, malt and toffee. Taste follows and is well balanced. Very drinkable.

Poured a deep, clear amber with nice lace. Malty nose and in the mouth it is a ton of malty goodness.

A really good seasonal. This brewery is excellent. Really hearty and pours a dark red. Has a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is an aroma of malts and hints of almonds. It is a darker amber color, but the head is not very strong. There is a pleasant combination of almonds, bread, caramel, and other flavors. It’s a pleasant combination.

draft poured dark orange with white head. nice malty aroma with what I thought initially a bit of cereal funky grainy, just a bit different and I couldn’t put my finger on it till I asked. the flavor was solid malty goodness and that sweetness which turned out to be toffee and roasted cashews and almonds nice little twist.
