2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orange with a beige head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is sweet, malty with caramel, grain, and straw leading to malty sweet finish. Solid for the style, which is not my favorite

Pours clear medium amber with large frothy white head. Aroma is bready, sweet, caramel. Flavor matches with some earthy hops joining in. Medium body. Clean, smooth, light bitterness. LIght sweet and dry finish. Tasty and super drinkable. Very good beer.

Very sweet, malts, caramel.
Surprised by the taste, smoother than I thought it’d be. Sweet and malty, but not as much as the aroma. Earthy hops evens it out. light bitterness, but just the right amount. Very pleased.

Smells like my old fraternity basement. Stale hops and barley. Copper clear color, little head. Not much going on here. Slight sweetness, vegetable, grains.

Pretty good stuff, meng. Served too cold, with a smallish, cream-colored head and good lacing. Aroma was almost nonexistent probably due to my low ability to smell, so all I can do is give benefit of the doubt. Color is a clear copper amber. Flavor’s very nice and to me, so important for an Oktoberfest, not too sweet. It is malty, bread, cracker, some tang, hint of bitter, roast, and dry. Body/carbonation excellent esp. considering temperature. Finish is like flavor, average length, very easy drinking. Solid beer.

12oz bottle thanks to daveymac! Pours a clear deep copper color with a finger of foamy off white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of toast, caramel, hints of citrus, and spice. Taste is very malty, almost syrupy, light citrus notes, grass, yeast, caramel, and spices in the finish.

Bottle. An excellent American take on a great seasonal tradition. This is the beer to watch October baseball with --especially if the Tribe makes it to the postseason!

draft that poured a copper orange color with white head. got the aroma of malt with some bready yeast maybe..the flavor was smooth and very drinkable. the malt roasted or not was phenomenal mix with hops. the hops very mild this is true to style...very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Very bready and toasty malt character, nearly like a toasted sweet bread; some light noble hop notes peek through. Appearance: Nearly still copper with a thin layer of creamy bone coloured head. Flavor: Robust (yes, robust) toasted bread with a noble underpinning; the finish is sweet then quickly dries out. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: A thoroughly pleasing beer all around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with thin white head. Aroma is caramel and bready malt with some floral hops. Taste is bready malt upfront that fades into some sweet caramel notes. Aftertaste is earthy with more bready malt and some lingering floral hops. Palate is medium with some stickiness. Overall a nice oktoberfest beer with nice layers of maltiness and a touch of hops for balance.
