Headbanger (2968) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
16oz bottle 4/20/13 (Binny’s Naperville Clearance Rack)-44° in Mug-Pours medium copper with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee, bread, and slight fruit. Taste of malt, fruit, sweetness, and hops. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and not overly malty. I’m not a fan of this style but this is darn tasty.

The beer itself is mild tasting but has a nice session flavor with the malt and mild hops. It's for the season ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2013
500 ml bottle shared. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a semi-hazy pale gold with a nice crop of white foam. In the aroma there is notes of grass, bread, maybe a little straw. The taste is nicely balanced with a leaning toward bitterness. For an oktoberfest, this would fall into the more traditional category. Not overly malty like a lot of the commercial examples. This one is pretty nice. Could drink this pretty regularly.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 Bottle. Pours an orange copper with a small fine frothy white head. Aroma is fresh and floral, some light bread, slight malt sourness, well balanced, excellent. Flavor follows, medium sweetness, floral hops, light bread and sour dough, an excellent drinker, very well balanced and fresh, nice hop presence. Medium bodied, smaller fine sizzling carbonation, easy to drink and very tasty.

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Enjoyed during a closed door tasting session in Green Bay with the brewer, Joe Karls, and later during Fall Fest in Sister Bay, WI. Poured a clear, golden amber with a white, foamy head, and streaks and spots of lacing. The aroma was immediately German malt notes, toastiness, and a hint of noble nose. The flavor added to these a touch of light, sugary sweetness that was properly overshadowed by supportive hop bitterness, and abundant malt. The beer finished subtly dry and smooth. Although a fan of Marzens, this presented a nice, lighter change for this fest seasonal.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2011
I left it out of the cooler for a bit first. Poured with a smallish, cream colored head that soon settle to a small island, a broken ring, and no lace. Color is a clear red orange amber with a bubble trail. Aroma is malt, fruit, hop, caramel. Flavor is much the same as nose with hops and sweetness standling out with a little tang. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is like flavor, a little on the short side, and a hint of alcohol.
