Half liter bottle - nose is caramel and yard weeds. Alsmost crisp. Hoppier than I expect from the style. Something akin to pepper in the finish. Interesting.

The pour is a reasonably heady golden copper. The aroma is slightly malted but more like perfume than anything else. It did not make me think of an Oktoberfest. The body is thin to medium. The taste had an odd yeasty, malty flavor that I could not quite define.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 17, 2012
Pale copper with a firm tan head. Aroma has caramel malts, toasted malt, a bit earthy, and a light spice. Medium-full bodied with a creamy feel. Flavor is full of sweet and toasted malts, a bit of biscuit, earth, a touch of chocolate, and a bit of zesty spice. A really nice lager.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Amber with medium head. Dusty bready malt. Light woody hop. Bit thin on the palate. Toasted malt, biscuity, light caramel and a touch of woody bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From WLVL. Ok third time trying to rate this. Beer buddy acting up. Good example of style. Full malty flavor. Refreshing. Serving: bottle

Bready,but more bold solid malting ,has a slight crystal malt aspect to it,almost a honeyed tea aspect to it,head is very light not much going on in the way of carbonation, taste is a solld malt flavor,the kind that only well done Oktoberfestís can capture. I love that sweet toast,no hop aspect of this style,and Hinterland has captured all the best facets of it.Looks like it might be flat,but it isnt at all,one of those brews you can be content to suck on your tongue for a while after each swallow,hope that doesnt sound wierd

16 oz bottle. Deep amber orange. Decent malt nose and slight noble hop aroma. Taste is far too sweet/caramel for the style.

Nice beer, good all around, already rated, somehow lost the rating. had a rating, so summed up. Nice oct beer. Nice fall flavors, sweet malty bready notes More crisp and hoppy. still with some nice malty notes. The balance is there and it is a comfortable fall beer. Nice

16 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with an inch off-white head that sticked around for a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, light grassy hops and a bit of fruit. It tastes like caramel and bready/grainy malt, green hops and some nuts. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. Itís also smooth and easy to drink. Iíd buy it again, itís a good beer. $9.99 a 4-pack.

Pint bottle shared. Orangish brown color with off white head. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Has a good solid malt backbone. Get some hop action on the back end. Donít feel this is overly hopped. But does have a smooth finish. Almost cloyingly sweet on the back end. Pretty decent for Oktoberfest.
