2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a twist off bottle, been sitting in my garage for about a month. Yes, typical lighter octoberfest beer, fairly enjoyable. Not too bad overall. Does have some of that annoying octofest bitterness in there but it never goes over the top.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - pours light brown with thin tan head and decent lacing. Nose is toasty. Flavor adds a nutty maltiness and light roast. Balanced between sweet and bitter but not pronounced. Lacks the cheesiness of Hudepohl. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized, but rapidly disappearing white head. The aroma is toasted malts, mildly sweet, caramel, with a tiny splash of chemicals. The flavor is pretty standard for an oktoberfest; toasted malts, caramel, light grainy with mild bitterness. This was not very exciting, although I didn’t expect much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent reddish-brown with beige head that quickly dissipates into thin lacing. Smells semi-sweet, malty, and a little doughy. Tastes Like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Better than I expected, and a decent example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased from the Glenway Crossing Remke/Biggs in Cincinnati, Ohio - Although I tasted the original Hudepohl Bock years ago (before Greg Hardmann took over and Boston Brewing tried to kill all of the Cincinnati local beers), this one is a bit different (not as heavy bodied and bitter). Okay, it pours out an orange hued brew into my lager glass (captured from Cincy Beerfest) with a roasted barley aroma and a tall, finely bubbled head of fast fading foam. Tastewise, it has a roasted grain flavor that is somewhat slight to my taste, but it is still a fine beer for an American Oktoberfest!
