joeyplush (628) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2009
On tap at Wilmington waterfront. Appearance is dark mahogany with a medium tan head. Aroma and taste are very solid - roasted malt, more robust than the average Oktoberfest.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Hand=bottled bomber courtesy Ty5592! Pours clear dark orange with a thick and lacy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, floral hops. Medium body and full carbonation. The lightly sweet caramel, bread, floral hops come through in the taste, along with a little citrus. Dry floral finish. A little more hoppy than the average Marzen, but not so much that it detracts from the malty goodness of the style.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Tap@WestChester. Largely tasteless, even for the style. No kick at all. Not a fan.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Growler courtesy of JB175. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of caramel, light spice, some pepper. Tastes of caramel, spice, some sweet hints and a touch of vanilla. Excellent!

GMCC2181 (1501) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2008
On tap at the newark location. Color was dark brown. Taste was a sweet, malty beer but still balanced. Average texture and carbonation. I enjoyed this beer and would definetly get another!

lebshiff21 (174) - Skippack, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Too much alcohol (gasp!) It’s 7.7% in Phoenixville. The alchohol overpowers and it’s very sweet, too sweet for an Oktoberfest in my book. Nice aroma, spicy, a little yeasty - first sip takes you by surprise.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Golden color with a moderate head. Sweet, cereal, malty-aroma with some light hops. Flavor is malty with some light sugar, cereal, and spice. Solid fest-brew.

egajdzis (5277) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
[Phoenixville, PA] Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, caramel, toast, toffee, and a bit of citrus. Taste of nuts, toasted dough, caramel, and a rather bitter, dry finish.

Goodgrief (1770) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at Wilmington location: Dark copper head, smallish head and lacing. Caramal malty base with pretty large floral hop base. More hoppy than your typical oktoberfest. Crisp and refreshing with a firm kick. Mild to high carbonation. I liked it.

Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at Iron Hill Newark. Poured a nice clear copper color with nice tan foamy head. Aroma was not very strong, mild spice, nuts and malts. Flavor was also mild with hints of bread, spice, and floral taste. Finished crisp and clean with no traces of alcohol, a decent oktoberfest by Iron Hill.
