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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
