22oz bottle. clear ruby with a small head. fresh lychee-like hop aroma. nice fruity hop flavor. medium bodied, estery, and gelatinous. a very nice beer!..but it’s like an amber or red ale more than an oktoberfest...hence oktoberfest ale.

Sienna copper, fluffy tan head. Dry earthy aroma, smells like fall. Great full body, toasty backbone, piney balanced finish. Probably too strong on all fronts, but works very well for me.

A very tasty beer...at first, which is why the palate score is so low. This beer could be called Dry Mouth Ale. The hops make your whole face pucker up, unfortunately. While it tastes delicious, it leaves you feeling like you ate a handful of sand. The Blind Pig Dunkel is a much better beer.

Not like the traditional Octoberfest German type beer. Similar to Mack & Jack’s African Amber. Cloudy with a rich thick head that lasts forever. Abundant hop and malt flavor with a slightly dry finish.

From the bomber bottle, pours a dark clear pale red with a thick white bubbly head. Aroma is deeply earthy malty, smells like an oktoberfester. Smooth flavor at first, giving way to bitter earthiness. Thin but malty, caramel, earthy, leaves just a trace of sweetness when the bitter fades. Pretty good beer.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with a short, dense tan head. Aroma is caramel, dark bread, toasted malt, and spicy hops. Taste is spicy hops, caramel, chewy malt, toasted grains, and dark bread. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, dark bread, toasted grains, sweet malt, spicy hops and soft grassy hops.

Pours a copper red color with a tan lingering head. Slight hop aroma with mostly caramel malt tones. Malt heavy with roasted nutty flavors with caramel notes. A pretty flavorful Octoberfest beer. Nothing spectacular but good nonetheless.

Draft at the Duck & Drake in Leavenworth. Pours a cloudy amber with a lacy white head. A big shot of fruit in the nose, along with some bready malt. Medium body and moderate carbonation. More fruit in the taste, along with some nuts and flowery/herbal hops. There seems to be a lot going on in this beer, and it’s almost chewy by comparison to the other Oktoberfest beers I’ve tried.
