UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Deep gold to burnt orange color is one of the best things about this beer. Faint citrus aroma, but solid, slightly tart taste. A little too smooth and watery. Love the label. Packaging should be a rateable category!

Not great but not awful. Just a little bland.

Beautiful looking beer. Decent taste. I’ve certainly had better Octoberfest beers. Not terrible, but not a favorite.

Pours an orange amber color with very little head. Smell is sweet malt with some caramel. Taste is sweet upfront with some hops taste that ends a little astringent. Mouthfeel is medium weight . Not impossible to drunk but not overly enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle from mix and match six pack bought at Finneytown Kroger. Hazy medium to dark amber hue, sweet toasted malt nose, small white head that slowly left with good lacing, creamy texture, taste much like aroma wih a sugary note. Despite some astringency, a good oktoberfest.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/23/2012. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, golden raisin, toast, toffee, bread, light grass, and herbal hops. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, apple, pear, toast, toffee, nuttiness, bready grain, light grass, floral, and light herbal spiciness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, toffee, bready grain, nuttiness, and light herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and light slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good Oktoberfest style. Nicely robust with good balance of flavors; and very smooth to drink. This was a nicely enjoyable offering.

Good beer. I personally would like just a tiny bit less hop kick to it but otherwise I cannot make any real complaints. Is the first smoky malt beer I’ve had that I didn’t want to clean my tongue after and makes me interested to try others again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated hazy with with yeast swirls orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The complex aroma was floral and musty. thick . The thick flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
