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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

superspak (2408) - Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2013
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.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 1, 2013
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.

Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel/light bread and light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel/light bread with light smokiness, light grassy hoppyness. OK märzen (could be drier).

Ok brew but not much to really brag about. Not much aroma. Little to no lacing. Sweet in taste and just an average / ok American Oktoberfest beer.

Not what one would expect from an Octoberfest. Pours light amber with no head. Taste is of light malts and finishes clean. Kind of a boring take on a good style.
