12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear copper brown with an average (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that reduced down to just a small collar, which produced some fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a stale bread malt and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, maple syrup and a hint of smoke. The taste was malty and lightly sweet with a hint of caramel early on, with the finish having a slightly harsh hop bite, a light toffee sweetness and a mild smoke presence. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time following the swallow, with a mild smoky malt flavor left behind. Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a prickly carbonation. Overall a decent enough tasting Oktoberfest, which had a nice malty-sweet smoky flavor...

Amber/orange pour...absolutely no head at all in either my glass or my friend’s (two different bottles). Nutty aroma. Nutty and caramel flavors...really sweet and some toasty notes. A tad flat, as the initial pour intimated. Just okay.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a hazy amber brown with a thick white head and some lacing, aroma is more sweet than I was expecting with some caramel and malt, the flavor is of light caramel and malt, seems pretty weak overall, meh.

Props for a different spin on the style. The ’magic hat’ essence is here with an octoberfest twist. Soft and drinkable with notes of caramel & that signature magic hat taste. Not a bad one! Quenching

Jblauvs (1339) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Amber pour with a thin head. Aroma is toasty, with some light nuttiness. Flavor is toasted caramel malt with a touch of grassiness and a flutter of "essence of Magic Hat". Simple, nothing extraordinary, but quenching and not offensive.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate head. This is a pretty average Oktoberfest beer, being fairly unremarkable in every way.

A dark reddish hue with a light head. Lots if spice and body. A solid beer for everyday. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Poured a clear amber color with a decent off white head. Aroma is of floral, caramel, toast, toast, nuts, and a faint lemon. Taste is very malty and sweet with a touch of bitterness. Has an almost maple syrup taste to me and too sweet.

Bottle. Sweet caramel malt and light fruity aroma. Hazy amber with a small ivory head. Bready malt, caramel, and vegetal flavor with a mild spicy grassy finish. Light body, moderate carbonation.

Magic Hat claims this beer is a combination of the altbier and marzen styles.Pours a clear, dark gold color, with a three finger head. Strong malt and roasted notes in the aroma. I don’t get hops in the aroma but they are definitely there in the taste, the bitterness standing up to the malt. I don’t get caramel in the palate, probably because of the hop bitterness. This beer most resembles the Blue Point Oktoberfest I reviewed previously. I bit of a thicker mouthfeel however.
