crossovert (11424) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Billed as an "Ourtoberfest" *rollseyes*. It pours pretty much like a typical maerzen, it has an orangeish amber body with a foamy white head. The head dissipates very quickly and without lacing. The smell is slightly nutty, sweet, with a hint of mineral water. The flavor is sweet, there is almost a pickle spice character to it. There is a light breadiness and hop presence. There isn’t much going on here, a simple brew, but not in a pleasurable way. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-12-2010 17:57:22

Copper pour. Aroma of caramel, butter, ivory soap, cereal. Flavor is very sweet, lots of grain, creamed corn, butter, splenda. Not so good.

Bottle. Toffee malt aroma. Hazy amber color with moderate head. Sweet toffee and lightly bitter grass flavor. Funky.

hopscotch (10658) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle… Clear, brilliant amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The sweet, fruity aroma offers freshly baked black bread, biscuit, tropical fruits and a subdued note of medium sherry. I’m unable to pull any smoked malt out of this. Medium to full-bodied and fatty with tingly carbonation. The flavor leans sweet, but there’s some nice bitterness that keeps the sugar under control. Bittersweet, malty finish with a kiss of honey.

djd07 (10568) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a wet doughy malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a toasty malt and caramel with a nice earthy finish. Easy to drink, a decent vienna from Magic Hat.

DocLock (10000) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Pours dark straw with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, brown sugar, hops, and tastes of Wheaties, brown sugar, grainy malt. Not terribly complex.

12oz bottle, thanks to robotopera and his fall Magic Hat variety pack. Mostly clear dark orange color, light tan head fading to minimal. Some head. This isn’t as bready and pretzel-y as I’m used to from oktoberfests, and I guess that makes sense now that I see here on ratebeer that this is actually an amber ale. It’s still bready with a tiny bit of spice, like the oktoberfest beers that I’ve sampled, but this one has a definite, distinct, and appropriate hop addition gives a needed balance to those oktoberfests. I’m seeing the toffee, caramel, and rye as well, now that I read the description. Carbonation has a high crest. Pretty drinkable, though. One of the better oktoberfests I’ve tried, that isn’t really an oktoberfest.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Gold yellow pour. Thin white head. Aroma of pepper and malt. Taste is malty but a little bland.

phaleslu (9428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2010
12 oz. bottle shared on a Royale Tuesday beer showcase. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a small, sticky white head that leaves some foam and a ring atop the beer. Aroma of sweet malts, booze, cardboard, soda water, and honey. The flavor is much the same, with some straw. Sharp, foamy carbonation provides a bite and a seltzer mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied. This would have been better smoothed out, but as is, it just isn’t that interesting.
