12 ounce bottle from the Fall sampler. Pours a clear amber color with a medium fizzy tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, a bit of grain and a grassy hop finish. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, grassy hops and a faint bit of green apple. Thin-medium bodied. Decent.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2011
Deep amber pour with a thick sticky white head. the nose is a bit sweet and toasty. A touch of chewy toffee. A bit of light breadiness. A little bit of lightly dusty malt on the base. It’s a tad too sweet despite the dark malt base. A bit of crystal malt that I find a bit off. It’s not terrible, but it’s not terribly good either.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Sample at Barley’s Smokehouse. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing. Mild hops and toasted malt aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of sweet malt, hops and touches of fruit. The finish is caramel malt with a sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

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.

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

crossovert (7738) - 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

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottled. Poured lighter orangey-amber with a short-ish lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up a sweet dose of bready, vienna-ish malts with some vanilla and odd appley-vegetal character around.. caramel and citrus hops also make an appearance.. weird stuff. The flavor found a sweet core of caramel, bready, and honey notes, with tacky fruit and otherwise unidentifiable bitterness around.. a bit acidic in the end.. didn’t like this very much. Light-medium bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. very sweet overall.. candied with an odd complexion.

Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Pours clear copper with white head. The mild aroma seems to lightly swirl with notes of caramel, sweet malts, sugar coated red apple wedges, a touch of citrus cotton candy and some herbs. The taste is pretty rich with sweet caramel, sweet malts, stewed raisins, ripe red apples, spiciness and some yeast too.
