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.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweeter malty aroma, with toasty and toffee notes, and a light fruity hint. The flavor has sweet malts, toasty notes, a hint of rye, and some light hoppy bitterness. Nice.

9/6/10. On tap. Orange-ish pour, almost looks like a pumpkin beer. Typical grainy smell, but loaded with soapy badness and even some sour... The flavor is bitter and grainy, turns extremely sweet, and then hints at some sort of odd chocolate touch. I wish this brewery would go away.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a light amber color with a white head. The aroma is strong toffee with not too much else. The flavor is toffee, earth and dirt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Like a lot of beer from Magic Hat, the beer is average across the board.

(12oz bottle dated best by Dec 31, 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) clear orange, lingering bubbles. Nose of paper, oxidation, squash and candy corn. Taste of candy corn, alcohol, sweet pumpkin, with a well carbonated creamy finish.
