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

On tap at square burger. Pours a deep ruby orange with a thin white head. The aromas are dough, musk. The mouthfeel is watery and bland with a medium to light body. Cheers!

Smells or sweet corn and some hints of grain. Wheat maybe? The color is almost pink, it’s translucent and lightly carbonated. Tastes lightly malted, with a hint of hops, grassy, unbalanced. The palate is crisp, yet creamy at the palate. Unbalanced and slightly offensive.

Sampled on draft at the Rivertown Pub this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma was perfume, windex and a bit of tart apple. The flavor was tart with prominent windex and perfume and a bit of tangy apple. The finish was long, sour, tart and bitter. Thin body. Not good at all.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a small, thin white head. Aroma of vienna and crystal malt. Some crackers, dark bread. Dusty hops, a sweetness I can’t put my finger one. Flavor of crystal malts, caramel, mild rye, mostly vague and unidentifiable sweetness. Medium bodied. A chore to drink. Blech. After a few, this becomes disgusting. AVOID.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fairly unremarkable. Bitter, dry, floral hoppy aroma. Golden amber color with a tinge of red and a little haze to it. A floral bitterness in the middle with a lavender taste that lingers. Full bodied, but a little sticky. Bitter finish with a short drop off. Tough competition, considering the strength of Octoberfests and autumn seasonals, leading to high expectations, but it just doesn’t stack up.
