Bottle. Pours a dark copper amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, bread and spices. Flavor was toasted & caramel malts, bread, a hint of toffee and a touch of bitterness with a crisp and dry finish

22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of caramel and cereal malts and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with the malts really strong. Average texture. A decent beer of this style.

portableparty (1921) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy red orange with a kahki soapy head and fades to a tight kahki collar. Aroma is malt and spice. Taste is sweet malt with a bitter pumpkin spice. Palate is medium and sticky which finishes dry and spicy.

MiP (13663) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2011
Draught. Good malt aroma. No head. The flavour is nicely malty with a little sour hint. Seems slightly infected, but not too bad. Slightly spicy hop note.

TaktikMTL (5851) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2010
Bouteille de 22 oz partagée avec MartinT. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel et d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #3338)

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Toasted cereals and spicy hops coalesce in this quenching, simple Oktoberfest.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam surfs the hazy dark amber.
-The finish is quite forgettable, sadly. A tad underhopped?
-The crunchy malt profile makes for a nice body.
-The spiciness and prominent cereals made me hallucinate rye at times...

Bottle.

Dark orange-red, whitish head. Grainy toast aroma. Taste is grainy, some caramel, little else.

Bomber. Poured cloudy medium amber with a short, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted caramel and bready notes accented by rustic earth and leafy hoppage.. really well presented. The flavor found mostly caramel along with some bready notes and a hint of molasses at the core.. light malt-inspired sourness and a hit of dry earthy bitterness around.. a little more sour through the finish, along with some residual sugars. Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. tartness was a little odd, but seemed somewhat intentional (as opposed to many infected bottles I’ve had from the same brewer).. OK feel and flow. Not bad.

Standard fare at first from this Norheast Octoberfest. Sampled out of a bomber, the pour was unfilling and dragged a bit. The color resembeld fresh autumn leaves and seemed to change color the longer it sat in my glass. I liked that. A fresh mix of solid malt and caramel and nuts were rounded out with the sampling. I ingested enough to feel as though I was whisked away to VT where the mountains are as fresh as the beer this time of year. Solid Octoberfest here people.
