BVery (6076) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Clear orange amber pour with a white head. Smells artificial - caramel and grassy hops. Lagery. Taste is a bit cloying. Not digging this.

Clear thin light brown, no head. Vague artificial sweet. Weedy skunkish hops. Earthiness. Dry light bitter finish. Doesnt seem to come together. Did not enjoy unfortunately..

RobertDale (3396) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 4, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours orange gold with a decent white head. Aroma of pine, malt, and caramel. Taste is malt, pine, citrus, and caramel. Not too exciting.

wlajwl (3804) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Aroma is sweetish malts and a hint of hops. The flavor is light citrus, bready malts, a strong hint of berries and a mildly bitter finish.

Very disappointing beer. Was looking for a hoppy, Oktoberfest style beer but this was plain, boring, and just meh. Have been unimpressed so far with MKE Brew Co.

I am not sure why this is called Hoptoberfest. It is not especially hoppy and seems to be pretty much a down-the-middle American festbier. Regardless, it is quite good w/ loads of fresh, rich malt flavor. It is sweet but only very slightly sticky and quite drinkable w/ perky carbonation and a good deal of herbal bitterness in the finish. I might call this a heller bock rather than an Oktoberfest but, regardless, it is done much better than most doestic takes on heavier German styles.

Bottle. Slight hop aroma. Lacing head. A little floral hop taste but not enough. The hops and the oktober fest style almost combine for a nutty finish. Not bad but wanted more "Hop" in the hoptoberfest. Still one of my favorite breweries.

HopAutonomous (12) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2012
On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. I liked the mellow earthy malt flavors but thought they kind of overpowered the hops. Not what I expected but good nonetheless. Maybe call it maltoberfest?

Brownish orange with white head. Hop flavor has mellowed after 6 months in the bottle and actually made it better. Who wants a hoppy OKT?
