Poured from 12 oz. bottle labeled "Pecatonica Oktoberfest" (but aliased to Minhas Oktoberfest in Ratebeer). Clear, dark coppery orange with an off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, light toast and a hint of orange. Taste of biscuit, sweet caramel, allspice and again, just a hint of orange. Malty and overly sweet for an Oktoberfest. The flavor deteriorates as it warms. Eventually a little tartness shows up. Medium body and medium carbonation. The brewer should toss out this recipe. Surely, a commercial brewer could produce a much better Oktoberfest with a modicum of effort. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OMG, please save your time and money. The beer is horrible. It’s cheap for a reason. No quality. ALL THE BEER is watery dish-water. Sure, one can buy this from Trader Joe’s for a low price, but really, what you get is nothing on par to quality. I’d rather put the extra money towards a pint or six pack of something more proven and worthwhile. This beer is made cheap for a reason and its to sell out. The owners, both non brew-masters by the way, just some trust fund rich kids, are slinging this dishwater to steal your money. I mean go on the website, it shows the guy walking out of his Escalade SUV and the interviews with him and the sister "co-owner" show the trust fund babies they are...both siblings are narcissistic and ridiculous. I would give this a zero rating if I could. I really am not a troll, I speak from the heart...Oktoberfest 2013 - Present??? WTF?? how about just end it man, so poser beyond poser of beer. I’d rather have a sam adams. my word this beer is horrible.

Underwhelming. Watery. Finish was unpleasant. Not a good effort. Bottled as pecatonica. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at my brothers. Pours a deep amber/copper wit white head. Nose is toast and biscuits, mild herbal noble hop aromas. On taste, more of the bready toast notes. Minimal hopping. Decent Oktoberfest.

Bottle. Pour is cloudy red brown, minimal head. Aroma of bread, caramel, banana, and yeast. Taste is sweet and musty. OK

Dispensed to plastic as Pecatonica Oktoberfest at the Lion’s Club concession for the Sister Bay WI. Fall Fest. Showed a clear walnut color, with a decent layer of off white/light tan head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was subtle toast, fair malt, with a hint of caramel sweetness. Light to medium bodied, with appropriate carbonation, and a moderate hop bitterness that was mildly earthy. A passably sessionable seasonal that successfully washed down the brats.

Nice deep amber pout with a fizzy, off white head. Aroma of sweet bread, caramely, candy corn. Taste is sweet malts, candy corn, and a bit of earthy, leaf funk. You know standard marzen flavor. Don't let the leaf funk comment put you off, this is a nice tasting beer. Medium to full bodied with a solid finish. Went well with a stew and the cooling autumn weather. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Labelled as Petactonica. Btw fuck these idiot inbred fucks, in it for the trend. FUCK YOU. Didn’t pour it but it is unadulterated booze, caramel, and nuts in the smell. SMells like it was lagered for about 5 minutes. Flavor is similiar, with some added metallic character. FUCK YOU Petactonica you fucking inbred fucks. Stop cashing in on this trend.

Bottled under the label “Pecatonica Oktoberfest” This pours a clear, amber color with a foamy, off-white head. There are some malts and slight spices in the aroma. The taste is very bland and slightly sour. Not the type of malty flavor you would expect and there is not much spice to the flavor either. It finishes fairly unpleasant and rather chalky. But that’s kind of what I expected from a beer that contracted with Minhas to brew their beer for them.
