At the brewpub. Dark gold, not much aroma, smooth balanced profile... Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It smells like breakfast, just not like any you’ve ever had. Wheaties in shallow pool of subdued grape juice, finished Tyler Florence style with a drizzle of hazelnut oil.

Yes, it is unusual to be drinking this style so early in the year. So yes, it is a holdover from the Fall. And yes, there is a good reason. A reason so good it deserves more time than I have at the moment, so no, I won’t be explaining it just yet.

But let’s do talk about the beer. I opine regularly (some would say too regularly and others would say “opine, more like whine you fucking baby”) about balance, and my perceived perception that some beer or another doesn’t have it. That’s not an issue here. It’s delicate, just sweet, lightly spiced and almost chewy. What’s most prominent is the breadiness, generic on its own but for the Disaronno like touch.

I like all these things as much as the next man. The dilemma of course is that I want to sip, yet feel compelled to gulp. And that’s not really how I want to enjoy my beer. A bit more heft – weight balance rather than flavor balance – would make this something really special.

thornecb (4373) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours orange-tinged amber into a Sam glass. Pancake head with mediur retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Caramel, hay and bread aromas. Slightly off-setting chemical aroma. Medium bodied with sweet caramel upfront and a slightly acidic bitter roasted nut finish.

puboflyons (2133) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 6, 2012
From the 22 fl.oz. bottle. 2012 edition. It pours a fairly transparent copper-amber color with a small head that simmers down eventually. The aroma is bready and malty but low in the hop character. The body is medium and smooth. The taste begins sweet and malty with a low bitterness at the end. It really isn’t extraordinary but it is a very true-to-style, drinkable Okoberfest.

AirForceHops (3144) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Labeled as Oktoberfest (don’t know what this name is??) Mugs shows semi- transparent amber color with respectable head retention. Nose has mostly malt with a touch of German hops. Body has a nice malty backbone with a light hop, crisp bitterness and a light, wheaty flavor. Not much carbonation, but not totally flat.

jimhilt (2402) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pours a two finger off-white head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Nutmeg and bready nose and flavor is light malty sweetness, bready. Aftertaste has some bitterness. $8.99 for a 22oz bottle from Glen Beverage Glen, NH. ABV is 6.0%.

Deep amber in color with a small off-white head.Aroma is an amazing blendof caramel and rich bready toasted malt. Flavor is balanced with toasted malt coming through, good full body.A very good Okt/Mar, wish i could have some more.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Sample at VTBrewfest - Poured a nice reddish-amber in color with an off-white head that hung around. Aroma was malty; particularly of medium roasted malt. Flavor was nicely balanced between hop bitterness and malt sweet. Quite thick in the mouth; excellent body. Very good beer...
