DrSilverworm (6808) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
4oz on tap at the Lager House. Labeled 5.3%; 19 IBU. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head, leaves good thicker lace. Medium body. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Toasty malts, bready, some caramel. Lightly spicy, peppery. Light to moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter taste. Pretty tasty, easy-drinking, balanced oktoberfest. I’m told they scaled back the malt sweetness a bit this year, seems like a good move.

Sample at the Moerlein Lager House on 9/13/13. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, toast, caramel and lager yeast. Malty and caramelly flavor with a toasted malt and lager yeast finish.

bottle: pours a nice copper color with a light tan head. Aromas are toffee, caramel and a slight fruity citrus. Taste is roasted sweet toffee and some grassiness. Not bad.

Patrickctenchi (3957) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Slightly hazed amber witha thick tan head. Nose is toffee, grainy malt. Taste i weak toffee, malt, with a watery, herbal bitter. Rather unappealing and bland.

shrubber85 (7864) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Corn and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with large off-white head. Sweet toffee malt flavor. Very light hint of lemon in the finish. Okay - nothing great.

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2012
The third beer in my Thursday Night Mediocre-athon. Some light sweetness, some dryish, woody flavors in the finish. Kinda hard to concentrate on, actually.

nearbeer (3812) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2012
12 oz. Clear copper with a spongy foam that tries to last. Nose is old peanut butter and molasses. Taste is metallic molasses, light citrus and stale dry grass. Light-medium body has too much carbonation but seems to fit the style somewhat.

Shag (2623) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Amber color with a beige head. Aroma contains some caramel, citrus, and toffee, The flavor is oktoberfestalicious if that makes sense. The palate is a bit thin. Same stuff different day, Overall an ok session beer.

b3shine (5717) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent burnt-orange with thin white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and malty with a lagerish funkiness. Tastes the same with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.
