COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The quintessential Ueberseasonal. Everybody gets excited when the leaves change color and the nights get cooler. Not because it’s fall...the real reason is that they know Mecktoberfest is coming.

Lubiere (10551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
A golden Marzen with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty caramel malt with light German grassy hops. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light nutty note, pleasant, if a bit ordinary. On tap at brewery.

jackl (5061) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Tap @ Carolina Beer Co. Light amber with a cream white head. Attractive. Nose is a bit off-putting. Unwashed old dish towel with a bit of candy corn and caramel-dipped apples. Bread. Taste is more palatable. Sweet bread, sugar. Mellow straw dryness on the finish. Light body, soft carb. OK.

ChainGangGuy (4426) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Appearance: Dispensed a clear, darkened amber-gold body with a spumed, off-white head. Smell: Toasted whole-grain bread and a fragrance of spicy noble German hops above some lighter crackery tones and far-off traces of sweet-scented caramel. Taste: Maltiness of moderately toasted bread given a touch of sweet caramel, maybe even a hint of honey as well. Spicy, floral German hops, lightly bitter and more than enough to balance things out. Soft, faint fruitiness. Drying finish with a delicate mix of spicy hops and maltiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Very drinkable. A clean, satisfying O-fest. Keep up the good German work, OMB.

ben4321 (4260) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Location: Draft at CLT, 11/25/14

Aroma: The nose is light caramel and bready malts, some grainy notes, and mild hops
Appearance: This one appears amber in color, some golden notes, with an off-white head on top
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, not overly sweet, bread/grains with a light balancing hop bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, fairly easy drinking, with a mid-plus carbonation
Overall Impression: I had a few of these on draft over the "season," with pretty much all of those being in the airport. It always left me the same impression, which is that it is not bad for OMB, and it is probably better than their flagship copper that you find everywhere, but it isn’t anything exciting. (Note: I have the copper rated as a 3.3, but that is from 2012, and I haven’t felt the same about it when I’ve had it recently. It probably needs a re-rate, and I’d probably have it more in the high 2s to 3 range if I rated it today.)

Pint at CLT airport. Clear topaz with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is at first sour, then lightly toasted grain and caramel. Taste is sweet toasted grain and just a touch of dry grass and sour apple. Light body is well balanced and has light carbonation.

maxwelldeux (3872) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Draught at the airport. Pours a lighter amber color with a moderate white head. Some grains and maltiness to the nose of this, with both some of the malty bitterness and a hint of sweetness to the taste.

LilBeerDoctor (3507) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malts and sweet malts. Flavor is mostly bready malts, some sweet fruits, and a little hop bitterness. Overall a pretty good Oktoberfest. 7/4/7/3/14 (3.5/5)

Kinz (3376) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Draft at the Charlotte airport. Yay business travel. Poured a medium to light amber orange, slight head. Aroma slight of toasted malt. Flavor matched - balancing bitterness, appropriate lack of hop flavor. Actually very clean and nicely done, very much to style. Good job guys.

theisti (3321) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 17, 2010
1/2 pint Kolsch type glass at the tasting room at the Brewery. Pour is a lighter amber golden with a dirty white head the falls with nice lacing. Aroma is nutty, cooking caramel, and a bit of chemical cleaner. Sort of ok to start, but smelled a bit off in the back. As it warmed, even got some garlic. Taste is the malt up front - nice nutty mild sweetness, then it turns towards sort of a soapy chemical sweetness that fortunately clears a touch as it opens up. Palate is medium to light bodied, sort of silky texture with an unpleasant chemical sweet aftertaste.
