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.

Picked up a growler of this from the brewery in October. Reviewing from notes Poured from a growler into a pint glass Pours a nice crystal clear copper color with very little off white head that leaves virtually no lacing. Nice malty aroma with some fruity/citrus and caramel notes as well. More spicy hop aroma than I was expecting. Slightly bigger overall nose than I expected, not overwhelminly so, but definately bigger. Very clean tasting beer. A perfect mix of sweet maltyness and slightly bitter hops. Really quite nice and very enjoyable. Well carbinated, with a crisp, clean finish. Definately easy to drink This is probably my favorite example of this style. Very subdued and understated, yet still very interesting and enjoyable.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Had this beer at the brewery taproom on 9/23/10. Reviewed from notes. Poured into a giant mug. Came out a very clear copper/amber color with a large 3-finger creamy off-white head. Light lace stuck behind. Nose of toffee, caramel, light hops. Pretty average. What it lacked in the nose, it made up for in flavor! Semi-sweet candied malts. Notes of toffee, bread, and lightly oily hops on the finish. Excellent aftertaste. Good carbonation level. Easily drinkable. Had I not had to drive home, I would have had another mug, as the first mug was gone before I knew it. Recommend.

ChainGangGuy (4360) - 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.

On tap at Moosehead Bar in Charlotte. Poured a hazy copper color with a thick off-white head that lingered well and left good lacing. Nose was a pleasant mix of malty sweet caramel and hoppy floral, with some bread and earth undertones. Mouthfeel was full, somewhat tingly and slightly chewy, and the taste then accentuated the malty caramel and earth of the nose. Rounded off to a long pleasant finish, making this a most fine Oktoberfest beer.

ross (2078) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2011
On tap at Maxwell’s Tavern. Pours out a dark orange color with a white head on it. Smell is malty and rich with a little bit of hop presence. Taste sweet and fairly smooth. Easy to drink and kind of sweet. Went well with the burger, but I dont think I could drink more than one of these.

A good Octoberfest, but average by most standards. Very sessionable. A good beer to share with friends.
