Aroma is dark fruit, mild sweetness and malts. The flavor is dark fruit/grapes, malts, fruit and a tart/mildly sweet finish.

On draft at Keva sports Center. This one has had some ups and downs for me. Keva is not a beer place so it is this of Lite beer, so this wins every time. This one went from OK to not bad. Might be the setting...

drpimento (2221) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, very light tan head that settles out and a bit of lace. Color is a red amber with no bubble trails. Aroma is malt, barn, a bit of skunk and solvent. Flavor’s much better with rich malt, enough carbonic tang and hop/yeast bitter to balance the malt sweet and a bit of roast to top it off. Body & carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, average length and drinkable. I’d have another. This was a gift from friend Paul B; thanks man!

A maltier than normal version of a marzen. Nothing special but somewhat enjoyable yet.

HonkeyBra (3353) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark amber-- very dark for an octoberfest -- with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, mild nutty notes. Flavor is rich, hearty, and crisp. Nice toffee and nutty notes. Very drinkable. Finishes with a bit of herbal and grassy hops. Medium bodied. Pretty nice.

madvike (2712) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle - Pours dark amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is peanuts, butter, dark bread malt. Taste is thinnish dark bread, more buttery peanut butter, a bit of herbal hops on the finish, Fairly thin body, nice carbonation. Weird beer--the buttery nuttiness really throws me off. Not the best.

Quite dark for an oktoberfest. Nice thin head that lasts and lasts. Odd aroma of sour fruitiness. Taste is sweet and malty with some bitterness.

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Draft at the Players Bar in Madison. Orange brown. Deep sticky malt tones, a pinch off, but maybe leaning towards a Bock? Buttery, off. Amateur lagering. Amber richness, no hop balance. Could be the lines are off in high class establishment as well. Either way, unstellar beer.

Too fruity for an oktoberfest in my opinion. They seem to have butchered the style here.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2010
On tap at Husby’s in Sister Bay, WI. for the annual Fall Fest. Dispensed to a shaker on request, while most of the pours went to plastic. Displayed a deep, brownish amber color, with a creamy beige, almost light tan head, and foamy waves of lacing. The aroma was toasty, almost roasty, with a touch of light caramel sweetness. The flavor contained plenty of smooth malt, moderate hop bitterness, with a creamy mouthfeel and better than medium body. There were a number of Oktoberfests served by vendors on the street, but this was my favorite.
