Light aroma: Caramel malt/sweet. Sweet flavor, with caramel malt--which is not as prominent as in the aroma. Apple-ish fruit. A little bit of roast. Lingering bitterness--which is kind of harsh, but there’s not a ton of it.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - SEP 15, 2013
A orange peel color with spice and hops on the nose. It takes like their apricot with less sweetness and more hops. Not really a normal Octoberfest beer, a bit too hoppy for the category without the spices. Not bad though

snoworsummer (2034) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Draft at the Oakland Brewhouse. Pours hazy medium brown with a frothy beige head. Tastes malty and doughy, like grains, nuts, slightly sweet. Medium body and carbonation. Smells musky and malty.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours a beautifully clear light amber with golden highlights, a thick cap of light tan foam that is densely formed. Some sulfur in the nose along with toast, slightly sweet, and slightly bready. No distinguishable hop presence. Tastes like a decent marzen beer, there’s a bit of fruity esters from the yeast and some malt esters as well. Nutty, toasty. Dark fruit comes in at the end of the taste. Not as richly malty as most import Oktoberfests and it really treads closer to Vienna Lager in terms of malt-body. Bitterness is unspecific but smooth. Overall a drinkable Marzen beer that lacks the extra oomph that would separate it from the pack.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Clear medium amber, malty caramel, moderately hoppy finish. Nice for a session.

On tap at Pyramid Alehouse, Seattle... Boring taste... Everything, but not an Oktoberfest beer...

demmbonz (512) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2012
12oz bottle to mini-dimple. Deep brown-amber. Huge pillowy white head that keeps coming. Mild aroma with a little bitter bite. Bready and malty with a little sweetness.

wlajwl (3804) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Aroma is spices and a hint of vegetables. The flavor is malts and a mix of spices/vegetables all the way into the finish.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy brownish amber with a thick head of light tan foam. The nose has some toasted malt and light leafy hop notes. The flavor has a brash up front bitterness that seems at odds with the the toasted malt and a light caramel notes. High carbonation and a long bitter finish seem to make this brew rough around the edges. Certainly not the best Oktoberfest I’ve had.

crhensel (138) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured a deep copper with a very thin off-white head. Nose was very malty with a ht of spice, mainly a little nutmeg and clove. Taste was overall a little bitter with the spice playing in toward the end. Not a bad, but not a remarkable beer either.
