bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy amber with a slight beige head. Aroma of mildly roasted caramel with some rather grassy hop. Med body at least. Flavor is mild roast caramel with some fruit and grass. Finishes on the bitter side. Better than many.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Sample at the Seattle brewpub. This brew pours a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt and slight hops. Light to medium body with a sweet caramel malt character and a touch of grassy hops. The finish is short and malty. Slightly above average overall.

Bottle. Lactic caramel/corn syrup malt aroma. Amber with huge light tan head. Amber with moderate off-white head. Sweet caramel malt with moderately bitter weedy herbal flavor. Rough.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 21, 2012
Aroma: clean in lager way malty feel, herbal , tad spicy hop notes as backing. Balanced and with good character.
Look: fine (chill?) haze on amber with creamy medium top.
Taste: medium full bodied with lighter finsh. Bitter hops up front , chewy texture with malty walls. Slight nutty , peppery hop finish. Good , but not most traditional Oktoberfest you might have.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle:   Tawny amber, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Looks decent enough.   Soft bready malts, a touch of nuts and old christmas fruit cake.   Bready on the tongue, fairly smooth, but a little metallic and astringent on the backside.   Finish isn’t terribly smooth.   Seems unfinished and a little raw.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Despite being only 6.7%, it feels like some medicinal heat after the finish.   Looks good, but certainly fools ya when you get it on your tongue.

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a decent small frothy head. Some dusty caramel malts but the lager yeast is coming through pretty strong. Not a great beer.

douglas88 (5800) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle from the Utah state store. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium white head. A sweet malty nose with light hops. Pretty clean, some light bitterness, caramel, lingering crisp flavors in the finish. Decent.
