Can from a sixer bought on clearance at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and corn. Malty and grainy flavor with caramel accents before a light noble hop finish.

12 ounce can into dimpled mug, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and solid balance of dark/bready malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. A fair bit of yeast fruitiness, but it isn’t overpowering. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice oktoberfest style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of caramel and grass. Flavor the same, overly sweet and stale.

Serviceable oketoberfest that conveniently comes in a can. A little thin but more importantly, go steelers.

Can from wegmans. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has bready and biscuity notes. The taste is sweet biscuit, light today. Ok.

Orange colored body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Light semi-sweet bready malts, orange zest, light grass, and florals. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, gentle malty sweetness through, smooth, refreshing finish.

DrSilverworm (8567) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2014
12oz can, from Dutch’s. Mostly clear orange color. Bigger off-white head. Leaves great, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Nice full body. Good mix of toasty and light caramel malt, some mild but appreciated light peppery hop to it to balance out the taste... Moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Light slick finish. Pretty good oktoberfest. Tasty to swig even on it’s own, even without food.
