22oz bomber. Pours a deep, brilliant orangey gold with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is sweet and full of bready, toasty munich malts. The flavor follows suit - toasty munich malts with a nice richness and soft toffee malt sweetness. The finish is nice and balanced with spicy hops. The mouthfeel is medium-full in body with a decent level of carbonation. Overall, a very drinkable Oktoberfest beer.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Medium golden pour, fluffy white head. Grainy aroma. Solid malty flavor with some ripening vegetable notes and a hint of caramel. Thickish, rich mouthfeel.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Sampled at Lithy’s Septemberfest Tasting. Clear pale light gold with thin wispy off white head. Nose of butter, and creamed corn. Flavor is much the same. Pretty uneventful, but not bad. Like a sweet fat tire.

SDalkoholic (2144) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle from Pizza Port bottle shop: Created a firm fluffy layer of foam while the liquid was a golden honey hue. In the nose, moderate amount of grained malts and grassy hops but very subdued and going completely unnoticed. The flavor is balanced considerably well with a mild presence of malts and hops, but somehow in my own opinion, I don’t see this beer following true in flavor to the Marzen/Oktoberfest style I know and love. I am happy that this beer somehow made it to San Diego county since Rogue doesn’t distribute anymore like they used too.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. Aroma was malty with a nice toasted quality, floral and slightly spicy hops. Flavor was very smooth and refreshing, a nice bit of caramel and breadiness. Just bitter enough to have a kick in the finish but mostly sweet and smooth with a bit of nuttiness. Pretty light and light bodied for the style but still tasty.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Clear light copper, sudsy head, barely tan. Smells like dried leaves and autumn. Caramel, bread crust, and yest I get some butter. Didn’t want to, but it’s barely there. Finishes very clean with a small amount of lightly toasted sweetness.

clear dark gold with a small, quickly dissipating, white head. moderately sweet, clean, malty aroma. biscuity malts, hint of nuts, butter. light body. not much to rave about here, but solid to say the least.

HonkeyBra (3318) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Medium orange pour with barely any head. Aroma of leafy hops and butter. Flavor of cracker, leafy hops and a bit of rubber. Kind of flabby and messy, really doesn’t mesh together well. Lots of vegetables too. Really kind of unpleasant.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of grains, pale malts, light herbal hops, and a hint of diacetyl. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of pale malts, hops, vegetables, and herbs. Light to medium body. Thin, lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Pale malt, diacetyl, and herbal hop finish. Tastes like more of a kolsch than an Oktoberfest/Marzen.

Sampled at Blacklick Wine and Spirits weekly tasting. The nose on this was floral and grainy.A medium mouthfeel.Definately a lager feel.The right blend of malts and hops.Nothing to impressive stood out here.Fiished off slightly sweet.
