Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint, 6oz bottle into a mug. The bottle has nice list of ingredients use including the malts and hops. The IBUs are listed at 29 but there is no ABV% or freshness date. Appearance: It has a deep slightly orange golden color with lots of carbonation and a good two and a half finger tall head. The head is creamy white and quickly settles to just a thin covering. This thin cap still makes lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma has a firm bready and nutty character with a spicy/floral noble hop presence. Taste/Palate: There is a good bit of deep bready and lightly roasted grain flavor with some good nutty notes and an excellent balance of spicy noble hopes. It finishes with mild hop bitterness and a clean biscuity dryness. The palate is spot on with a firm extremely drinkable medium body and lively carbonation. Notes: To me this is an outstanding example of the style that really captures that German Lager essence. Maybe it’s the malt, maybe it’s the hops or maybe that Free Range Coastal Water they use but it works. Prost!!!

Another rather unique brew from Rogue. Not really a traditional Octoberfest, an ale fruitiness seeps in, still pretty good and close to the original style.

Really a true Fest Beir taste. Just bought a case today and tried it this evening. It’s exactly as is described. Golden Off white head, Malt arome a little dry at the end. Great german style Fest beer.

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a golden body with a couple centimeters white head. The aroma is fruity, almost grape-like. Flavors continue with this theme. Not much going on. Thin body and lively carbonation. Really easy to drink. Decent.

Seems to be pretty light for a Marzen/Oktoberfest brew. It does have a clean, crisp flavor with a dry finish. A decent lager, but nothing fantastic.

Malty Aroma reminiscent of hay or straw. This beer pours a clear golden yellow color with a one inch foamy off-white head. The taste of pilsner malt come through with a zesty sweetness followed by a dry, but not overly hopped finish. Easy drinking german style lager.

(bottle) cloudy orange with small white head; aroma is floral and flowery with bit of honey; light and clean flavour - tasty interpretation of style that I generally don’t like

Reid (1917) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2010
22 oz from Roth’s Sunnyside Market, Salem. $5.49 Slightly hazy dark golden/light amber beer, with a very nice thick ,frothy off white head. Have to give it "4" I am a sucker for a nice head! Aroma, is pretty subdued for a Rogue beer..mostly malty, bready, doughy smells. Taste is pretty nicely malty..same as the aroma with a touch of hop showing..i must say very buscuity very "German" Nice palte to this one..feels very nice and not too thin. Overall i found this very drinkable and even authentic which is saying something for this brewer.

[Tap] Pours a light amber color with a foamy beige head. Faint malty aroma with some bread and light hops. Amber malts in the taste with caramel, biscuit and light brown sugar. Average mouthfeel and low carbonation levels. Sweet malty finish. Kind of one dimensional and rather average.
