GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Draft at The Sanctuary in Iowa City. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was thick and white, but dissipated relatively quickly. So so nose consisting of hay, dry grains, and a touch of honey. Light bodied and dry. Bordering on watery. Not much in the way of malt. Not as I had expected. I tasted hay and a little honey. Not all that great.

nearbeer (3781) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2008
JLS Draft at Barley’s Knoxville location. Clear orange-gold with a small head. Sour apple, yeast and rough grain aroma. Flavor is the same with some light dry grass and lemon tartness. Light body is watery and finishes harshly, but only slightly dryish. Not my favorite style, but this is the worst Oktoberfest beer I can recall: couldn’t finish this one. Where’s the malt?

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Port 82!!! On tap at Capone’s as J.L.S. Octoberfest. Poured a medium and clear golden/amber color wtih a small sized off white head. Aromas of toasted bread, earthy, and some caramel. Tastes of toast, earthy, light citrus, caramel, and bread. Lacing left on the glass.

Suttree (5190) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2008
At Barley’s, Knoxville. Orange, thin but sturdy white head. Aroma is a little bit fruity and a lot grainy. Flavor is bready and toasty, with a bit more alcohol heat than I expected. Finish is harsh bitterness. Kinda ventures into malt liquor territory, actually.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Draught at Barley’s in Knoxville (as Anniversary Oktoberfest in the JLS series; I’ll follow Oakes’ lead and put it here). Pours clear copper with small whitish head. The aroma is sweetish with some caramel, autumnal autumnal spiciness, a hint of brown sugar, and a little tannin. The flavor is a little spicy, with clove, allspice, and a hint of pepper. There is a sweetish munich malt backbone with some candyish and bready notes. There’s a moderate earthy hop profile, though less distinct than the usual Rogue beers. Wood and leaves in the finish. Okay, but lacks definition.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Pretty sure this was it, though without any recent ratings I’m a little skeptical. On tap at Funky Buddha. Light amber colour. Toasty-crackerlike fresh malt nose. Somewhat sweet on the palate, and becomes moreso as the glass goes. It moves towards being less toasty and more caramelly, and doesn’t really finish well at all. Needs some dryness, even if just from toasty malts.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Tap. Pours with a nice head but a thin, dark amber body. Aroma is subtle clove. Diluted clove and banana flavors with a nutty finish. Average mouthfeel. Forgettable.

Draft at Emerald Coast Beerfest. Poured a dark amber color with a good off-white head. slightly sweet but, not overly so. Nice malty flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. I like Maerzen beers and this is a pretty tasty one.

I had this one on draft at the Emerald Coast Brew Fest in Pensacola, FL. I haven’t previously been a big fan of Marzen beers, but some I’ve had recently have me changing my mind. Nice amber pour with good head. Not too sweet like some Marzens can be. Very smooth and drinkable. Never had a Rogue beer I didnt like.
