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.

(Draft, Rich O’s) Pours an amber-brown body with a medium-sized creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, mild hops, and some flaorls. Flavor of malts, caramel, and cinnamon.

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.

3fourths (7886) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Rogue Pub Eugene. Clear dark orange color with a very small head. Light carbonation, but that may have been the fault of the pub. Spicy flavor, nutty, mellow sweet honey and brown sugar, with a festive leaf and apple flavor. Nose is sweet with a festive fall spice flavor, like fall leaves and nutmeg.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Draught (Rogue Alehouse Issaquah) pours amber, biased towards the orange side, fairly clear, small frothy off-white head, light carbonation, with light lacing.   Malty & nutty aroma... quite different from most Rogue brews.   Slightly sweet and quite malty on the tongue.   Great body and mouthfeel.   This is perhaps the best Oktoberfest that I have had this year.   Finishes smooth with lingering sweet malts.   I would have better notes but seeing as this one isn’t bottled I got rather upset.   Highly recommended.

swoopjones (5666) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2008
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Part of the Johns Locker Series. Pours a light & clean orange gold. Slight toasty bready aroma but not really much here. Taste has some caramel nuttiness to it. Lacking the smoothness that a heavier malt character would provide. Rather abrupt alcohol/ bitter bite. Disappointing

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Tap @ The Front Door: Pours a dark amber color with a nice head and light lacing. The nose has a slight adjunct nose with light lagery florals and a moderate alcohol note. The pacman yeast is a little lose on the style. Lacking the nutty and caramelly notes that make this type of beer. The alcohol bites through the tail with a slight plum and jammy note. I’ve always wanted to try this, now that I have, I’m sorry I did.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draught at Funky Buddha. Clear warm orange-amber with small head. Sweet malty aroma is bready. Smooth, clean mouthfeel. Very sweet, too sweet for me but has long body that ends in an acceptable level of sweetness. Sweet, sweet, and just drinkable.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2008
I had this on tap at Sanctuary in Iowa City, it was called Rogue Oktoberfest, bu I assume that this was the beer. A dark gold to near amber colored body wth a light khaki head on top. The aroma was strong wit fresh bread and some caramel. There was also some almond nuttiness. The taste was toffee and light iced tea. A nice earthy finish with some carrots. Decent overall, but nothing special.
