Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Aroma is sweet toasted malts, grain, and a hint of barnyard.. Pours a clear amber color with a mostly diminishing white head and some lacing. Taste leans toward sweet - toasted malts and grain. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, not great but not bad either. Would drink gain.

canary dog (715) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2015
This one is underrated. Surprisingly rich and sweet, if not entirely authentic for the style. Strong malt backbone and sweet finish.

decaturstevo (5582) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Orange/gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma is sweet corn and light earthy tones. Flavor is sweet corn domination and some floral notes on the end. A touch of bitter. Just too much corn for me. A slight hinto oxidation as well. Aggressive carbonation and a bit watery at the end. a drinkable beer

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle from a friend’s house party. Pours a mostly clear, somewhat deep copper-orange with a finger of off-white head and some visible carbonation bubbles. Notes of caramel, sugars, light toast and straw, grass, a little spice, and some deep earthiness, giving it a more German character than many of its American counterparts. But it doesn’t come together as smoothly as many, either. Light-medium bodied, with medium-sharp carbonation. Decent.

Caramel wheaty aroma. Light wheat with a hint of citrus. Thin on the tongue with a late taste of spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle @ RVA 22nd. Lightly hazy light brown. Smells wheaty and lightly citric. Sweet.

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor into a pint glass. A slow, straight pour results in a clear, golden amber appearance with a fluffy off-white head and average dissipating. Mild aroma hinting at toffee, corn, cooked veggies, toasted grain, caramel malt and light earth. Similar flavor, corny, veggie, earthy, light toasty flavor with a bit of noble hop spice. A bit off and hard to drink overall.

Robe ambrée peu de mousse. Arômes de céréales et caramel. Moyennement longue en bouche. Octoberfest médiocre.

SpringsLicker (3288) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Slightly hazy light copper color with a nice off-white head. Sweet nutty, malty aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet with a slight bitterness in the finish that shouldn’t be there. A bit thin.

J_man (834) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Aroma is definitely German marzen lager with a little salty sea air. Beautiful crystal clear golden copper color with a foamy white head. The taste starts off right with toasted malt notes but then a slightly vegetal flavor sneaks in that’s not welcome. There’s also a little rusty note around the edge that’s out of place but not necessarily a bad thing. Body seems a little watery. Ends on a good note with lasting bread and noble hop flavors. Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest beer but there’s room for improvement.
