4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has a really nice grainy and malty texture to it. Caramel, roast, light banana and spice are the most prevelent scents. Appearance is a very cloudy orangish brown with a medium slightly off white head. Taste has got a really nice an complex texture, malt, grain, light fruit, hops, and spice are intermingled together quite well. Palate is medium carbonation and a light roasted malt aftertaste that is enjoyable. Overall. I think this is a really nice and proper to style Oktoberfest beers. Cheers!

Transferring my rating from Beer Advocate. Pretty good stuff. Not the biggest fan of the style but I thought it had a nice quenching quality to it.

Hazy copper brown pour with a 1-finger, off-white head. The aroma is sweet and nutty with notes of toasted almond, toast, light cocoa, and subtle zesty noble hops. The flavor is very nutty and toasty upfront, with some chalky cocoa powder in the middle and finishing with spicy, floral hop bitterness. Soft, clean medium body with moderate carbonation. It has a nice deep roasty full flavored character for an Oktoberfest style.

Pours a gorgeous cloudy orange gold. Smells of banana and wheat, more like a wheat then a marzen to me. Tasted very metallic and bready. It had a strange aftertaste.

Pours a dark amber/mahogany with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts. Flavor is more malty than caramel, with a low dose of bitterness. More on the bitter side than sweet. Interesting, and not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from drake party store. Amber brown pour. Thin offwhite head that began disappearing immediately. Typical Octoberfest beer smells: root beer, deep caramel and malt. Low carbonation. Malt predominates overall but that's just the side of the spectrum this beer lies on, it's not the focus. Flavors of Carmel and roasted nuts, it's bright like cola. Finish is smooth, more roasted nuts and caramel.

12 oz bottle. Pours reddy copper in colour, moderate off white head. Aroma and taste are nice sweet caramel malt, and nice noble hops. Prob a little hoppy for the style, but very drinkable! Good stuff!

Bottle. Brownish. Light malt nose. Tastes of sweeter malts, but less caramely. Still has a decent yeast presence to mellow out the sweetness.
