COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Noble Chaos is an Oktoberfest/Marzen (German-style amber lager) with a subtle hop bouquet and toasted caramel malt flavors. It is a well-balanced beer that finishes fresh and clean. With a pleasant nose and medium body, this brew is a taste of the fall season.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 On tap at Ashley’s - Ann Arbor, MI. Aroma is a muddling of grain sugars, earthy spice and nips of Munich. Pours a middle brown, clouded and with tinted head. Flavor is a mostly generic bread malt, with rather gummy hops, a bouquet of light estery fruits, and a earthy chocolate touches. A certain tint of more caramelized or dark Munich malt, which is interesting. Not your typical Munich flavor, this has been messed with (no way...). Finishes dry and clean, with a good tooth of the gummy hops. When i had this, I had no idea what style it was, and I regarded it as a rather generic middle malt beer. So, as a Marzen, that makes sense and it doesn’t do a terrible job, but it could have clarified the malt profile and lager output a little bit.

12oz Bottle. Thanks, Sean! Ah, relief. Big cheerios and whole grain nose, full of classic O-fest malts. Translucent orange pour with a tan head. Flavors are generally sweet and well-defined, but show above-average hoppiness for the style, which I’m enjoying. Fresh, clean, malty and bright. A nice change of pace from the last two beers. Having had this twice now, I’m starting to see it as a classic Michigan Oktoberfest.

Nice clearish brown pour with some good foamy head that lingers for a bit. Some chunky & spotty lacing left behind. Aroma is a bit mild, but some malty and slightly spicey notes. Flavor is more robust with similar notes as the aroma, but just MORE. Very tasty - this beer screams fall. I’d drink this again.

From bottle to tulip glass. Toasted caramel, sweet smell with hints of spice. Clear, light reddish amber color. Pours with white head that dissipates quickly. Definitely malty with some hops coming through. Medium body. Overall, this beer is true to Oktoberfest beers. Easy drinking, you can have quite a few without much problem.

tectactoe (2028) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle: dingy copper with some orange hints, almost fully opaque with a beige head that settles to a foamy ring. Aroma is full fledged caramel malt, sweet buttered bread, fresh & baked, some sweet chocolate-y taffy on the back end. Taste is more of the same; caramel, some toffee, bready sweet malts, light cocoa powder, and a mild taffy-like sweetness. Hops are very faint and add the smallest amount of fruitiness mid-palate with a very mild, finishing bitterness. Very nice O-fest.

Darker amber, decent off white head, nice lacing. Lots of special roast in aroma, faint herbal/spicy hop character in the background. Flavor much the same, lots of roast, herbal/spicy hop backend. Medium carbonation. Interesting take, just not my thing.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2010
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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Hazy amber color pour with a small foamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, toasted nuts, a hint of spicy hops and vanilla. Flavor is slightly sweet and caramely with a bit of hops on the finish. Highly drinkable.

Bottle. Deep amber pour with tan head. Nicely balanced brew, taste of caramel and nuts with an herbal hop finish.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Aroma is hop hey with a touch of malt. Appearance is a dark amber, with little head. Flavor of earthy hops balances well with caramel malt. Great medium palate. Good American oktoberfest with larger hop additions then normal, which i like so this may be a touch biased.
