12 ounce can into dimpled mug, best before 1/3/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavor with no overly estery notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice oktoberfest style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

ibrubeer (260) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle. Slightly sweet aroma. Caramel colored, and cloudy. Off white head, slowly dissipates. Slightly sweet flavor, with a malty taste. Maybe a bit too sweet for style, but I like it. Medium bodied. Overall, a good Oktoberfest.

Awktoberfest (361) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Nice ofest... Smooth and velvety. I like how there is such a variety in every beer style and how every beer in style isn't the same. I like it. Another good summit beer. Definitely not a 1. Crazy kids and their ones... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: less than finger of white head, copper color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: caramel, floral hops, notes of alcohol on exhale. Palate: medium body, soft-moderate carbonation, light sticky texture. Taste: sweet malty caramel, into a floral hops touch a the end, mostly just taste, but a slight bitterness as well. Overall, good balance of malty sweet with the hops in general, but drinkablility is slightly off and for the style, the hops are too pronounced.

dmac (5166) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12oz bottle from Canal’s Rio Grande. Poured an okay looking clear orange/amber with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor is malty with a slight spice touch, wet nut shells, wet bread and amber malts. Medium body with stronger carbonation and a quicker finish on the aftertaste. Meh, not that good.

Tasted this in the store and was much more like I expected for octoberfest. Beer I bought was much different. Seemed to be much hop character and less balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
