Dark copper color with a white foamy head. A full flavor of sweet fruity esters. The body is full and well-rounded, with a nice mellow finish. My favorite Octoberfest ... one of best things about fall in the Twin Cities.

Pours a nice deep amber color with off-white head. Caramel malt, roast, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt flavors.

Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some caramel, biscuity and toasted malt, some earthy notes. Nose was pretty weak. Worth trying once.

Nice but just that. Quite thin and more like a lager. Some hints of Märzen style but just that much.

9/29/12 poured from bottle into pint glass. Mild but pleasing aroma. Almost no head. Reddish-bronze in color. Taste comes on smooth. Beautiful roasted (?) malt flavor. Sweet finish and aftertaste. I would drink this beer year round if it was available. Yummy! I want to order many of these. ---Rated via the Gridfather
