Just had this beer a second ago. Very much enjoyed it. Easy drinking caramel taste , floral smell to it, golden/red color, minimal head, light sweetness, medium body, thin feel to the palate. Worth trying more than once.

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.

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 (656) - 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 (4209) - 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
