TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Benton Harbor, MI). Pours a richer orange golden hue, darker body, lots of orange, good haze with a small frothy white head, dies to a film and laces small. Quite light in hue for the style. Aromas are gentle spice, oranges, bready and doughy malts. Some grass, gentle toast. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a touch mellow, but firm. Flavors offer toast, biscuits, and gentle carmelization. Touches of spice, dry earthy hops, some caramel and spice really hit the middle. Backend is a bit sweet, gentle spice, touches of fruit. Dryness gives it’s best effort, but never really takes over again. A touch sweet. Ok.

Had this on draught at the brewpub. Delicious. Malty, chocolate and a touch of dryness. Outstanding.

patrick767 (3586) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2010
tap at the brewery (warning - my notes are months old) - Pours hazy orange-brown. There’s lots of caramel malt aroma like a chewy caramel candy. The medium body tastes of sweet caramel malt and has a lightly hopped finish. Nice fall brew.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Pale golden pour with white head. The nose is caramel/toffee malt, apples, pears, floral hops, and touches of biscuit. Pretty standard Octoberfest...drinkable by the liter.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2008
On tap. Very drinkable and flavorfull. A rathen thin wheat base with a lot of light flavors mixed in. Just a great balance of floral hops and toasty hay.

Cornfield (5512) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2007
From the tap this pours a pale golden amber body with a good lacing head. It has an aroma of toasted grains, caramel, and fresh apples. These blend together pretty smoothly in the flavor matched by a soft floral/grassy bitterness that keeps the sweetness in check. Quite quaffable.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Yellow with some orange, slim white head. Aroma is lager yeast with some grain. Flavor is grain, light sweet, standard oktoberfest. Medium to full body, no carb. Like a lot of oktoberfests.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Uniformly hazed orangy golden brown with a thing ring of a white head. Fruity to appey malt with a nice bit of floral hops. Some toast. A good bit of sweet malt for a lager. A substantial body with reasonable carbonation. Crisp peppery to floral hops with a round (for a lager) malt with a bit of fruit. Some sweetness fruity. A bit of toast. Fruity finish. Floral.

Tmoney99 (10950) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draft at brewpub. Poured dark hazy anber with an average fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet malty, banana and spice aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet malty flavor with a medium smooth sweet finish of moderate duration.

BBB63 (6119) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2005
On tap at brewery: Coppery hue with a minimal head and little lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and toffee, some bready character, some fruity and grassy esters as well. The taste starts with an apple twang and sweet malty backbone. Mild flowery yeast note and a touch of bitters. Not has heavy or sweet as many in the style due to the use of a pilsner yeast. The feel is crisp and biting, again not to style. This bier is okay and it grew on me. Next year the brewer plans to make it more traditional with Marzen yeast.
