Pours a translucent copper with a white dad of foam that fizzles out quickly. Aroma is grainy and has a sort of rye spiciness to it. That spicy note comes through in tshe taste and rides it out through to the finish. Interesting take on the style.

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a dark amber color with no head or lacing. Aroma was generic lager like. Taste was rather malty with excessive sweetness. Not the greatest brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (2565) - Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a small white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, caramel, toast, biscuit, herbal, and light nuttiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, brown sugar, apple, pear, and herbal. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, brown sugar, herbal, and light fruits on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor robustness and balance; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Oktoberfest! Great flavor balance and robustness; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one, definitely exceeded my expectations.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks JSquire! Pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and grain. Taste is similar with a bit of hops. OK.

Gription79 (2253) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Toasted malts, roasted malts, caramels, toffee, off earthy character. Not the best fest beer that I have had.

doboy (419) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours a clear amber with nice carbonation and a ver light white lacy head. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is sweet malt with a hint of hops. Nice rich mouthfeel. Good aftertaste. Not a bad beer!

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with very little head. Strong malty nose on this that is almost, but not quite, like caramel. Similar malty taste that is just a little overpowering for my taste. Not quite sweet; more of a malty bitterness.
