Bottle. Sweet malt and a tart cider like aroma. Orange amber with a minimal head. Sweet caramel malt flavor, and a bit of vegetal bitterness in the finish that leaves an odd aftertaste (quinine?). Light to medium, lightly carbonated body.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is sugary malt. Near med body. Flavor is grain with a slight toffee aspect. Sugar lies beneath, but there’s enough hop to almost balance. Worth it for the label.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, grain, leaves, and toasting. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. A few medium-sized particles throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, grain, toasting, corn, and a hint of garbage. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, grain, toast finish.

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. This is about typical for most autumn beers. Poured a middle amber color. Fairly typical aroma and taste for an October beer. Nothing to get excited about.

nwiseman (192) - West Lafayette, Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours translucent dark orange with quickly fading pale head. Faintly sweet and malty nose. Similar taste with a nutty finish. Good carbonation and a bit of a lingering bitterness and warmth. Octoberfests are hardly my favorite, but this seems like a decent representation. Only complaint is that its a little too sweet.

gsmitty80 (1794) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2011
This was a pretty terrible beer. Not too much sweet flavor, almost tasted old and stale. Unenjoyable, it is a shame we bought a case.

jmm635 (860) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Pours medium orange with a thick white head. Aroma or grains, caramel, lager yeast. Sweet flavor with a touch of hops. Medium body, smooth, creamy on the palate.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Bella Vino in Athens, OH. 4400th rating! Pours a clear golden-copper color with a large tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and bitter hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, bitter hops, some faint banana-like fruits. Thin-medium bodied.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Rather typical looking oktoberfest with a bright orange and golden color with a white head atop the beer. Sweet malts and a slitght cereal grain quality in the nose that traslates to the palate as well. Sweet malts and a slight cereal grain in the finish with a hint of crisp hops. Not bad.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Bottle. Aroma has notes of caramel and cereal malts. Nuts and some bread as well. Medium amber hue with an average foamy white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet. Palate is medium bodied and oily soft. Overall a pleasant malty brew.
