Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a tall whitish head. The aroma picked up toasted grains and caramel with detergent and fruity hop accents.. some odd, metallic notes too.

12 oz bottle purchased as part of a mix a six at Festival Foods in Onalaska, Wisconsin. The pour is a clear golden with a white head that falls with streaking lacing. The aroma is hay, light phenol, and some husky lightly sweet malt under the hay and yeast. The taste is clean, lightly sweet toasted malt, along with grass hay, and finishes with a tiny hint of yeastiness. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a taste that lingers a bit with grass. Easy enough to drink, certainly an example of the "new" style of Oktoberfest beers.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a tall whitish head. The aroma picked up toasted grains and caramel with detergent and fruity hop accents.. some odd, metallic notes too. The flavor found toasted grains, a touch of fruit, and bready notes at the core, with lightly tart and metallic notes and leafy bitterness around.. finished prickly and a tad sharp. Lighter-bodied and fizzy on the palate.. odd feel with the tart and metallic stuff.. not good.

4 oz. pour from 12 oz. bottle, split with friends while watching the bowl games. Thanks, iradog, for picking this up in Green Bay and sharing. Pours a hazy, dark gold. Aroma is weak, dry, and beery. Otherwise, I don’t have much to say about the smell. Sharp but boring taste has some fruit sweetness. Long, good, dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Forgettable palate. The third of five Thunder River beers I sampled in a row.
