ElGaucho (2189) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2003
Dry malt aroma with a faint hint of sweetness. Light brownish-orange color like an O-Fest should be. Thin white mostly diminishing head with no visible carbonation. Not a pleasant initial mouthfeel. Very malty and dry. However, some hop zing is is discernable to the trained palate at the back of the tongue. This is the primary redeeming quality of this brew. Somewhat unbalanced and too dry, keeping this from being a very enjoyable brew. The faint hop finish is a nice touch, however.

Nice, fresh malty aroma. Color is beautiful copper orangey color! Carbonation is medium with a nice frothy head. One of the best looking beers I've seen in a while. Taste is malty, somewhat smokey. I don't detect an overabundace of hops, but that is appropriate. Mellow, smooth, clean. Perhaps a bit light in body. Easty to drink, not too bad. This is my first beer from this brewery.

One of the hoppier Octoberfests I have sampled. It's good, because it's beer!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Bottled. Slight thin diminishing head, clear medium-dark amber. Decent balanced caramel/hoppy nose. Slightly on the bitter side for the style, but plenty of malt; not a lot of character though. Finishes medium-sweet. OK.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Golden color, much light than most of the Oktoberfests I’ve had. Good head though. Malty, yet slightly sweet smell. A caramel flavor. Pretty much a one-note beer. Oktoberfests should be more complex than this.

Doesn’t have that hoarhound candy note that Oktoberfests should. Then again, it’s fairly tasty in its own way.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2002
Dark amber/brown color with a thin foamy light tan head. Notes of camamel malt in the nose. Tastes of specialty grains, caramel, buscuit, etc. Lacks the roast/toastiness flavors I crave in this style. Harsh bitter grain/hops finish.

Nice flavor. I wouldn’t mind having a few of those one liter stiens of this.
