Relatively mild. This oktoberfest brew just didn’t speak to me, it came across as tried and not true.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap at Vintage. Poured clear, lighter amber with a short cap of white head. The aroma was weak with caramel and lesser fruity notes “leading”.. soft and pleasant, though. This one was tasty.. toasted caramel and pale malts at the core with crisp, leafy bitterness around.. a hit of citrus and a touch of prickly alcohol on the finish. Light-medium bodied, crisp, and well-balanced on the palate.. good stuff.

BVery (6971) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Clear amber pour with a small thin dense ring of a white head. Sweet malt aroma, not very big. Medium-light palate. Sweet caramel malt flavor, nice.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2010
On draught at the Vintage brewery/brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper colored brew with an off-white head that slowly dissipates and some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of toffee and some roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, with caramel malt, toffee and a hint of floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet, malty with a mild bitterness. Hard to determine if this is a Vienna or Munich style Märzen, or one of the best hybrid Oktoberfests I’ve encountered.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Draft at Vintage. Filtered orange-brown. Doughy aroma, smooth malt backbone, but displays some off flavors. Sweet, with a sharp pepper flavor, sort of throws it off. Soapy. Some mellow fruity amber malt tones. Unimpressive.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2011
On tap at Erv’s Mug. Crystal clear amber with a medium tan head. Aroma of toffee, malt and mild noble hops. Taste of caramel, toffee, light fruit and faint noble hops. Among the better blandtoberfests I’ve had this season.

madvike (2905) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at the brewpub - For someone that doesn’t really like many Octoberfests, this one was very nice. Pours light amber with a small white head. Really bready malt on the nose, with some milkiness. Tons of bold malt flavor, with a lot of graininess and a touch of hops on the finish. Really rich and a touch sweet--like I said, this is the type of Oktoberfest that I like.

cbfobes (2344) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2010
I believe this is supposed to be spelled Oktoberfest, had this on tap at Vintage, pours a light clear amber with a thin white head, the aroma is fairly faint and boring, the flavor has a nice malt backbone and even has a hint of hops in the finish, not bad.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is amber with a khaki head. Aroma is bready with underlying notes of toffee and earthy/floral hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same. This was well made but probably the least impressive offering Vintage had for the day. Then again, i’ve never really been a fan of octoberfest beers.

Tap at Sweet Mullets. Burnt copper. Very sweet and malty and delicious. Just a slight hop bitterness.
