What the hell is this? This is nothing like a fest beer, or anything oktoberfest at all. Did they invent this? It’s just a roasty malty amber. I don’t think this has anything to do with late September festivals. It’s sort of like if you’re expecting to sip milk and you drink orange juice, I thought it was bad only because it was nothing like an oktoberfest. Not a bad beer itself but what the heck?

Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is caramel, toast and nuts. Taste is sweet with trace bitters. Crisp and refreshing

Mild beer. Malty flavor and decent floral tones. Not bad but doesn't feel like a fall beer.

Not a bad oktoberfest. Oranish, defined by its sweet maltiness. Some orange and a lot of caramel.

arkurzynski (1544) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Amber orange. Nose of sweet toasted malt and mild hops. Flavor is mid to heavy toasted malt and biscuit with a mild sweetness in the middle with medium hop bitterness in the finish. Decent.

onceblind (4330) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Clear deep darkish copper with a thin light beige head. Good nose of biscuity caramel. The flavor has this biscuity caramelly nuttiness that’s off dry and toasty and smooth and everything right about marzens. A bit deeper and a bit more "molassesy" than a standard Oktoberfest but I love it.

Sledutah (4938) - Utah, USA - OCT 14, 2014
12oz bottle picked up at The Grapevine
Clear golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is malty, sweet caramel and spices. Taste of caramel and sweet malts
Not for me

Beachmaster (155) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a medium orange/amber, with a large white head that quickly fades. fair lacing. Nose is virtually nonexistent. Taste is flat, not much flavor there. Just tasted hop finish. Pretty mediocre beer for Widmer Bros. Too bad-I was expecting better.
