Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange color with thin white head that left a bit of lace. Light spicy aroma with a touch of biscuity malt. Flavor was similar with a touch of dried fruit. Subdued bitter finish.

sampled at the brewpub. deep amber. Aroma is of hops, sweet malt. Taste is lightly roasty, hoppy, with caramel sweet malt supporting it. pretty decent.

jimvy (131) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - OCT 2, 2006
On tap at the Wynkoop Brewery 9/27/06. Clear copper color, light tan head. Aroma is some soft malt and light hops. Flavor is well balanced; nice soft malt with some nuttiness upfront, finishes fairly bitter. Medium light body. Overall, a really good everyday beer...soft maltiness of an oktoberfest, yet bitter. If they toned down the bitterness, it might actually pass as an oktoberfest, even with the ale yeast.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2006
I found this to be slightly lacking for the style. Some decent fruit flavors find their way into the mix with some sweet maltiness that turns slightly watery and loses everything it had going for it with a lack of body and flavor.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2005
Couleur rouille, faible mousse beige pale adhérant faiblement à la paroi du verre. Aucun dégagement gazeux apparent lors du service. Timides arômes de céréales et de grains grillés. Saveurs sucrées de grains et pain grillé sur des notes de houblon noble, légèrement fruité et épicé, style Tettnang. Texture aqueuse, corps d’épaisseur mince, carbonatation maladroite et piquante. En fût à la brasserie, Septembre 2005.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Tap at brewery. Pours a deep amber with an aroma of fine malt. Flavor is weak roasted malt followed by a tangy sweetness. Palate is watery. Needs to be more assertive; finishes too watery.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Oktoberfest with ale yeast? Could be interesting, but after tasting, you’d as soon think it’s a gimmick to brew faster. Clear copper-red, diminishing off-white head. Husky, cerealic toasted malts dominate the leafy and herbal hops. Slightly fruity in mouth, soda pop like mouthfeel that manages to develop a minor creaminess, but can’t hide the extreme carbonation. Simply not very tasty.

Draught. Pours mahagony with a rocky tan film. Sweet brown sugar caramel nutty malt (grain, meal) aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a lightly bitter finish with some fruit notes (peach). Thin and medium bodied watery palate.

Had this at the brewery. I liked the amber color of this. Nice and smooth and well-balanced between the malts and the hops.
