Butters (3938) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Shared with kristen down at the beach. Pours a clear amber copper with fair off white head that fades quickly. Caramel and toastiness, but also a distinct metallic twinge that took away from the overall experience. Sam adams octoberfest this is not. But not aweful.

12 oz bottle pour amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is the malt a hint of sweetness and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose is like a slightly-stronger version of Traditional Lager. Smells like America. Taste is fairly malty with a touch of bread.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear amber/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stays around a while. There’s also a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells mostly like caramel and toasted malt, along with a little bit of toffee. It tastes like toasted and caramel malt, and also some earthy/grassy hops. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. It’s easy enough to drink! I think it’s a solid Oktoberfest brew, and it’s priced right at $6.99 a six-pack.

Decent for the style which I admit is not my favorite. This pours amber with a small head. The aroma is bread, malt, grain, molasses and a bit of caramel. The flavor has the same with just a touch of hops for balance.

This beer had plenty of potential, with a beautiful, dark amber pour and a fairly thick tan head. The aroma was very inviting, too, with plenty of caramel malt, lightly toasted bread and a hint of crisp hops. But that’s where the good traits in this beer end, unfortunately. The head doesn’t leave much lacing around the glass. The flavors aren’t very well balanced, with some sour notes toward the finish. I did get some toasted malts and light hops, but the sourness really overshadowed the good flavors. I really didn’t expect a whole lot from this beer, in the first place, and it aligned fairly well with those expectations.

Maltsoda (24) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Poured from bottle clear amber color small off white head. Smells has some toasted malt, caramel. Taste toasted, roasted malts at first feels a bit thin, and has a sweet cereal like finish. Overall an easy to drink Oktoberfest I could have a few big steins of this season.

robgibbens (419) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a short head. Looks nice. The aroma is slightly funky with a malty undertone. The taste is malty sweet, but fairly balanced. Finish is crisp and clean. This brew is well made and tastes great. Good quaffable, sessionable brew.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Color a deep amber. Thin off-white head. Malty aroma, with hints of brown sugar. Flavor was malty, in caramel and sugary notes, rounded with a slight bitterness. Not bad, but not the better Marzen.

reggiedunlop (3403) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours a clear dark amber...like maple syrup...with a medium tan head. Aroma is a bit muddled between dry leaves and a skunky/cheap hoppiness...kind of smells like chemical and vomit. Flavor recovers a bit with light caramel and dry leaves...light earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel medium/full with a dry, earthy finish.
