Pours deep honey brown with a smallish tan head that fades quickly to a rim and coat. Aroma is caramel and bready malts with nice honey overtones. Taste is corn, bready malts, some caramel, honey up front and noble hops out the back. Finishes quite bitter. Really a high quality Okto for fans of the style. I enjoyed the balance of bitterness.

Drank from a pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegmans. Aromas of sweet malts. Pours a reddish, amber with a little bit of head and a small amount of carbonation. Decent sweetness in the beginning leaving an odd bitter finish.

Tap. Dark red. Nice lingering head. Nose is very "beer." Tastes of good hearty charred malts, sweet caramel. Great oktoberfest.

Pours a soft and translucent copper brown with two fingers of tan head. Nose is malt forward with some appley acetaldehyde notes, malt forward, not too nuanced. Some toasty notes and caramelish sweetness. Rough on the edges. Some biscuity/toasty malt notes in the flavor. Meh

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown, slightly red & mahogany body with a beige-gray head that settles quickly; mild lacing. Aroma of tomato soup, creamed corn, toasted bread, sweet malts.... What? Taste is equally perplexing with a strong stewed tomato & vegetal flavor. Peppery malts, toast, nuts, & a stale yeast aftertaste. Medium bodied. Leave it to Atwater to butcher basically every style of beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a clipped off date of March 2015. Handsome medium amber pour with a big off-white head. The aroma is generally subtle but I pick up some sweet malts and a nutty character more associated with a brown ale. Hops are distant. Medium body. The flavor is more akin to a sweet brown ale than what I expect from an Oktoberfest. Certainly I get malts but they are nutty malts. This would be a great brown ale but as an Oktoberfest it is only above average.

12oz bottle shared. Pours a bright amber color with off white head. Aroma is medium to heavy malt. Flavor is malt and some caramel. Minor hop presence on the end. Decent for what it is.

Pretty terrible October or whatever it wants to be. Very thick and sweet not much else going on.

fonefan (47622) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2013
Clear zedium orange amber colour with a small average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light bread. Flavour is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a long duration, sweet malt, nutty, caramel, bread notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20131111]
