12oz bottle. Poured an orange/amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, some grains, nutty notes. Flavor was nice grain notes, malts. Pretty clean. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle (from backlog). Caramel color without much aroma. Bready with some spices. Thin and not that interesting. Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Appearance: Pours with a head that doesn’t last long. The color of the beer is just what you’d expect from the usual Oktoberfest -- perfectly like Autumn. Looks nice, but lacking overall.
Smell: Meh. Sweet, caramel-like, and malty. Again, average.
Taste/feel: I wonder if these other reviews got a skunked bottle or theirs just wasn’t fresh ... I’m getting an above average taste here. The first sip is INCREDIBLY bready tasting. Honestly, almost TOO much so. After that though, you get a super tasty malty Oktoberfest with a very nice mouthfeel.
I haven’t had many Oktoberfests (Actually, I’ve only had this and Sam Adams’ up to this point), but I like this one quite a bit more than Sam’s. The carbonation and texture and the overall taste. I don’t know about you other guys, but I enjoy this one a good bit. Would love to try it on tap. wlajwl (6811) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma is grainy/bready malts and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is malts, mild sweetness, fruit and somewhat thin in body. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Caramel colored, clear, light head. Deep malty taste, a little a acerbic, lingering finish. Just ok.
