Nice amber color with a decent amounr of head. Very bready and sweet, but a little undercarbonated.

Pours a light amber with a foamy white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is an odd mix of vegetal and caramel and bread malts. Flavor is slightly sweet caramel and bread malts. Except for that aroma, this is quite good.

Bulk_Carrier (5073) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - OCT 2, 2015
This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a slight transparency about it. A light one finger white foamy head dissipated within less than about thirty seconds. Foamy rings of lacing glazed around the glass. The aroma had a big sweet maltiness with a sweet nutty and toffee combination that smelled nicely. The taste was mainly sweet with a light roastiness in the nuts and toffee. There’s a quick semi-sweet/roasty nutty aftertaste running into the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sweet to crisp sessionability about it. Carbonation was fairly light allowing the sweet nuttiness to roll over my tongue in a semi-sticky sort of way. Overall, nice Oktoberfest, I’d have again.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2015
12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Some short ropes of lace at first, but it all fades to minimal by the end. Up front, some creamed corn, and vegetable, plus caramel. Not really a pleasant start, though not awful. Bit of pepperiness in the flavor. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Not bad but a subpar oktoberfest.

Shot (500) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin head. Aromas of citrus and sweet malt. Flavors are muted citrus, caramel, cut grass and sweet corn. Subtle breadiness. Not a very solid Oktoberfest beer. This tastes like a macro brewery’s version of a microbrew.

From a bottle. Thanks Joe! Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet malt, corn, musky, fruity, light apple. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like malt, apple, and cherry.

sonnycheeba (5849) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear, pale copper with a trace of fizzy white head. Aroma is some bready and copper malts, some lager yeast esters, and faint spice. Flavor is dry malts, light caramel, some light hops, and some faint yeast notes. Light body and medium carbonation.

Sweet malt and heavy caramel. Medium body, but not a strong or even noticeable presence. I honestly don’t love it...

Draft. Brown pour with tan head. Sweet and malty flavors, nothing too different. Light spice, fruit and malty aromas.
