Pours a nice clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is toasty malt and a nice bready scent. Flavor is very hoppy for a lager. Alomg with the hops is the big malty flavor you get in the nose. Very drinkable and smooth.

Bottle. Deep amber with a creamy, quickly diminishing head. Subdued, very fine bubbled carboation. Aroma has a backbone of caramel malts, but has lots else to offer, including cider apples and spices with a little grassiness. Whatever strain of lager yeast they use, it has lots more flavors going on than a normal pilsner strain. Flavors remind me of fall, with a caramel appleness(actually a slighty scorched toffee apple) and enough hop character to balance it out, something not always found in malt forward lagers. Dry, give me more to drink finish. Mucho complexities. While I don’t drink a lot of lagers, this is one of the best, if not the best, I’ve ever had. An ale lovers lager. While I am a big fan of Schell’s and their unique flavor, they don’t make a beer that touches this in flavor quality.

12oz bottle BBD 12/01/04 Fiery copper color. Tannish slight head. Toasty malt aroma with some background hops, but I think the yeast shows up more than the hops in the nose. Light bodied. Malty beer. Hops make a nice impression. Lingering malt and hops seem more ale-like than crisp lager-like to me. But that’s fine w/ me. Big carmel note in the finish. Yum, But why do I get some slight alcohol in the end?

Small off white head that dissipates evenly leaving behind some spotty lacing. Clear amber colored brew. Malty nose though a bit of hop spiceyness is evident. Medium body, lightly creamy. Bready and sweet malts, faint roast notes with a light toastiness. Very drinkable lager, probaby the beast lager I’ve had in a long while. To bad you can’t get this stuff all the time.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 Bottle... Crystal clear, deep amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. Light cirrus lacing. The aroma is of toffee and overripe apple. Well-balanced flavor is crisp and lightly bitter with notes of apple, toffee and butterscotch. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Small white head that dissipates quickly leaving behind some spotty lacing. Clear amber colored brew. Malt dominated nose though a bit of hop spiceyness is evident. Medium body, lightly creamy. Bready and sweet malts, faint roast notes with a light toastiness. Mild hops in the background. Finish is medium dry with a lingering maltiness on the palate. Thanks Eric!

Very, very good Seasonal Beer from this growing Brewery. Copper to Amber color with a distinct flavor to it. Recommended for Grilling Brats out on a cool Fall day and enjoying on the backyard deck with Friends. Worth the purchase on this one.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Copper/Amber with a white head. No real distinct aromas. Some malt and hops in the aroma, but not prominent. This is a very malty, smooth, almost creamy beer. The mouthful is great, and the taste is something sweet with malts that leave a film in your mouth.

Had this with dinner at one of local watering holes. Been off the site for a while. Work, work, work. Very nice but not great. Good flavor, full bodied taste. Didn’t taste at all like a Octoberfest beer. to me.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2005 Pours with minimal head, great Oktoberfest. Bubbly copper presence with a sweet aroma with noticeable yeasts and malts. Taste is quite complex! Sweet aftertaste amidst swirling bright fruits and saccharine caramels. This is a great little lager, just wish there was more of it year-round!
