Great Oktoberfest. Slightly cloudy orange with a foamy head of mixed bubbles. Great, rich, toasty, fresh malt character but not too sweet. Earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. This doesn’t take any liberties with the style and does it right top to bottom.

Draft at Atlas. Pours a paler orangey gold with a fluffy and persistent white head. The nose is robust malt graininess, light spicy hops. Very clean and crisp. On tasting, big malt flavor and and a balancing bitterness. Faint herbal hops. Very clean and quite impressive. Some toasty/grainy malt and a faint astringency to dry it out. Pretty great beer.

Aroma is fruit/berries and earthy malts. The flavor is malts, fruit/berries, a hint of spices and a tart/lightly sweet finish.

4 oz. taster at Atlas. Light amber color with a persistent thin layer of foam. Amber malt smell, but then I taste it: a big peppery German hop taste. By now I’m talking to the brewmaster, who says, no it’s not dry- or fresh-hopped, and it’s been in the tank 3-1/2 months. Well, I’m not used to big hops in any Okto, but I am a hop fan even if it might drive a beer off the style sheet.

Had on tap at Atlas. Pours a medium amber color with a small head.

Balanced with aromas of crackers, malts and some grains. Not the most complex, but pretty straight forward.

Medium bodied with a solid feel. Balanced with notes of grains and malts.

A solid Oktoberfest. Very drinkable and pretty straight forward.

New brew apparently at atlas brewery. Enjoyed their other beers and also this. Pours a darker orange. Thin head but sticky. Good malty and earthy aroma, taste also. Nutty and caramel hints too. Liked this and normally not a huge fan of the style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can. Amber with one finger head. Caramel malt, light fruity notes. Moderately sweet. Hop finish is rather understated. I think they could have dialed up the hops a bit and it would have really made this excellent.
