Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
I enjoy a good Oktoberfest beer, even when the brewer spells it incorrectly. This one has a handsome pour, an orange/amber body with a sustained eggshell head. The aroma is sweet and caramelly, but the flavor tones down the sweetness and adds a mild earthy/grassy bitterness to balance it out. Enjoyable.

3.3
MaltOne (399) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pours clear copper with white head. Aroma is light yeast. Flavors are yeast/bread, faintly sweet caramel malt, followed by a peppery spice hops. The finish is a blend of the above. Nicely balanced, leaning towards sweet but not too much. Relatively light on the palate but without being watery. Nice.

Copper color and clear. Clean lager nose. Maybe a hint of hop mid palate with a clean finish. Decent lager, not great Oktoberfest.

Bottle: Copper/amber pour with a quick medium off white head.
aroma is toasted malt, caramel,
flavour is toasted malt, caramel, light to medium sweetness with a nutty/woody balance. Bit lighter bodied than other examples, but clean and well balanced and very sessionable even at 5.5.

commonmac (1349) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Pint glass. Copper, almost amber with a small, but diligent head. Lacing is strong. Aroma is super sweet with hints of caramel. Unfortunately it’s downhill after the initial aroma. Taste leans mostly on malt without much balance. Leaves you.with an almost burnt sugar flavor but some bitter notes too. If.they could bottle the aroma, it would be significantly better.

2.6
JonnyMadison (94) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. A pretty boring and straightforward "Octoberfest" lager. The flavor was mild, but smooth, easily drinkable but offering little originality or contrast. Some caramel notes, but very subtle. Many better fall beers out there.
