UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 Serving: from growler--purchased at Georgetown Brewing Co.
Aroma: moderate floral hop.
Appearance: average-sized, rocky, off-white, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, light-amber body.
Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and moderately sweet, caramel finish with average duration.
Palate: medium-bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: great aroma, but a bit too sweet for my taste.

Copper with a white head. Initial hop blast is softened in the middle with medium caramel malts and then a relatively strong hop finish. Hoppier than the standard festbier. Good.

Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Is it Tomtober already?!? Creeps up on you. Hazy amber pour with a half moon of active fizz head. Rich, sugary caramel aroma. Flavor is a rich caramel as well, with a soft buried spice. Cool malt, brown sugar. Cookie spice late finish. Pretty good addition to the style.

Nose is dry and toasty with light caramel and a little earthiness. Golden amber, thin head. The flavor is dry and toasty with a little sweetness on the mid palate and a clean crisp finish. Decent.

On tap at the Fremont Oktoberfest Seattle, WA. Pours a decent ruby, clear, with a touch of foam. Aroma is of crackers, sweet light caramel, and a bit of butterscotch. Tastes a bit caramel sweet (slightly out of style), a bit flat as far as the malt goes. Finishes fairly dry with a slight astringent character. Not a prime example of a malty oktoberfest bier, but a decent entry nevertheless.
