2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
It has very little aroma. It pours a nice amber color, which I expected for this beer. Its very plain. The first sip starts off bland, a hint of malt. Then it finishes with a light bitter taste. That is it, it really had no complexity at all. It has a very light, watery palate. Just really depressing since its one of my favorite breweries. The old Oktoberfest was infinitely better then this.

This toffee and burnt sugar aromatic beer is malty and a little bitter but the notes of apricot definitely give it an interesting taste. The high level of the alcohol content (6.4%) makes it a good beer to be paired with either meatballs, chili or some traditional German food. jrh2254 (121) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Sweet , malty , toffee tones. No hops or bitterness at all. From a beer hawk mystery case. On reflection , not as good as my first bottle.

Bottle. Darker orange color. Very clear. Toasted notes in the aroma. Bready nose. No hops. Definitely sweet; candied. Malty flavor. Finish fades quickly. Slight fruitiness. Not a bad beer, if only slightly out of style. Sdaniel90 (1082) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle, 355ml. Clear sparkling maple, frothy tan head. Metallic, grainy aromas. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet, lightly bitter. Sweet roasted and toffee flavors into a rustic, sticky finish.

This was a very sweet beer and, dare I say it, a bit one dimensional. I felt that the caramel was too strong and overpowered everything else. StoutBeerReviews (172) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Solid tasty brew. Nothing offensive, typical Carmel sweet taste for an Oktoberfest. Tastes sweeter than it smells. R4N5H (1226) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
12oz bottle from Beerhawk, and poured into a snifter on 29-Dec-2016. Clear reddish brown in colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma idk sweet - biscuit malt and toffee. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is sweet and malty. Caramel, spices, hops, bread and dark fruit. Light, drinkable but on the sweet side. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JAN 2, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours a amber/copper color with a thin beige head that last. Taste is of sweet malt, honey, caramel, bread and dark fruit. Sweet malt aroma. Has a decent body. Overall, okay. Too sweet and fruit forward for me. Ronritter (775) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2016
12oz bottle pours orange with medium head sweet malty aroma taste was the same very drinkable
