Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Aroma of malt, toast, earth, caramel and slight nut. Taste is much the same with malt, toast, nut, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. Moderate carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of malt and earth forward characteristics.

Sweet malt O-Fest with some caramel malt and citrus bitterness. Blended very well, surprised it took me this long to sample Great Lakes Oktoberfest. bigcat03 (340) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Drank this one straight from the bottle. Caramel, toasty, nutty taste. Has a little bite on the aftertaste. Fairly full mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nicely done! oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint from a bottle.
3.0 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.
3.5 S: Caramel and toastiness, mineral, nuts, apple, rust. Light earthy hops.
3.5 T: Caramel apple, toastiness, nuts. The lager yeast is a bit aggressive lending a dirty earthy component. Also has a dry champagne quality to it.
3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good carbonation level that is fizzy on the tongue. Lightly creamy.
3.25 D: I love GL and I know everyone loves this beer, but for me it’s just slightly above average.

Aroma is sweet malts. Taste has a nice balance. Overall a fairly solid fall beer. Larry_Duffman (618) - - NOV 18, 2015
I poured it from the bottle into a mug. It pours a light amber color with a fluffy white head and lacing. The aroma is barnyard, funk, hay, and grass. The taste is grass, hay, earth, vegetable, and some sweet corn. The palate is light on carbonation. It’s a pretty good interpretation of the style. conway (2210) - - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Copper with 1 finger white head. Dark fruit, nuts, malt, and an unfortunate creamed corn taste. I’m guessing DMS infection? Too bad, would be pretty good otherwise. Will have to try this one again. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass clear amber. Off-White head Noe of sweet malts, citrus, and nuts. Medium in body. Flavor is malts and nuts. Light bitter finish. Patrickctenchi (6809) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Almost clear amber with a short, off-white head.
Orange, leafy aroma.
Taste is sweet orange/toffee malts....
Vanilla, sweet grain malt.
Very malty, but a bit too sweet, however.
