crossovert (11600) - Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
473ml can. File under the very dark-colored oktoberfestbiers. Could pass as a dunkel. Struggles to form a head. Aroma fruity and caramally, light floral note. Flavor is sweet, intensely malty, some nuttiness, reminiscent of a bockbier waay heavy for the style.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Can - courtesy of my brother, thanks Kev! Deep orange pour with a smaller head. Caramel sweetness and grain on the nose. Taste is even a little sweeter. Solid beer.

j12601 (9684) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Can at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a very thin white head. Old malt and a touch of grain. Medium bodied, grain and not a lot else. Soft bitterness into the finish. Drinkable, but not a lot going on.

jredmond (7785) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Can at James’s November 2012 tasting. Pours a clear copper body with thin white lacing. Aroma is lightly metallic, toasted grains and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is lightly crisp, medium and carbonated with notes of toasted malts, wheat, a tad grainy, and some muted hops in the finish.

Strykzone (6848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Sampled at the brewery. Clear copper gold with an off white layer of foam. This is surprisiingly spicy and earthy. Nicely hopped. Grainy. Noble hops. A nice version. The malts give this a nice smooth feel.

wlajwl (5937) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Malts and bread in the aroma. The flavor is malty and balanced with a hint of fruit. Not a flavor explosion but a very easy drinking Oktoberfest that is decent in all the right areas.
