[Tap] Darker shade of amber. Aroma of toasted grains and hints of nutmeg. Heavy caramel taste. Sweet finish. Not getting much spice in here. OK I guess, but not a ton happening here. Tasting notes from 1/2014. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle- gusher. Hazy to cloudy amber with an overly large head, excessive carbonation. Sour toasty malt aroma --- I’m anticipating infection before my first taste. Yup, sour infected toasty malt flavor. Light, overly carbonated body. ICEatALAMO (1349) - Troy, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Draft. The color is a nice amber. The aroma is strong spiced malt. The taste is spot on for an Oktoberfest. Easy to drink and roasted malt flavor.

Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate frothy light beige head, somewhat decent lacing.   Nose is of a grainy/malty aspect, touch of sourness.   On the tongue its malty, bready, a bit husky, some sour aspect that I don’t think is intended.   A Fall seasonal that is already broken?   The sourness shouldnt be there.   A bit of a candyish sweetness, pixie stix but without the dry aspect.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes bready, nutty, a touch sour, and not like what any Amber Ale or Oktoberfest should be.   Blech.... alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown with a small off white head. The aroma had caramel and buttery toffee, light herbs, grass with a hint of toasted bread. The flavor had caramel malts, light toast, light herbs with a smooth character.

12oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Mildly hazy caramel / brown color. Thin khaki head, decent lace. Smooth, creamy texture. Lighter carbonation, medium body. Interesting aroma - light spice, apple pie, chocolate. Very unusual oktoberfest, much more rich and full-bodied. Light sweet taste, little bitter, spice. Interesting, definitely stands out b3shine (8802) - Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks solid; a murky copperish with thin off-white lacing. Smells like Worther’s candies. Tastes decent, but not as inviting as it smells. Average on the palate. Meh. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap at Greenbush Brewpub. Murky brown with an off-white head, amber lowlights and mild lacing. Aroma of toffee, malt, grains and mild maple. Taste of toffee, roasted malt, dark fruits and mild tannins. Tmoney99 (14368) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Poured hazy brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate aroma of toasted sweet malt. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

Easily the worst from this brewery. An oktoberfest has to be a lager, and as an ale this one isn’t that great. Watery, light hop flavor, malty, crappy for the most part.
