16floz can, dated 08.17.2017 (I am 99% certain this BOD, but they chose a stupid message instead of specifying), $1.75 unit cost, imperial nonic glass. Whiffs of rusty bucket comes from a body that is amber-bronze. The head is stable and off-white.
Although not traditional to style this is a good beer. Herbal hop bitterness, while mild, provides a countering balance to the more characteristic toasted bread flavor. Not as sweet as other ocktoberfests, and that is okay. A meaty fine drinker. Niko100 (3014) - Chicago, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2017

Had from a 16oz can. Decent Octoberfest beer. Golden pour with big head. Malty lager beer. Taste is fresh & clean aftertaste. No bitterness with 6% alcohol.

Deep copper to light umber in color. Taller, fine bubbled head. Decent lace. Only a hint of malt behind the fresh hops aromas. The hops have a sweet herbal quality. Sweet start. Pale to very lightly toasted malt. Mild biscuit with a touch of marmalade. Not a bad lager, leaning toward a lager hoppy lager. Still rather crisp. A interesting take on the style.

Can at home should've saved for tomorrow but alas. Cooper pour. Nose is malt and caramel. Tastes of caramel, malt, earth, bready light fruit. Fairly sticky. Thicker bodied than most o-fest. Enjoyable.

Aroma is grainy malts, mild caramel and a hint of molasses. The flavor is caramel, light frui,slightly grainy malts and a tart/mildly hoppy finish. ChiGuy68 (634) - Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Tasted on tap at Quencher’s Salon. It poured a clear amber with a whisky head. Mild malt aroma with a slightly sweet spiced October taste with a hint of rye. Tasty fall brew. markducommun (1232) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Very slightly hazy orange, mild white head. Sweet orange citrus, light spices, mild grain. Fairly strong bitterness, some sweetness through the finish. Heavier body, some oiliness. Decently carbonated. Longer finish. Good. gschrade (1112) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2016
I had this at Global Brew. Pours copper with a white head. Taste slightly sweet, spice, touch of caramel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.
