UPDATED: NOV 11, 2013 Beautiful copper color, okay head. Very malty taste, a little bitter but decent balance.
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. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Sample at the brewery, light and clean. Very drinkable, Heavy hops for a lager, like jacks abby. Very nice great stuff. wlajwl (7066) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2016
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.

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 (1224) - 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 (1099) - 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.

Tasted blind: This is really an excellent festbier. It’s cloudy orange amber w/ a foamy head. It’s got a big floral hop nose. It’s nice and bitter, dry and slightly fruity. I’d say this is not perfectly style but it’s delicious so that’s good enough for this guy. scarletfire65 (1507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2015
In a flight at Hackney’s Printers Row. Crackery, toasty malt. A bit earthy. Herbal dry finish. Pretty dry for the style.
