Kind of bland and flavorless. Malt doesn't really jump out at you and the hops are just kind of a background bitterness. Not the best fest bier.
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color. Large foamy beige head. Toasted malt nose. Slightly tangy caramel malt flavor. Notes of toasted bread and light hops. Lacks the oomph of the German Oktoberfests, but pleasant nonetheless. Drake (13654) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Keg at the brewpub, 8/16/16. Clear copper, large creamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of toasted malt and mild stone fruit. The taste is caramel, citrus, toasted malts. Medium bodied. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2016
Pours a medium amber with a thin off-white head.
Malty, lightly roasted aroma, caramel, nuts, diacetyl, cardboard.
Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty taste, caramel, light roast, slightly nutty, butterscotch, hints of cardboard.
Decent balance, short finish. Meh. (2016-11-15) Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Poured into a mug, the appearance has a sly burnt orange to amber color yielding a slim white foamy finger’s worth of head atop of the beer.
The aroma starts with a weird vegetal bitterness over some burnt toast. Caramel malts seem burnt too.
The flavor, well, I don’t know what it wants to be, is it sweet or bitter? Hard to say, but it’s definitely not really sweet or bitter, it’s bland, I hate to use that word, but I don’t have any other words to try and describe the flavor. There’s not even any nuttiness. No aftertaste or finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sly sessionability about it but it slightly does feel like there’s something missing. Low carbonation.
Overall, not sure what happened here, but everything seems off to me. I would only have again if I knew the bottle is fresh or on tap. Vignale (3785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2016
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad, aningen disig med lågt skum som ganska snart försvinner helt. Söt maltig doft med honung, knäck och karmell. Smakbilden är väldigt maltig med säd och sirapslimpa med lite välmogen frukt och aningen maltsyrlighet. Rejäl kropp men ändå lite kantig och ömsom platt och ömsom vass. Jag skulle vilja gilla den här men den funkar inte hela vägen. Ok

On bottle from Systembolaget in Strømstad. Deep golden
Color, good foam. Medium/light aroma intensity; light honey, malt
And some fruitiness along with boiled vegetables. Medium light body & complexity . A little
On the sweet side, but ok bitterness. Fair enough beer

Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty smell, with caramel and some overly ripe fruits. Similar taste, noticeable sweetness. Full body for the style. Drinkable. NikkTwist (3200) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Draft at Bainbridge. Mostly clear copper pour with a just a quick slim show of white foam. Medium caramel malts. Lightly toasted raisin bread. Hint of orange marmalade. Clean lager finish. Have had worse. anders37 (26251) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2016
