Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
From the bottle, pours a clear red with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is malty and that of frat house lager. Taste is underwhelming. Malty, thin, quaffable but otherwise just ok.

I could smell the pumpkin/gourd, took half a bottle to get used to. Still not one of my favorites

Pours a very nice honey like amber with a nice white head. Super sweet malt nose with a good dose of roasted nuttiness. Full creamy mouthfeel that finishes out with a nice floral hoppiness balances a sweet biscuity malt presence.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Pours a cloudy redish amber with a thin head along the sides of the glass. The nose is semi sweet with hints of nuts and toasted almond. The flavor is nice and roasted with malted hops and some caramel malt as well. the flavor is nice and it lasts on the palate for a while. Overall it is a better beer then people make it out to be.

12oz bottle pours copper with a nice head. Aromas of bread dough caramel malts and some brown sugar. Flavor is sweet bready and layered. Body is medium with a semi sweet finish

Jabic (588) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Ar: Hint of toasted malt, very clean. Ap: Crystal-clear amber - small light-tan head with decent retention and a sudsy cap of foam. T: Sweet caramel and some toasted malt - medium sweet, some grassy pils - low bitterness, finish is slightly earthy hops and slick caramel - astringency, too. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is dry. O: Decent o-fest, but the caramel flavor is just too prominent, and the astringency is less-than-welcome.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2007
The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear medium dark reddish amber beverage with a modest sized frothy off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left some good lacing on the glass. The aroma was consistent with a good Oktoberfest with good notes of toffee, caramel bread and a hint of floral hops. The body was medium-light with average carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started out just barely sweet and stayed that way through the medium length finish which was slightly on the dry side.

Light amber pour with an off whit head. Aroma of citrus and light hops. Medium light body, accompanied by a brisk, crisp palate. Flavor is lacking, however.
