Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes. BlindGuardianco (89) - - MAR 14, 2016
Not very good, fairly mild for the style, not bad per se but tasted more like a normal amber bytemesis (8451) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Can. Pours clear reddish gold, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is kinda gross, malty but also some urine and fecal notes, cardboard. Flavor is better than it smells for sure, medium sweet, minimal bitterness. Light body. jsmanigold (127) - Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Color is amber when poured. Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Slightly sweet malty caramel aroma. Bread flavor appears then quickly goes away with each sip. Larry_Duffman (539) - - DEC 25, 2015
I had it from the bottle. The taste is caramel malt and bread. It’s pretty smooth. It’s a decent interpretation. It’s not anything super special though.

Light on the flavor and a bit watery, which seems to be consistent among the majority of Leinenkiugel's regular selections.

DATE TASTED: November 25, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner pilsner... OCCASION: Thanksgiving executed well and without issue... APPEARANCE: the typical dark orange body with limited effervescence but mostly clear...head diminishes quickly to a foamy eighth-inch off-white ring; lacing is sporadic webbings... AROMA: faint caramel to start; malts are understated; little traces of hops--too simple?.... PALATE: light, slick, soft body that finishes with some fizziness but a blunt, short aftertaste...definitely a drinkable, sessionable beer suited for a warm Thanksgiving such as this... TASTE: burnt toast mixes with caramel to forward a malty experience, though the taste itself is subdued and retreating...little in the way of hops, as suggested by the aroma--sweet without a hint of bitterness...OVERALL: not much to distinguish this from, say, most other fests during the season...not an insult, but notable nonetheless for not being notable... does pair with salty hor d’oeurves and is unobtrusive in its presence...

From the bottle the color is Auburn with orange and very clear the head is white and dissipates to a very thin head after a minute, the aroma is malty a little sweet and caramel, the taste a little more crisp then I would like there are notes of caramel and malts but is not very prevalent throughout the drink, the mouthfeel is thin to medium with a finish that is watery caramel.

pours clear copper with a smallish off white head. Aroma is caramel malt. taste is light malt. Very mild bittersweet finish. Not a top flight oktoberfest, but easy drinking and unoffensive. SpringsLicker (3642) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Clear light gold with a white head.
Sweet caramel aroma.
Sweet, but caramel sweet instead of malty sweet. No hops.
Thin, poor representative of an O’fest most ways you judge it.
