This beer smells like a fart. Once you realize this you can’t get passed it. One of the worst oktoberfest beers available. swigswthwolves (74) - Michigan City, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Not what one would expect from an Octoberfest. Pours light amber with no head. Taste is of light malts and finishes clean. Kind of a boring take on a good style. dbingham (69) - - SEP 27, 2012
Magic Hat claims this beer is a combination of the altbier and marzen styles.Pours a clear, dark gold color, with a three finger head. Strong malt and roasted notes in the aroma. I don’t get hops in the aroma but they are definitely there in the taste, the bitterness standing up to the malt. I don’t get caramel in the palate, probably because of the hop bitterness. This beer most resembles the Blue Point Oktoberfest I reviewed previously. I bit of a thicker mouthfeel however. StanMemTn (59) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer- Cordova. Orange-amber pour. The nose, flavor, and palate are deeper in fruit than most Märzens. Enjoyable in session with other Oktoberfests, though not at the front of the pack. Kco (51) - USA - SEP 18, 2012
Nice golden amber color. Peppery taste slightly bitter. It is drinkable, but is an unremarkable beer.

Fairly unremarkable. Bitter, dry, floral hoppy aroma. Golden amber color with a tinge of red and a little haze to it. A floral bitterness in the middle with a lavender taste that lingers. Full bodied, but a little sticky. Bitter finish with a short drop off. Tough competition, considering the strength of Octoberfests and autumn seasonals, leading to high expectations, but it just doesn’t stack up. VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date. Bottle cap reads: "Be True. Be You." Served in a steidel.
Appearance: Very clear, dark amber color. Almost a finger of head, that quickly fizzles out into a thin ring. No lacing on the glass.
Smell: Not aromatic at all. Slight hints of malt and hops, but that’s about it.
Taste: Quite malty with a helping of hop bitterness. A bit of sweetness in there as well with an overall smoky taste.
Mouthfeel: Not that much carbonation. It’s medium bodied and creamy.
Overall: Not the best seasonal out there, but it’s not like Magic Hat was out to knock everyone out. It’s certainly one of the more interesting ones available. Definitely worth a try. Stracey (39) - Pelham, Alabama, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Ok beer. Pours a nice amber color. Very little aroma. Some toffee. Caramel and toffee taste. A little on the sweet side overall. Very little carbonation. BustyMcJugson (36) - - FEB 20, 2012
traditionally not an oktoberfest brew fan, but I’d say this beer was worth a whirl. Hcgiii (31) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Soft initial taste that does not get much stronger as an octoberfest-style beer. Has a bit of a watery back-end taste.
