Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, nice lacing, off white foamy head. Roasty nose, some caramel in the aroma. Flavor has some caramel. molasses, a hoppy bite and a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Serviceable enough for a tailgate, FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Sampled on draft at the Rivertown Pub this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma was perfume, windex and a bit of tart apple. The flavor was tart with prominent windex and perfume and a bit of tangy apple. The finish was long, sour, tart and bitter. Thin body. Not good at all. Sledutah (7841) - Utah, USA - SEP 12, 2010

I thought I had a bad bottle, so I tried another one out of the sampler 12-pack but it was the same. Footbalmed......
12 oz. bottle from a mixed 12 pack. Copper in color with nearly no head at all. Bready malt, caramel, and vegetable type aroma. The mouthfeel is light to medium, with the standard Marzen flavors. Nothing here to get anybody excited however, no major red flags either. Drinkable. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle at Bigelo’s Bistro. A medium brown with an off white soapy head that quickly dissipates. Not a bad beer at all. Nice fruit, spices that include pepper and cinnamon, and fairly rich malts. I had it with a spicy pizza which did not give the beer a fair chance. Still, it came through as a nice beer.

Bottled. Poured lighter orangey-amber with a short-ish lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up a sweet dose of bready, vienna-ish malts with some vanilla and odd appley-vegetal character around.. caramel and citrus hops also make an appearance.. weird stuff. The flavor found a sweet core of caramel, bready, and honey notes, with tacky fruit and otherwise unidentifiable bitterness around.. a bit acidic in the end.. didn’t like this very much. Light-medium bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. very sweet overall.. candied with an odd complexion. Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 13, 2010

Key Food, Brooklyn six-pack ($10.50): Pours a murky light brown with a very slightly off-white head. The aroma is slightly fruity, with plenty of malts. Certainly does veer away from Oktoberfest style while keeping the basic core of the style. Taste is a little sweet and has a tough caramel, malty backbone, but there is a dry hop bitterness throughout that lingers to the end and the aftertaste as well.
