Clear, deep golden pour with a white head. The aroma has toasty malt with bread and light caramel notes that match the sweet taste. It has a medium body with slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. jahshuwuh (567) - USA - SEP 27, 2015
A clear warm golden color with finger of white head that fizzles down to a few bubbles on the surface. Smell is orange, cinnamon, all spice, wheat, malt. Taste is a light sweet caramel with a touch of the spices from the smell, clean crisp, a flour like taste is the finish with a honey butter biscuit and some wheat. Easy drinker, perfect for the fall weather.

2015 bottle. Clear copper/amber in color with a thin white head. Light bready aroma with some caramel. Taste is biscuit and bread, caramel and a little herbal bitterness on the back end. Lively carbonation and drying on the tongue.

Poured from bottle into English pint glass. One inch foamy head with a darkish amber color. Mellow tasting, flavor is fleeting, lacking the taste of a true Octoberfest beer. Tastes more like a jacked up American made pilsner. Will not try/ buy this beer again. I guess I expected more from this brewery than what I received.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Blind: Amber orange, foam head. There is something sort of savory and off in the nose. Lightly sweet w/ slightly harsh earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.

Original(3.1): This one is a near miss in my opinion. It has a nice overall malt character but it strikes me as being a bit too sweet and sticky to be truly drinkable and that is what it needs to be to be a great example of this style. It is fair to say this is a cut above what many less lager-centric craft breweries make but it is still not quite all there.
This might very well be my favorite Octoberfest. Light brown body. Nice fresh brew day malt aroma. Crisp but very flavorful malt taste. Just a great example of an Octoberfest beer from Wisconsin. schmittaj (16) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Pretty good orange color. Not bad on flavor, hops are well balanced, but for an Oktoberfest I am looking for more in the way of malts. Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2015
This one was better than I thought it would be. Hoppy and lightly malty and is very easy to drink. Pours reddish brown in color. Smells malty. Had at feezors.
