Deep amber with a whispy tan head. Fresh grain and malt aroma and taste. Serviceable oktoberfest. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
(Draught) clear rich orange with a ring of off-white bubbles. Nose of candi sugar, pumpkin mash, and cinnamon. Taste of caramel, pumpernickel bread, raw grain mash, and a pumpkin linger. Grain linger seems odd, sunflower seed oil in the palate finish. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2011
On tap at the brewpub during North by Northwest’s 2011 Oktoberfest party. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2008
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of toffee and bread notes with a little bit of grass and some sugary sweetness. The flavor is has a little bit of toasted and caramel malt and some nuttyness, as well as some earth and grass from the hops. There is a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of alcohol. A very easy drinking Oktoberfest, definitely a beer you can have more than one of. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Tap at brewpub. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Pours an average amber with a nose of air and sweet leaves with mud. Flavor is a malty hop nut. Average mouthfeel. Eh.
(1 liter mug filled from tap at brewery Oktoberfest celebration on October 4, 2008) Kicked off my experience at the North By Northwest Oktoberfest celebration with a liter of their Oktoberfest. Went down really easy. Finished in the same amount of time it took my friends to finish their .5 liter servings. To be able to drink a brew that fast and easy says something about the beer. It’s light-bodied, but just hefty enough to be able to drink lots while still enjoying the beer. Great head, nice aroma, smooth and cool.

(Tap @ NXNW): Pale amber-orange body, clear. White foamy head. Malty aroma. Good malt taste, not acidic. Roasted, red flavor. Slight acidic aftertaste. Clean & refreshing. Okay taste. Lagery after it warms up. lb4lb (2632) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Light clear copper with a small white creamy head. Smell is of apple juice. Taste begins w/ a fair amount of tartness, some light sweetness in the form of a toasty malt, and mild bitterness in the finish. Nice and refreshing. A good example of the style, and a touch hoppier than expected which I really liked. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Clear coppery orange, thin fizzy white head. After warming from the icy pour, the nose leaned towards a spicy, grainy toasted caramel tone, with a faint hint of earthiness. Flavor was much the same with a decent late hop kick for balance. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, spicy hop finish. A good session fest brew...

Pour is nice copper amber with a dense tan head...smell was sweet and grainy...taste had some nice caramel sweetness with a lot of the signature grainy flavor...finish was much hoppier than most Oktobers...definately a better NXNW brew... Andrew196 (2015) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2002
A tad better than the Marzen. Not good in the beginning....finish of cereal...got much better as it warmed....awkward ceral taste turned to a pleasant malty taste with notes of alcohol and hops....typical NXNW beer.
