Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Light toast and caramel aroma. Clear amber orange color, looks like Steel Reserve in a glass, not that I’d complain. Way over sweet for this style of beer, has candied sugar elements. As such it’s almost cloying, but otherwise smooth and very drinkable. Too light, really. Bomber Bottled 8/14/13.

AirForceHops (6439) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Mugs shows me Clear amber color with no head retention. Smell is real muted, weak malt at best. Taste is a standard Oktoberfest. Bread malt sweetness, with a light toffee malt. Has a slight indescribable hops character. For me; this is a weak effort. Nothing directly wrong with it. However, it just doesn’t have much flavor.

"Oktoberfest" growler distributed from the brewery into a pint. Purchease in western Mass. and enjoyed on a cool autumn evening on the cusp of another October. Taste is sweet up front, malty sweet, caramel rich flow with hints of butternuts and sugared candy. The malts main factor to the pallate is the sweetness. Color is a combo of orange, copper, gold, and hay, perfect for the type. A rather enjoyable brew for the season, and if the abv is accurate one on the higher end of enjoyment for me. It appears Opa knows there Octoberfest quite well, as this brew has remained consistently enjoyable over the years. Glad I finally got around to rating it.

Aroma was malty but with a sneaky bitterness. Flavor was nice and malty but a slight unexplainable fruitiness could be noted. I enjoyed this beer, not the greatest beer of this style I’ve had but vet drinkable

Coppery with small head. Aroma malty, brown sugary. Medium bodied, smooth. Nice malty flavor with hint of caramel but not too sweet. Decent Octoberfest.

Lubiere (13064) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
A golden marzen with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet lactic malt with fruity esters, light chalkyness. In mouth, a sweet weizen like marzen with loads of fruity esters, bananas, light acidity, a bit cloying. Pint at Jacob Wirth as Opa-Opa Oktoberfest, 5.50$.

Malty aroma. Copper-amber with slight white head. Smoothe malty and a bit buttery. A great and accurate oktoberfest beer.
