12oz bottle. A nice clear orange with a smallish head at first that fades to a thin rim of foam, along with a little lacing. Aroma is sweet and caramelly. Flavor brings some nice rich caramelly malt with just a little bit of spiciness and very restrained hop character. Really nice smooth palate. Just a very enjoyable Oktoberfest. I’d happily drink a few more of these... mmmbeer (1427) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2010
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured transparent light orange color with tan shading, low carbonation, one finger + foamy white head formed and lasted throughout the tasting. Aroma of a wheat malt, with notes of caramel and grass. Hits the mouth with medium body, malt has a touch of caramel, middle holds up fine, finish is solid with a very light note of bitterness. Good brew, and my 100th Texas brew that I have sampled. Hmm, I wonder what could be beer 101 from Texas... degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Poured from bottle. Rich nose with caramel, fruit, and toast intermingled. Pours a brilliant orange-gold. Roast and brown sugar up front, with a clean bitter finish. Good. BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2010
12oz bottle from Spec’s in Austin. The newest Real Ale release in bottles and, as is the custom in Texas, the label has the prerequisite TABC nonsense on it: "Malt Liquor." Poured a clear, light amber body topped with some soapy head that sticks around quite a while. Aroma is lightly malty sweet, grassy hops, a little funky and some biscuit. Flavors of bready malt, some toffee, roasty, toasted nuts and slightly grassy/herbal hopps in the end. Fairly clean finish leaves you looking for that next sip. Medium mouthfeel and active carbonation. Solid effort. I’m looking forward to drinking more of this when the weather is more O-Fest like. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Tried on tap at the Rockwall Flying Saucer. Pours orangish amber, about like you would expect an Oktoberfest to look. Smell is malty with a little sweetness. Taste is similar. Not the best Oktoberfest out there, but a good representation of the style that will not disappoint you.

A very appealing O-fest. Creamy mouthfeel with wonderful malty goodness. TBS- the malt is not overt in any way, but restrained and subtle. A lovely beer that I wish had been around a few weeks ago when O-fest were what I was craving. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2009

Long-black hair dude: What was the name of your band?
Pours an average amber with an aroma of burnt leaves and roasted malt. Nice, lingering moutihfeel but a thin body. Not bad; I’d drink this again.
On cask. Hazy orange amber with a fading off-white head. Aroma is malty and toasty. Taste is crisp and toasty with some corn notes . Light carbonation, cask mouthfeel. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2009
On tap at the Gingerman Fort Worth. The smell is malts, sweet, grains, and caramel. The look is orange in color, off white decent head. The taste is sweet, malts, caramel, and grainy.
