22oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of grains, pale malts, light herbal hops, and a hint of diacetyl. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, fizzy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of pale malts, hops, vegetables, and herbs. Light to medium body. Thin, lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Pale malt, diacetyl, and herbal hop finish. Tastes like more of a kolsch than an Oktoberfest/Marzen. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Sampled at Lithy’s Septemberfest Tasting. Clear pale light gold with thin wispy off white head. Nose of butter, and creamed corn. Flavor is much the same. Pretty uneventful, but not bad. Like a sweet fat tire. KyotoLefty (10209) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
Draught at Rogue Ales Public House, Portland.
Faint caramel and amber malt aroma, thin amber color. Very light malt flavor, close to tasteless, actually. Not impressed at all!

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and bready with some dry resin. Flavor is bitter and sour at the beginning with a stale and dry middle and a bitter finish. Not as sweet as I was expecting. bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Hazy golden in color with a very slight head that disappears immediately. Aroma smells of yeast and malt. Slight toffee smell as well. Taste is like spaghetti-o’s, I’m not kidding, I think I got a bad bottle. This is not good.

Clear golden with a medium off white head. Aroma was kind of breadish with malt and grainy accents. Flavour was breadish with malt, caramel and grainy notes. Finished somewhat dry from the vague hops. biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Not very good. Reminded me of a macro, just had that taste to it. It was refreshing though, I almost drank it like a glass of water. Maybe I was just thirsty. JohnnyCougar (19) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours standard tan with a big but thin manila head that dissipates quickly. Hay-malt scent with a light floral hop scent. Slightly sour malty taste, and very little hop aftertaste. Body is a little too light and watery. Doesn’t really stand out from the crowd. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Medium orange pour with barely any head. Aroma of leafy hops and butter. Flavor of cracker, leafy hops and a bit of rubber. Kind of flabby and messy, really doesn’t mesh together well. Lots of vegetables too. Really kind of unpleasant. amg800 (237) - Ada, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Pours nice golden with a hearty white head that disappears quickly, lively carbonation. In the smell there is a hint of breaded caramel, maybe a little citrusy? Taste is mostly sweet with a hint of bitterness that leaves the mouth quickly. Overall an 8.
