Nothing really eccentric here, but its a solid offering from a mid-range brewery. Malty sweetness is highlighted. Caramel and bread. Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz glass. Malty and pleasant easy to drink. Not much going on here. Ok. PintPiner (22) - Maple Grove, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Malty aroma. Thin head with very little lacing. Clear bronze color. Low carbonation with light body & mouthfeel and a sweet malty flavor w subtle hints of caramel.

Tap - small foamy head, clear light copper color, nutty malty aroma and flavor, not overly sweet like many Oktoberfest beers (that's good), full bodied, overall pretty good

Slightly underwhelming. I’ll take other Octoberfest beers over this one pretty much any time.

Orange pour from the bottle. Thin dissipating head. Earthy and Carmel aroma. Syrupy palate. Sweet and somewhat malty. Not a fan TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark copper color with no head. Flavor is very smooth and sweet, lots of caramel shines through. Minimal carbonation, very drinkable. A decent Octoberfest beer wilnatp (692) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Stanley’s Beer Fest 10/6, BOTTLE. Pour is amber to brown. Aroma of spice and yeast. Taste is a bit thin. demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Little bit of bread and yeast in the nose. Lighter than many American oktos and darker than the Germans. Bitter. Ok. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2012
Originally reviewed: 10/7/10. Cool bottle received from enelson (BA) in a recent trade. Thanks, Ed!
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear dark amber/orange. An inch and half beige head sits atop. No lace left behind. Basic tones of toasted malts, caramel, bread in the nose. The body was crisp, quasi-dry finish. Nice candied malts in the flavor. Full mouth of toffee goodness. Bitterness was low. I was getting just wisps of banana in the flavor as well. Different. Decent flavor, decent body, quite refreshing for the season. Good beer.
