Slightly underwhelming. I’ll take other Octoberfest beers over this one pretty much any time. kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2012
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 (723) - 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.

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. DiarmaidBHK (5668) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle from the beer store. Pours light brown with a thin white head. A bit of malt on the nose. Nice amount of effervescence. Sweet malt on the tongue. Clean finisher. johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle. Amber color with an average off white head. Mostly corn aroma. Malty flavor with a bitter, metallic finish. Dry texture with heavy carbonation. Not one I would have again as there are much better seasonal options available. DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Enjoyed a large quantity of this in New Ulm, MN recently. A nice Oktoberfest, but not as good as others I have had. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear light amber color with a finger of white head.
S: Smells of grassy and lightly floral hops. Some straw is also there. Toasted bread and toffee malt aromas with a little bit of yeast. Smells fairly corny as well.
T: Heavy on the corn and light malt flavors. Toffee and toasted bread flavors, a little bit of yeast, too. Some floral hops and maybe a few earthy hop notes, too.
M: Light bodied with medium carbonation.
O: The corn character really wasn’t very pleasant.
