nuplastikk (5967) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2010
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-brown. Big, foamy, off-white head. Ouch, this one isn’t so nice. Probably sat on the shelves or in my closet too long. Macro aroma, maybe a hint of Noble hops. The mouthfeel is sort of grainy and dirty, and there an odd, off, sugary fruitiness in the finish. Quite disappointing.

MaltOMeal (1093) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2010
bottle. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose is of grain and some spice. Taste is of grain and spice as well. Mouthfeel is medium-thin. Unspectacular.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper color. Medium white head with decent retention and mild lacing. Nice aroma of German malt and Noble hops. Flavor is similar--mildly sweet crystal malt and grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel, slightly dry and a little fizzy for my taste. Clean finish. Not bad by any means, but there are far better representatives of the style out there.

hayden1215 (319) - Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Golden in color with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and malt liquor. Taste is metallic with some mellowing orange notes, pine cleaner Watery finish

glennmastrange (2765) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Light malt note of cereal, moderate herbs for the hops, with a hint of medicine. Head is average size, frothy/rocky with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery but a little slick and has a lively carbonation. Drinkable, but the only aspect of this beer that says Oktoberfest for me is the appearance.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice deep copper with khaki head. The aroma is quite malty with some herbal and metallic hints, maybe some raisin and caramel. The flavor is very straightforward: Munich malt, slight herbal hops in the finish. Not much going on here, but not terrible. I would prefer it be a bit richer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear, coppery-golden with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweeter caramel and honey notes with accents of lemon meat and a touch of leaves.. almost candied and certainly pleasant. The flavor found sweet caramel again at the core.. tart on the edges with lemon zest and a touch of earthy bitterness.. finished a little too sharp for my liking. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. started out alright, but didn’t really finish that way.

Drake (13176) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 ounce bottle opened 9/16/10. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, faint fruity notes and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, faint berry-like fruits and a nutty, grassy finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Pours golden amber with lots of white fluffy head. Medium aromas of cereal malt. Medium-to-full palate is creamy with note of cereal and spice. Finish is persistent. Nice malty flavors without any obvious sweetness.

thirdeye11 (6138) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(12oz bottle recommended to me by Swalden28, thanks Stephen!) rich clear orange with sparse white bubbles. Nose of attenuated grains, caramel. Taste is metallic, lightly sour like yogurt, caramel grain, light butter and light in body.
