Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Very Clear dark burnt amber pour with ring of tan head and pretty copper highlights. Hits the minimal caramel and toffee malt notes I expect for the style, but not much else.Solid and fair american attempt. Clean with no faults. But still, nothing inspiring or overly enjoyable. Meh.

doomfistinc (82) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 30, 2010
12oz poured. Comes out a very nice, distinctive amber color with an off white head. Looks darker than a normal Oktoberfest lager. Smells of grass and corn. Mostly grassy taste with a very slight metallic bite in the after taste. Body is thin and fizzy, but not too fizzy. A decent beer, but nothing to write home about.

man is this stuff horrible. i can’t believe that they would bottle this stuff. it poured a goldish orange with a white head. aroma was dirt, grain, and caramel. flavor was HORRIBLE with lots of metallic going on and some grain. light body with high carbonation. who knows, maybe it was the combination of hops that they used. :O

nuplastikk (6453) - 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 (1094) - 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 (321) - 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

2.5
glennmastrange (2922) - 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.

3.1
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.

2.8
Ughsmash (7510) - 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.
