While Krones was working on SweetWater’s brewhouse, which they were 3 months behind schedule on (that part is true), one of their sour kraut engineers drove a gabelstapler over Mr. Dank’s toe and broke it. Mr. Dankenschnitzel jumped a flug to Krones HQ in Deustchland to pick up his large siedlung check. Looking to quell his T Pain, Dank beelined it to Oktoberfest in Munchen and into the arms of a friendly farulein who quickly uber serviert him. Stumbling blindly, Herr Dankenschnitzel, laden in lederhosen and longingly looking for a lovely loo, humpelte into the Bitterburger Brewery to drain the main vein. Unable to hold it any longer, Danken Guender feuer abegespritzt all over the control panel, short circuiting their infamous Oktoberfest bier. The beer no longer fit the rhinobutt purity law, so Hans and Franz kicked his arsch out of the mother land and told Danky doodle dandy to take that mischmasch back to SübWaßer with him.

SpringsLicker (3589) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours mostly clear deep re3ddish amber under a sticky, off-white head. Bright, sweet fruity aroma. Sweet and syrupy. You could pass this off as an English Barleywine. Definitely not to style for a Oktoberfest/ Marzen.

Pours a nice deep dark amber color. Aromas of bread, caramel, fruit and nut. Flavor has a nice big malty taste with a almost noticable hop finish.

"The only imperial octoberfest I can think to compare this to is the Kaiser, which was much sweeter. This managed a better balance of semi sweet caramel malt and a bigger dose of hops without being cloying. If not for the rather alcoholic finish, would have scored very high. Still the best new octoberfest of 2012?"

Bottle from trade: hop aroma was a little less than expected.. If you like oktoberfest beers and IPAs, this is the beer for you.

Bomber, about $6 from Sprayberry Bottle Shoppe, Marietta (I think they still have some, if anyone wants to try to find this one). Pours a deep hazy red with about 2 fingers of off-white head. Aroma is big caramel and quasi-Belgian yeast. Taste is caramel malts, some yeastiness, and a peppery hop finish. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. I probably should have had this several months ago when I bought it, since this has not aged particularly well. Overall, this is a good beer for the money, but honestly tastes more like a "Red IPA" than an Oktoberfest.

DiarmaidBHK (4541) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours brown with a small khaki head. Not much on the nose. Nice caramel notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid for style. I’m a bit baffled as to the high score this beer currently enjoys.
