Dark amber/brown color with a thin foamy light tan head. Notes of camamel malt in the nose. Tastes of specialty grains, caramel, buscuit, etc. Lacks the roast/toastiness flavors I crave in this style. Harsh bitter grain/hops finish. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2005
12oz bottle. Poured a darker amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of flowers, nuts and caramel. Tastes of caramel, nuts and spices. A ’different’ Oktoberfest for sure. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2008
On draught at the Malt House: Poured a clear dark amber colour with a huge white head. Aroma was slightly malty, with barely noticeable caramel notes. Taste was very very metallicy, not sure if it was a bad keg or what. Soft biscuity character, otherwise metallic taste was a big turn off. BVery (10327) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Tap at the brewpub in Lake Mills, WI. Clear orange pour with minimal head. Caramel and earthy nose. Medium bodied, carbonated. Taste is caramel, a short-lived sharp hop bite, and bread. Ungstrup (37284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as a light note of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of metal and alcohol, leading to a bitter and metallic finish. Too simple. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

sweet creamed corn and banana nose.
fizzy and lightly rough carbonation and texture.
candy corn and maple and toffee malt.
low bitterness, medium-low acid.
Huge frothy head. On the milder side of O-Fests, with more malt than hops, so consider this a session Octoberfest. Very dry in the finish, perhaps too much so. Odd metallic taste that wears on me. I think I prefer the German Octo offerings. shigadeyo (3730) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2009

9/05/2009: Gemuetlichkeit Oktoberfest... Aroma: Sweet breadcrust and faint caramel. Appearance: Sandy blonde to tan in color; thin off-white head. Flavor: Lightly toasted bread and malts. Palate: Average. Overall: This is a fairly typical Oktoberfest-style beer that is lacking any real character; nothing special.
Draught at Tyranena Brewing Company in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. Rating #72 for this beer.
reddish-caramel color, no head to speak of. aroma is quite buttery, lots of diacetyl and maltiness. flavor is essentiallly the same with a surprisingly modest hop bite. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Pours a clear copper with white head.Aroma is mineral and malts. Taste is malt with odd, yet definite apple/cider notes. Palate is somewhat chalky. Carbonation is medium.
