Copper body with small beige head. Mild caramel aroma. Easy-drinking medium caramel flavor, no bitterness. Very mediocre beer. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Wine Warehouse. Orange-amber pour with a one finger head. Low to moderate retention. Grassy, malty aroma.... unpleasant. Sweet grainy taste followed by a toasty and slightly nutty malt finish. Taste is better than the aroma by far, thankfully. Medium body. crossovert (13869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz bottle.
It pours a reddish orange with a fizzy white head.
The smell is of oxidized fruits and caramel.
The taste is a bit bland, it starts with a mineral water character and moves into a doughy sweetness with a bit of bitterness.
This beer hardly excites me, one of the more forgettable Oktoberfest beers.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw, cereal, meal), light hop (herbs), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple and plum. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On draught at the Mill Hill Saloon in Trenton, NJ: The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing. Light malt and caramel along with hops in the nose. Medium body with a soft mouthfeel. Flavors of toasted malt and caramel, plus mild hops and fruit. The finish is sweet malt and a hint of hops. Slightly above average all around.

"you can taste the orange peel more than the coriander, the smoky black patent malt almost taking over the flavor and aroma...like a slightly funky good black lager more than a wit. points for uniqueness. this beer was stout dark but light-medium bodied, and had a lot going on, but was still drinkable. the mix of flavors didn’t quite come together as much as i’d hoped as some of the wit character was a bit overpowered, but it tasted good. dry finish and feel. aroma a bit weak and unassuming, otherwise a good beer."
