On draught at the Vintage brewery/brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper colored brew with an off-white head that slowly dissipates and some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of toffee and some roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, with caramel malt, toffee and a hint of floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet, malty with a mild bitterness. Hard to determine if this is a Vienna or Munich style Märzen, or one of the best hybrid Oktoberfests I’ve encountered.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap at Vintage. Poured clear, lighter amber with a short cap of white head. The aroma was weak with caramel and lesser fruity notes “leading”.. soft and pleasant, though. This one was tasty.. toasted caramel and pale malts at the core with crisp, leafy bitterness around.. a hit of citrus and a touch of prickly alcohol on the finish. Light-medium bodied, crisp, and well-balanced on the palate.. good stuff.

On tap at the brewpub - For someone that doesn’t really like many Octoberfests, this one was very nice. Pours light amber with a small white head. Really bready malt on the nose, with some milkiness. Tons of bold malt flavor, with a lot of graininess and a touch of hops on the finish. Really rich and a touch sweet--like I said, this is the type of Oktoberfest that I like.

I believe this is supposed to be spelled Oktoberfest, had this on tap at Vintage, pours a light clear amber with a thin white head, the aroma is fairly faint and boring, the flavor has a nice malt backbone and even has a hint of hops in the finish, not bad.
