I really like this beer, and it reminds me quite a bit of SN’s current oktoberfest. Golden color, nice vinous maltiness, a bit juicy, toffee. Good peppery hoppiness, gives it a small kick and a balanced finish. Shows a little off-fruitiness if you drink it too warm, so put a good chill on it. ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2014
The aroma is milt and somewhat non-descript. The texture is very nice, buttery with good balanced hops acidity. The taste is a fine balance of hops and malt. The beer is eminently drinkable and not too heavy. Slubgob (338) - West Hartford, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tap into glass. Mahogany color, nose of maple? Oddly sweet at any rate. In the mouth malty with a crisp bite. Finishes with a bit more malt,a brief hit of sweet and lingering mild hops. Respectable if relatively unremarkable Americanized take on the style. luttonm (6562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12oz in Boston. Warm and rich autumnal beer, heavier malting and sweet earthiness. better than a ’premium’ lager with richer caramel-copper malting and a little spice. Rich and tasty. 60minuteman (1764) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Not a lot of fragerance but has a wonderfuly crisp fall taste. A sharp, well balanced, yet wonderfuly light beer.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a clear copper color with a smallish off white head that hangs around for a bit. Light toffee and earthy floral hops in the aroma along with a hint of mineral water. The flavor is light toffee and sweet malts with a light fruity twang. Light earthy hop provides some balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick watery mouthfeel. Nothing horribly exciting here, pretty poor excuse for an Oktoberfest, I wouldn’t buy this again. puboflyons (3463) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 17, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Brass-amber colored pour with a swiftly fading white head and busy carbonation. Nice aroma of toasted biscuit malts, caramel, butter, and general sweetness. The body is medium. The taste also has an upfront maltiness with a slightly more bitter bite but not in a floral, earthy hopped up fashion. Just a slight lingering finish. I enjoyed it.

Light musty caramel aroma. Copper orange color. Starchy malt flavor, light enough to have some bitter hops evident. Crisp like a pils, overall too light though. bhensonb (15505) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light copper with a slight, transient beige head. Mild caramel/roast aroma. Flavor starts toffee, moving to a bit bready, picking up some grassy? hop, and ending a little papery. Balanced, but rather bland. CBCBarFly (7) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2012 does not count
Great seasonal beer. Excellent palate. It goes down nice an smooth with no bad after taste.
