Bottle. Cloudy amber color. Aroma was malty and wheaty. Flavor was richer with caramel and sugary malts. Substancial on palate. Overall not bad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2013
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 (15958) - 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.
