Bottle. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Nose and taste of lightly smoked orange peel, smoked malt, rye and mild spice/herbs. Medium body. Slightly bitter finish. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 4, 2013
Tap at Craft. Amber golden brown colour, with small off-white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, brown bread malt, bit of brown sugar sweetness.
Taste is interesting, bit pudding like, sweet, slightly fruity, caramel maltiness, apples maybe too and brown sugar. Quite nice. Uncomplicated.

11/8/13. On tap at Sweet Grass. Lightly hazed amber brown pour with a creamy khaki head that cuts in half but laces a ton. Malty aroma, a touch of char and roast, tannic in a way, lots of caramel, some chocolate. Nice malty flavor, creamy, light chocolate, caramel, a bit of a husk aspect. Tasty enough. rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at Westbrook. Burnt orange pour with a frothy white head. Toasted bready aroma, light caramel, toast, floral and grassy hop aroma. Flavor is similar, with a sort of toffee flavor and much more of a pronounced Noble hop character. Clean easy drinking with a nice bitterness. Good stuff.

22 ounce bottle thanks to James. Big pillowy carbonated pour. Too much! Taste is spicy hop. Malt. Much more nuanced than other Oktoberfests that just pour on the caramel. Nice. Gachupines (1252) - USA - OCT 22, 2014
Dark amber with a light wrote head. Aroma is vaguely nutty with a bit of malt. Strong, malt forward flavor with a touch of nuttiness. Full body, vaguely sweet with a funky bitter finish.

Bottle at home for blizzard. Reddish brown and hazy looking. Nose is hops and caramel. Tastes of green hops, caramel, toasted malt, grainy, and peppery. Dry and sweet finish. Scopey (15687) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Keg at CP&K. It pours hazy amber with a small yellowish-white head. The nose is lemon poppy seed caked, orange, bread, caramel and faint Irn Bru. The taste is orange sponge cake, caramel, wood, light varnish and zesty citrus with a dry, somewhat citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. I found it rather flavoursome and well balanced. Tasty. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2015
