Bottle->SA. Lite amber with small white head. Grains and malt, with some earth and light spices. Mild, overall boring but drinkable. can8ianben (1583) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Really dry. Malt forward. Earthy and crisp. Amber color and faint hop aroma. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Orange amber with small head. Mild body and hops. It’s okay, but not really going anywhere flavorwise. Aurelius (5589) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Foggy, dark apricot-bronze beer. Quickly collapsing white head. Standard US longneck, OK label. Doughy, amber malt aroma, lightly sweet. Interesting. A tangy acidity over a medium malt, not very fruity, moderate tinny bitterness. Wood shavings in the finish, and a tang on the backsides of the tongue. Slightly heavy body. Overpriced relative to more traditional Oktoberfests. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Hazy amber body, medium off-white head, spotty lacing. Caramel, toffee, biscuit, light fruit, spice. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, semi-sweet finish.

Bottle. Nose is sweet, earthy malt, pretty classic for an Amber rolled out this time of year, with some interesting taffy-like fruity notes. Pours a bright orange with amber highlights and some haze, and a creamy off-white head. Light-medium body is super soft, filled with tangy fruit; low carbonation, low bitterness but smacking and quenching, maybe a little too sweet and candyish but that fades a bit. Honey, touch of spice, light citrus, light malt depth and not pushing the caramel too hard. Very fresh and clean. In the end, pretty tasty, if a bit too easy; I’d still like to see something like this around in late spring and through summer, even as a lighter alternative in der Bockzeit. hfmejias (1297) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear copper in in color, minimal white head and hardly any lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, some caramel and grain and very few hops. Flavor is sweet, quite malty and fruity. Drinkable and enjoyable but not really great... NikkTwist (3363) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Draft at Moriartys. Clear medium-dark amber. Minimal head or aroma. Feels a bit like a dark ESB. Thin palate but some nice dark amber fruit notes. Apricot pits. Burnt toast with marmalade. Pumpkin. Bright juicy notes in the middle. Modest spicy finish. Interesting take on the Oktoberfest style. jeremugohio (94) - springboro, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Enjoyable beer. Clean pour, amber brown. Taste is very light and almost fruity. Not much aroma or lacing, but going down it is fairly smooth. Travlr (26198) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Draft. Clear golden amber color, bright white head. Aroma of driedq fall leaves. Taste is malt forward with light spice.
