On tap at O’Niell’s. Pours a clear amber with a very small light brown head. Very faint caramel malt aroma. Moderately sweet and bitter with a slick mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Decent beer. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 I thought this was very nice amber ale - similiar to the Drop-Top Amber, but more malt and spice and no rancid smell of old fruit flavor. Very rich and malty. Complex smokey, carmel malt, and distinct hop presence. talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Pours slightly hazy and copper/amber in color; head is small, fizzy, off-white, and leaves quickly. Nose is faint but pleasant, rich caramel, a little nutty, and with a somewhat fruity character. Flavor is nice and rich with caramel, slight toasty biscuit, still nutty, with a low hop biterness. Palate is lively and medium bodied, but with a soft, more round mouthfeel. Finishes still a little sweet with a certain dryness and an apple note (weird, but not unpleasant). Overall, a unique twist on a classic style, drinkable and enjoyable but not overly inviting. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bottled July 27th 2011; "To the one in my hand" printed beneath the cap. Pours clear dark orange with a small foamy off-white head. Aromas of sweet raisin and berry. Sweet fruity flavor with some bitter floral hops, sweet rose, and hibiscus. Average.  taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Amber.brown, good head. Malty aroma - slightly toasted cereal with a touch of sweet, malty taste - hints of hay. Finish is somewhat quick and clean. A good Oktoberfest - despite the fact that I enjoy mine somewhat unconventionally bitter.

Slightly hoppy version of the ever-popular Oktoberfest! This one was very crisp and pretty malty. I wouldn’t say it was thin, but it was thinner than most of the genre. Light and carmelly. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Light brown beer, fizzy. Mellow aroma of floral and malt. Taste is moderate and pleasant... somewhat sweet. Good beer. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2013
(Bottle). A somewhat watery Oktoberfest. The malt is somewhat tart and not as sweet as optimal.

Copper with small tan head. Spicy malt aroma. Taste is spicy, malty, woodsy, caramelly and toasty. A classic Oktoberfest taste. Some decent bitterness on the back end. Medium body. Can’t say anything bad about it at all. A solid Marzen and definitely one I’d buy again. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 12 oz bottle. Small beige.head, Beer pours a clear reddish amber color. Not much aroma, perhaps some mild apple smell.
Well carbonated. Light to medium body. Well balanced with caramel maltiness. Finish is a bit cola-ish with some mild hoppiness. Refreshing hot summer day type of brew. Pretty good.

12 OZ BOTTLE, JUST BOTTLED 5.5 WEEKS AGO, Sept 1, 2009. Pours a clear copper with a medium sized beige head. Nose is mild and all malts. Taste is caramel, nuts, biscuits with some very subtle mild hoppiness in the finish that does keep this from being sweet. If ever a beer was balanced this is it. Not real sweet like Sam Adams Octoberfest, although they each have their time, place, mood. Anyways this is easy to drink, sessionable and a nice Oktoberfest, even if it is an ale.
