Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with heavy diacetyl. Sweet malty flavour with fruity and grassy notes.

Rune (12753) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011
One-third pint, gravicask at USA Cask Ale Bar, GBBF’11. Amber-dark brown to look at, dotted spots at the glass. Rather inviting smell of dark sweet malts. Dried fruits mixed with sweet caramel in flavour, notes of butter. Malty endnotes. OK, if not a bit unusual for an Octoberfest bier (London, 04.08.2011).

deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has bread and grains with a bit of sweetness from a biscuit note. Flavor has a strong earthy grain and bread note with a hint of underlying sweetness.

2.3
shrubber85 (11397) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Sour milk and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Lightly sour caramel malt flavor. Wow - a Oktober-cream ale.

hopscotch (11082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Drank this baby at about 2 AM on Friday, September 1st. Steady 60 mph wind and rain pounding the front of the beach house. Sliding glass door is bulging, but not breaking... and I’m drinking... a clear copper lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Lots of sticky, melted caramel in the aroma. Caramely, malty-sweet flavor. Medium-bodied and milky with modest carbonation. Malty, gummy finish. Yum! Thanks kenb!

3.2
daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Orangish/amber pour. Small head. Toffee, caramel, bread and some grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is malty and a tad sweet and the hops offset the sweetness nicely. Pretty ok for the style.
