Happened to find this just last week. Hadn't seen it previously and based on some of the reviews, it must have been released late for the season (duh, didn't read the description above -- funny that the lable in the picture reads "Novemberfest," but my bottle has Octoberfest in the same font and position -- but no underline flourish).
22 ounce brown bomber, no freshness date.
A -- Pours a clear, deep copper-amber with a very dense light tan head.
S -- Yeasty, bready nose with some light, spicy to piny hops back.
T -- Sort of nutty malt character up front with some roastiness and toffee. Spicy to citrus hops follow with a nut bread finish and spicy-piny aftertaste that starts to dominate as the beer goes down.
M -- Soft and smooth mouthfeel with a medium-heavy body and dry finish.
O -- Certainly drinkable and tasty, but hardly to-style for an Oktoberfest -- let alone a lager. Change the designation to an Amber Ale and this beer is right in the wheelhouse.

Served in a tumbler at Firkin.
Stickin' by the Half Acre station at Solidarity to try out this "Novemberfest". It pours a clear brass-amber topped by a couple o' fingers of cream-white foam. The nose comprises caramel, wheat, light clove, and light brown sugar. The taste holds notes of bitter grass, light menthol, light caramel, mild biscuit, and miscellaneous greens. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick-ish feel. Overall, an okay O-Fest (well, N-Fest, in this case, I guess...), but one that just seems a bit too bitter for its own good. The hops just don't meld very well the malty backbone at all.

Had on tap at the half acre tap room. Pours a medium amber color with a nice head.
Balanced and good aromas of citrus, crackers, and cereal notes.
Medium body that is slightly lacking on the feel. It does make up for it with really good notes of grains, citrus, some bits of hops and cereals.
A very good lager. Not amazing, but very drinkable.
