On tap at C'est What? and next day at Mill Street.

Pours a clear orange amber, thick white head forms, quickly settles down to a thick layer and ring around the glass. Smell is nice, nice and malty, a little light, sweet, caramel, biscuit, nice toasty malt, corn syrup, a bit of fruit/orange, smells alright. Taste is similar, nice big maltiness, caramel, toast and biscuit, lightly fruity, some sugar, quite sweet and malty but nice. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. A pretty solid marzen. (519 characters)

Pint at the brewpub. Appearance-wise, this beer is spot on, with a nice amber body, and a finger of white head, that leaves decent lace as it diminishes. Aroma is fresh, with a strong bready aroma. Taste has spices and sweet caramel malts all over it, finishing with a moderate hoppy bitterness. Huge breadiness throughout. Medium body and carbonation. Decent drinkability. (373 characters)

I had this on tap at C'est What.

It came to my table a deep copper color with red hints on the sides of the glass. A small, creamy ring of foam musters up a little bit of lace, nothing special. The aroma is bready with an accompanying spicey noble hop character. The taste follows suit with an amber malt toastyness and a pleasant amount of residual sweetness. Hops are restrained throughout. The mouthfeel is clean and light with moderate carbonation. Bitterness and malt sweetness compete in the shortlived finish.

This is a pleasant, malty Oktoberfest lager and another delicious beer from Mill Street. would make a great session beer. (640 characters)

Tapped a amber-orange with a fair cap with moderate retention.

Aroma is light toasted bread crusts over some herbal-woody noble tones.

Medium bodied decent malt spine toasty-woodsy character, creamy mouth feel.

Nice toasty malts in the front, joinded by ample noble balance...deep woody-herbal-toasty tones mid palate...finishes lightly drying with nice Hersbrucker"bite" in the finish and a slow herbal bittering with a bready after taste.

Good malty O-fest...slightly hop biased...very very drinkable. (507 characters)

I sampled this at the C'est fall festival, but also enjoyed a glass at Mill Street.

A: Bronze with a white head, good retention & lace.

S: Grassy spicyness, bready, light caramel.

T: Caramel, grassy spice, bready, good bitterness. A touch too much residual sugar for me, but not inappropriate for the style.

M: Moderate body is smooth, some residual sugar, moderate carbonation.

D: Quite drinkable.

A well-crafted brew, but for the style, I think it suffers from a lack of German malt. The malty flavour is a little more "American Crystal" than Munich or Vienna. (568 characters)

A smokey pale beer. Nice white head. On malty side, offset by good use of smoke. Some spices in there, ginger, cloves, and sugar. Some hops. Smooth easy drink. California BAs sharing this mixed reports. Better than average and worth a try. Bittersweet aftertaste, medium palate. (278 characters)

Deep gold colour, very clear, with a dense white head. Excellent retention and stickage to the glass. The aroma was made up of a sweet, grainy maltiness and smooth earthy hops with a light lager crispness. The delicate grain flavour and light sweetness were balanced by a significant hop bitterness and an earthy/floral hop flavour. Medium/light body, medium carbonation. Bitter and earthy hop character at the finish leaves the palate quite clean and dry. (456 characters)

Poured a nice frothy head with a tinge of dark brown, nice and creamy one that lingers for quite a time. Dark amber of the brown-orange variety.

Has a commanding aroma of celery, some spices (a little clove-like, but not quite), some hint of the alcohol content (7% on the bottle from the brewery itself) is detected.

Mouthfeel is slightly thicker than I expected, a little bit heavier too, but nice.

Taste is roasted coffee and a tinge of salt. The roasted taste is focused, with a warm bitterness that seeps in with the aftertaste. Aftertaste lingers nicely, fading off gradually without ever becoming 'stale'. A touch of malt sweet is only faintly detected at first, but then becomes more prominent as the beer warms slightly.

This is a fine brew as far as I'm concerned. It's somewhat deceiving too--doesn't taste like 7%, but you can feel it. I'm glad I have a couple of these 650 mL bottles kicking around for later, but one is enough at this ABV. (965 characters)

22 oz brown bomber, no freshness date. A big thanks to Oakes for the sample.

Appearance: Brassy brown colour, the clarity is fine and the lace is tight, bubbly and sticky going down the glass.

Smell: Malty with suggestions of brown sugar and cookie dough.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Slightly crisp moderate body, a bit fluffy in the mouth. Solid but modest malt profile, sweet with toasted tones throughout. Kiss of hops hit hardest in the middle, just enough to balance things out. More lingering toasted malt in the finish.

Notes: A tasty o-fest, I could see drinking this one all night without getting sick of it … that is saying a lot coming from me. (659 characters)
