Deceptively advertised as "silver medal winner"; all I could find was Atwater winning a silver medal for a different product.

12oz bottle purchased at Wegman's.

First swallow had a bad metallic aftertaste. Just foul stuff. This is completely mis-conceived. Drain pour. And 5 more bottles to go.

Reviewed on 9/14/14

Appearance - 3.5/5
A very clear dark red-orange. About 1 cm of head after initially poured, dissipates to no head within 30 seconds. A very sparse amount of carbonation is seen flowing up at a slower than average rate. Overall, the colors are nice, but I would like to see more head retention.

Smell - 3.75/5
Dark and sweet caramel malts. Fruity alcohol.

Taste - 3.25/5
Dark lightly sweet malts. Hops. Some fruit and alcohol flavors as well. This is definitely the hoppiest and most bitter Oktoberfest I've had. Not sure I really like that with this beer. I would like the dark sweet maltiness to be the prominent taste, and the hops subtle, rather than in this beer where I feel as though the maltiness and hops are almost on equal footing (the malt taste is still stronger). Overall, not a giant fan of the flavor of this beer.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
Medium bodied, light carbonation. Slightly bitter. Very crisp. I like the crispness of this beer, I don't like the bitterness. Nothing else about the mouthfeel really stands out much.

Overall - 3/5
Overall, this was my least favorite Oktoberfest beer. It was way too hoppy and there wasn't really any redeeming features in my opinion.

Not very good. Does not have a good color or a strong taste at the finish. Kind of just goes away

Pours a huge, soapy, tan head that laces well. Sweet malt and spicy hop aroma, becomes almost astringent as the head settles. Ruby-crimson color. Starts with a toasted malt/caramel flavor. Builds to a low-medium bitterness. Caramel is sustained throughout.

I am not a fan of caramel flavors, and I am definitely not a fan of them in an Oktoberfest, so this isn't for me - at all. This is a total miss on what makes the style what it is.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bready, nutty. Taste is also bready, toasted malts a bit of nuts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer. I have to agree with the previous reviewer, this does drink more like a brown ale than a marzen.
