From the growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate in a snifter. This fine fest pours a
nice glowing deep amber color with a nice head of white foam that settles to
a thick ring, thin subtle pool, and showcases nice sudsy lacing. Nose of sweet
malts, light earthy tones, and subtle herbal hops. Flavors hit the umpa! note with
deep sweet malt notes touched with light breaded malt flavors with a touch of
roast and herbal hops on the back. Nicely balanced! Excellent mouth feel; medium
body, medium light carbonation to keep things lively and sessionable, and a sweet
malt finish with a touch of hops.

Excellent!

Cheers

12oz bottled 7/20/17 poured into a .5L krug at fridge temp 5.7% ABV. The beer pours a bright copper color with short lived khaki colored head. Head recedes to a ring around the glass and a skim coat. The aroma is earthy. I'm not sure if the yeast or hops have more to do with that. The flavor is nutty, toasty and robust. There is a hint of earthy bitterness on the end to balance the malt. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, well carbonated and dry. Overall, very good. The label mentions imported hops and grain. I really could only sense the German malts. It's still a pleasant and easy drinking beer.

Dedinitely a more amber caramel octobe rest than traditional. I don't dislike this type of Octoberfest I just prefer a cleaner crispy less sugary one slightly more. This actually reminds me entirely of great lakes version.

Bottled on 7/20/17. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours copper with a subtle haze but still has some clarity to it along with some bubbles racing upwards; chunky off-white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and sticky frothy lacing. The aromas are subtle with some fresh toast. Malts are there. Mild hints of caramel and toffee. Some peanuts in the mix. The flavors are pretty clean, crisp and refreshing. Malts do their thing. More toasted bread. More subtle hints of caramel and toffee. Mild spiciness in the finish. Slightly earthy. Mild to moderate bitterness. Finishes clean. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's light with sharp active carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid Oktoberfest. It's a clean example of the style. The craftsmanship is on point. Enjoyable stuff.

This is not my favorite style, but it is one of my favorite local brewers (my official retirement party was at Fat Heads on Lorain). Will I cut them some slack? No need to. This is a great example of the style.

It's not as red as some, but it has excellent head. The aroma is fresh and clean. The taste is not overly malty and does not seem to do anything off kilter. This is a well balanced brew that ends up being more refreshing than this style usually is. I could see myself drinking a few of these except I only bought the one bottle at Saveon on Friday.
