    I had a good Octoberfest from Revolution brewingat a German restaurant recently.

    This was draft..  I have had less than spectacular experiences comparing draft to bottled lately.  So some of the opinions at the link may reflect that.

    But most of the microbrew Octoberfests this year seem to me to be way too sweet/toasty.. malty?   Even too hoppy.  I'm just not sure.. I just know I don't want to be hit over the head with the flavors and sweetness.  too much!

    Mostly drinking IPA's here.

      I often think that american craft brewers try to do too much. They aren't happy brewing a classic style well, they're always looking for a way to "kick it up a notch".

      The tradeoff is that experience has taught them that brewing a simple classic beer won't get them the renown it takes to get bigger.
