Our Blowing Rock Oktoberfest is the ideal Märzen style German Oktoberfest brew. This lager pours a brilliant, golden copper and its malty aroma evokes notes of breaded caramel. A subdued hop profile creates a malt-forward, smooth finish to this well-balanced, seasonal brew.

It pours a dark golden with a head that does not produce very much lacing. There are dull aromas that are hard to pick up. The hops aroma was difficult to pick up due to lack of aroma. It has a taste of bread malts with a bit of hops are undefined.

A - Brilliantly clear amber body with an off white head. S - Nice toasted malts, caramelized brown sugar, nutty yeast. T - Sweet toasted malt, hints of spice and grassy hops on the sides of the tongue, caramel coats the mouth with notes of berry fruit and nuts. M - Low carbonation, medium bodied, smooth, semi-dry finish. Full flavored malts makes this a pretty tasty beer. It could have been a bit crisper but does not lack in the flavor department.

Originally reviewed: 9/11/09. I’m always excited to see a new beer come out of NC, and even more excited when that beer is an Oktoberfest. Poured into my pint glass a clear dark amber/orange with a thick beige head on top. Retention is weak, but it leave some lacing. Smells earthy and a little dull. Not a whole lot going on there. The mouth is creamy, but with just enough carbonation to give a little zip. Well done. I wasn’t expecting much in the flavor, as the rest of their offerings are pretty average, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Nice caramel kick at the onset, full bready mouth throughout, and finishes slightly bitter sweet. This is balanced and plenty drinkable. I could have a few more of these for sure. This may be one my go-to’s for the fall. Recommend.

kerenmk (3368) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle, beer of the month club. Pours hazy copper with a small, white foam head. Some honey, some flowers and malt aroma. Mouth - bitter with a hint of sour that disappears when left standing for a few minutes. Oily, medium carbonation, light body, a little sour finish. Past its prime, bu not too bad considering.

Strong, sweet aroma has tones of molasses, caramel and malt with a hint of cloves. It pours a nice clear dark amber with a fairly thick and fluffy ivory head that leaves barely any lacing. Malty flavor has subtle fruity, caramel and molasses notes and just a touch of spice. Smooth texture has average body and typical fizziness, leaving a bit of a malty, spicy, fruity finish. Not the best, but certainly worthy of at least a try.

12/26/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Yesssss. Clear red pour with a small khaki head that fades and laces in tiny loops. Malty aroma with dust, caramel, burnt sugars, a touch of tartness, and minerally tap water. Sweet entry as well with burnt caramel, even more sourness, toasty bread, minerals, and lingering breads. Not bad.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear amber color with a medium off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, toasted bread, light fruitiness and some signs of infection. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of caramel, and some sourish bread and sourish fruits notes, probably the result of an infection. Light-medium-bodied. Not good, but still drinkable.
