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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 Blowing Rock’s Oktoberfest is rooted in tradition, delivering a stateside rendering of the Munchen classic in a can (or bottle). Pours deep orange-amber and holds a rocky white head with ample lacing. Familiar bready and caramel malt aroma with coppery noble twang permeate the aroma and flavor. Has enough girth to stand up to a heavy lunch of wursts and spaetzel, but light enough to stand on its own. One of the better Oktoberfests out of the southeast.

Poured up a light copper color with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel, grain, earthy, some what organic. Flavor is caramel, toffee, grain, and a slightly off metallic taste. Mild carbonation. Good beer for cooking.

Can. Pours a copper color with white head. Malty, minerally, earthy aromas. Malty, bread, orange soda flavors. Kind of like the other Blowing Rock beers I’ve tried, just a little off.

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.

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.

Toasted cereal malt backbone. A bit thin and watery. A touch of caramel. Some grain and fruit notes. A sour tart component and a little grass.
