COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prost! Our festbier lager has finally arrived! Named in honor of the beautiful view majestic Humpback Mountain offers our brewery to the Southwest, Humpbock is the quintessential Fall brew. Once served in Munich for the celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig’s wedding, Oktoberfest lager (also called Märzenbier, as it is brewed in March for a Fall release) has become a traditional September-October beer the world over. Our version uses the eponymous Munich malt in combination with Pils and Vienna malts and is hopped exclusively with the noble Hallertau variety hop. Deep malty flavors dominate this quaffable beer. 26 IBUs.

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Keg @ WF C’ville. The pour’s deep amber with a tight off-white head. Attractive beer. The nose is fairly minimal. Biscuit, a bit of caramel and red apple. The taste isn’t as tight and clean as I’d hoped. A bit of newspaper, dish water. Otherwise, pleasant notes of apple and biscuit. Malty sweetness. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, not bad, but probably not on perfect form.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft t the brewpub. Same exact color as the ESB. Dark bronze. No lasting head. Sweet and tangy, this is a good fall beer. Nice appley finish. (#4273, 10/3/2011)

Foxbush (1322) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
This was Purchased by a friend for me to take to the USC v Navy game in Columbia. The beer poured with a smallish head from the growler. The color was an inviting amber. The beer had a slight yeasty taste. The amber beer lacked hops to add to the taste. We will be taking this to the game. Finish was smooth with sweetness.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Serving: Draft at the 2010 Fall Brewfest.
Aroma: The nose is straightforward with toasted and bready notes, but not much from the hop side.
Appearance: It pours a nice amber orange color with a slight, foamy, off-white head.
Taste: The flavor has a fruity bitterness and a lingering off flavor. A bit vegetal. Something just doesn’t seem quite right here as I’ve lost the toasted notes from the nose.
Palate: Light to medium body with average carbonation and a lingering, bitter finish. It lacks crispness and cleanness.
Overall: This one didn’t impress me as much as I hoped it would. I would like to give this one another shot on tap at the brewery though.

BREWMUSKCLES (2302) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2010
no head to the brew, nutty and light with springy carbonation. Fresh malt finish and lightly sweet. a little one dimensional.

obguthr (4100) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Draft @ County Grill Hampton VA: Weak barley malt nose with hints of cinnamon. Clear amber, medium lacing head. Relatively rich barley malt flavor with light maraschino cherry sweetness at midpalate. Finishes with generic bitterness. Somewhat perfumey.
