BBB’s Oktoberfest is a classic festival beer modeled after those made famous by Germany’s famous fall festival. Loaded with Munich malt and Hallertauer hops, our Oktoberfest is malty and clean - finishes with a delicate and spicy hop note. It is the perfect beer to celebrate the changing of the seasons on the South Coast. Canadian 2-Row Pale Malt Munich, Crystal and Vienna Malt Magnum - Bittering Hops Hallertau - Flavor and Aroma Hops ABV: 5.1%
Editor’s Note: In 2005 and 2006 this had 7.5% abv. This was scaled back in 2007

Pours a clear copper amber with a nice, frothy, light tan head. Aroma of toasty Munich malt and authentic German yeast with a hint of tartness. Body starts with a sweet earthy caramel maltiness, balanced with a fresh, lightly piney noble hop bitterness toward a sticky bittersweet, warming finish. A nice Oktoberfest, but perhaps a little too bitter and alcoholic at times.

Pours a three-fingered cream head that fades quickly leaving a little lace. Nice clear amber color. Weak hoppy nose. Very light carbonation and medium bodied. Starts semi-sweet with hops in the background, finish is slightly hoppy but not much of an aftertaste. $1.55 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours coppery with a thin white head. Smells of yogurt, hay, caramel, and grapes. Taste is grapey with some lively peppery notes. Finish is sweet with some sugary elements popping through. Very unusual flavors for an Oktoberfest, but definitely worth the try.

Wow! Didn’t realize when I got this from OldGrowth that I’d only be the third person to rate it. Copper bodied with a small white head. Nose is very malty and laden with caramel, light hops, and fruits. Dried berries, caramel, grape bubblegum, light hops, and chewy malts. Taste is Malty and chewy with more grapes, light berry notes, earthy hops, caramel and light butterscotch. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes with more chewy malts, light hops, berries, grape bubblegum and caramel. Very drinkable and tasty Oktoberfest.

Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose, sweet. Apple , grape, caramel, brown sugar. Clean reddish orange color, small head that faded quickly. Sweet bitter flavors, Like aromas, fruitiness takes on a little more of a berry taste. Little metal and grassy taste. Medium bodied (borderline thick), oily creamy mouthfeel, sweet bitter finish. Tasty brew, though I found that metal/grass thing kind of annoying, but certainly a real good beer from this brewery.
