Taking a step away from our namesake, once a year we craft a lager worthy of extra days in the cellar. The COOP Oktoberfest combines Munich malt, Bavarian hops and a traditional German yeast, and calls for the celebration of fall’s arrival. It’s time to find a tent, fill your stein, prost, yodel and polka!

Not a bad oktoberfest. Malty sweetness dominates. Light caramel, some sweetbread and muted yeastiness.

16 oz can purchased as a single at Cork and Barrel 23rd Street in Lawrence, Kansas. The pour is a golden ruby copper with a ½ inch off white head that falls fast. The aroma is grain, slightly sweet malt, along with grassy earthy hop. The taste is the grass up front, a bit dirty with evident yeast and the grain sweet malt in the finish. The palate is medium bodied, chewy mouthfeel and a bit of mineral in the finish. Decent take on the style.

Samled at gabf. Clear amber hold. Soft spices and gentle fruit. Nice malts. Pleadant beer.

Finally tracked this down on tap at a tasting. Attractive pour--a nice orange with moderate head and lacing. Aroma was nothing terribly special. Was much cleaner and lighter bodied than many of the Oktoberfest beers I’ve tried. As such, found it quite easy to drink and very enjoyable. Prost!

Not too much aroma. Absolutely no head. Humm. Has a strong sweet caramel flavor, but not much else other than the sweetness. A bit boring.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2010
On tap at 51st Speakeasy. Pour is a medium orange-amber color. Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Light aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Flavor is caramel, toasted bread and light grassy hops. Thin, slightly watery mouthfeel. Clean finish.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 From tap, pours a clear rich orange, medium head and lacing. A touch watery, light body and very smooth. REVISIT- New year, new batch. Tasting the first keg to come in for 2011’s COOP Oktoberfest, tastes a bit lighter than last year’s with a slightly watery taste again compared to last year. Still good though, glad it’s already here in early August.

[Tap] Pours bright orange in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, malts and some grass. The taste is of caramel malts, bread, grains and a crisp hop finish. Also included an odd sour flavor much like their wheat. It is not as hidden and more pronounced as a flaw in here though compared to the wheat. Still has a decent flavor profile if you ignore that. The palate / mouthfeel here was quite good for the style. I’ll try it again to see if anything is different in the future. Certainly has potential though.
