This seasonal brew from Dockside has their typical taste to it - too much so in this case. The hoppy finish outweighs the malty sweetness so much that it is sometimes difficult to tell that this is supposed to be an Oktoberfest beer. Ruby dark brown in colour. Not as strong as you would expect for this style. It’s a very nice beer, but not quite what you would expect.

(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival in Victoria, BC, September 8th 2008. Deep brown body with a foamy, medium off-yellow head. Nose of brown sugar with undertones of hops and spice. Flavour of battery acid: metallic, tast, sour apples, tonic and burnt sugar. I’m not fond of this one. 3/3/4/1/7
