COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Octoberfest’s decidedly malty flavor comes from a generous portion of Vienna Malts. The maltiness is balanced by German and Czech Republic noble hops for dryness. The balance between the malt and the hops and the long, cold (30 degrees F) maturation process make this an exceptionally drinkable beer.

Very drinkable indeed. A very nice barley note to this, with some tinge of German hops and even a little saaz or something. Pours pretty murky brown for style. Light bitter barley finish. Very easy on the palate. Bottle.

Periander (50) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Beautiful deep Amber color. Aroma reminded me of corn. Medium sweet malt flavor, not much in the way of hops. Rather bland.

Bottled. Aroma was unobtrusive(smelled like a Lager). Has a strong bitter flavor with a stale(sour) aftertaste.

mzaar (1742) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2013
Fat @ Scion, Wash. DC. Smörkola och fruktighet hittas ändå trots att dofterna är allt annat än intensiva. Smörkola, röda äpplen och lime i smaken. Den här ölen kan man både ha och mista.
