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.

Bottle. The beer pours a great rich copper color with a bit of orange to it. Nice white head. The aroma and flavor are nutty and mellow. Very simple, but a good octoberfest nonetheless. First octoberfest of the year! Only 15 days old.

mzaar (1615) - 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.

SamP01 (570) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a copper amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and taste has a sweet toasted barley malt character, grass and grains with some bitter notes on the end. Palate is medium body with good carbonation and crisp mouth feel. Gets slightly sweeter and flavorful as it warms up, needs a bit more malt. Overall a good drinking brew but could be better.
