COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogtoberfest is a unique beer containing five premium malts. This lager draws its influence from the Vienna Marzen or Oktoberfest style. It is rich and malty with a sweet aroma and deep mahogany color.

Copper colour. Aroma has some sweet caramel and malt. Flavour has a strong malty presence, a bit toasted. Sweet caramel finish with just a touch of bitter dryness coming in late in the aftertaste. I find this too sweet be a sessionable drink.

ElectroMod (119) - - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle bought at The Bear and Billet, Chester. Pours an amber brown colour, with a one finger frothy head. Metallic, malt and caramel on the nose, much of the same in the taste. Good, but not the best from this brewery.

lamas (1355) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Best by date on the side: 01/22/14. Mine says 5.6% ABV. A clear copper pour with a thick and creamy antique white head. Caramel, toffee, and a toasty cereal graininess dominate the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. Toffee and caramel start things off taste-wise. Lightly toasted sweet cereal grains round things out. The slightest hint of citrus at the end. A tad biscuity and vegetal throughout. Great for the style.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Keg at Bierhaus Cork. Pours a very dark copper colour with a thin white head. Big and heavy aroma of toffee, light molasses and rich biscuit. The taste is a heavy boozy sweetness: very toffeeish and very malty. Unbalanced but quite great nonetheless. Nice sweet finish, lively and medium mouthfeel. Probably the best Oktoberfest I’ve tried, especially for a style I don’t hugely like.

Hypersomnia (3) - , USA - OCT 28, 2013 does not count
Aroma is malty and spicy. Appearance is a nice reddish brown. Taste is malty at first with a pretty short dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit oily (pretty nice). Overall a good beer.

scarletfire65 (943) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, strawberry, cola. Medium bodied. The malt profile is a bit restrained for the style. Twangy, acidic, green berries. Dry finish. Corny, husky grains. Not good.

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/11/13] Draught at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Clear amber. Aroma of graininess, malt, caramel, fruity notes and a vegetal note. Sweetish malty flavor, a bit caramelly, with light toastiness and a light vegetal note. Finishes drier. Light to medium-bodied. OK.

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2013
On tap. Appearance: Red/brown. Small white head. Aroma: wood, smoke, lots of malt, some red wine notes too. Flavour: tons of carbonation, a little sour, woody again with lots of malt and a dry finish. Just okay.

TheHopster (791) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
(Bottle). Pours a beautiful copper complexion with ample white head and thin lacing. Aroma of faint malt. The flavor is a mild with balanced malts without taking on sweetness. Pretty nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
