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.

Wow. I definitely was not expecting this. The caramel notes were the perfect blend to the malts in this beer. I expected it to be good but not this good.

12oz brown bottle from Ron’s in Farmington. Pours translucent red-amber body with a good inch of off-white head. Smells malty sweet with some roastiness, though the aroma is somewhat muted. Tastes sweet and roasty, with caramel and biscuit malts playing a big role. Very tasty, and one sip definitely invites another. Medium to full bodied with a fair bit of carbonation. I’m really impressed with this one - a new favorite for the style!

Great aftertaste, I got kind of a smoky feel, terrific with kielbasa. Had a draft at a local pub and ran out and bought a 6 pack right away

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a small mug. The label has a brief description, ABV (5.6%) and IBUs (30). There is no freshness date but it is a fall seasonal so I know it’s still fresh. Appearance: The beer has a very deep red amber color with a tall creamy beige head. The head slowly settles down to a thin cap that makes some silk lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is kind of light I do pick up nice roasted caramel maltiness with a touch of nuttiness and herbal leafy hops. Taste/Palate: The flavor is right there after the aroma. It has a good deep roasted malt character with caramel and bready sweetness. The hops show up with some herbal and leafy bitterness to add some balance. It finishes fairly quickly with a mix of hop bitterness and caramel malt sweetness. The palate has a decent medium body with an average mouth feel. Notes: This is one of the better dark Oktoberfest beers I have had this year. I can see this pairing very well with traditional Oktoberfest food. I know I am craving a big pretzel with mustard right now.

On draft at KClingers: Red amber but with no head to speak of. Fruity malt is the first impressions. Light dirty aspect, almost smoky. Clean, but disctinguishable light bitter edge. Great and quite drinkable.

Bright amber with a white head. This looked beautiful. Aroma developed a strong caramel, almost honey, sweetness. Sweet, spicy taste with a curious and very attractive creaminess. Mid bitter finish. I’m not particularly familiar with the style, but I liked this beer a lot.

Clean and clear aroma with hints of nuts, floral and butterscotch. Appearance is a nice clear amber with minimal head. A slightly bitter taste with medium sweet undertones and a slightly bitter after taste. Body is medium and an average amount of carbonation. One of the better Marzen style beers that I have had, nicely balanced and dark.
