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.

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. The aroma is kind of light I do pick up nice roasted caramel maltiness with a touch of nuttiness and herbal leafy hops. 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.

Taboada (278) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 10, 2014
355 mml bottle tasted on 09/07/2014. Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, honey and malts. Lot of caramel and yeast in the taste. Aftertaste is well balanced. Easy to drink beer with nothing special. Next one please!

12 oz bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, a splash of fruit, metallic notes, mild earthy bitterness to the finish. Pretty average at best.

Countbeer (4311) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Medium to smaller sized creamy foamy head on top of a clear red ish amber colored beer. Aromas of malts, hay/grass, some cream/honey tones, hint of caramel, herbs and some bread. Flavour is herbal, bitter, toast, grass, some nettle, malts, hay and grass, light bready and nutty with a dry edge. Aftertaste is bitter, herbs, malts and bread with a grassy edge. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, low to just medium bodied and a light foamy to creamy texture. Simple and quite boring... Might taste better when more fresh.

Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Dark amber colour with a finger of fluffy head. Light, lagery aromas with some minerals and iron. Nothing exciting but also nothing offensive. Some fresh fruits, pears and pale malt. Slightly more toasty in the mouth but still rather anonymous. I guess this is fairly true to the style. For me it’s not more exciting than your average international lager.

Dark amber. Malty, but not too sweet. Toast and nuts. Not my favorite Marzen, but not bad.

elbernays (405) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 30, 2014
Pours cloudy amber. Some bubbles. Caramel, honey, maple syrup malt aroma. Sweet aromas. All sweet fruits upfront- Strawberry, blackberry, autumnal fruits. Body is light and has a watery finish. Little or no bitterness on the way out and finishes sugary. Slight fizz. A bit of a fruit punch this and isn’t too bad.

Amber body. Aroma and taste are only full of caramel. No hops, no head, thin body. Nothing special.
