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.

jcos (1562) - Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 7th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a nice dark caramel clear.
Aroma: Aroma is of nutty malt, with some hay and faint caramel.
Taste: Faint bitterness, faint caramel sweetness more on the end, hay.
Palate:Light body, a little bit of fizz.

Summary: I have been slow to start out November - need to kick it up a notch to hit 1000 total ratings before January 1st. Per usual I mostly defer for this style to the imports from Germany. Not a bad beer for the style and drinkable, but nothing that would make me choose this over others, even within American options.

16oz stein at Pizza Paradiso Georgetown pours a mostly clear, copper amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is standard, malty, some yeasty dough, cracker, a little fall fruit, mild golden raisin. Flavor is the same, malty sweet, biscuit, a little bread, some orange too, a little dried apple. Crisp finish. Solid representation.

Malty aromas and a sweet malty flavour, not my kind of beer at all. Tastes too macro for me.

On tap. Cooper color with one finger head. Malty aroma. Bready taste with some caramel. Ends dry. Decent version. Frederick Oktoberfest.

Aroma: grain and cereal malts. Appearance: clear, hazy brown, massive, beige, creamy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: bread and caramel malts. Overall: OK, Maerzen, but nothing to write home about. Pint at Big Brew, Morristown.

Clear Amber color with a white head that stays intact. A standard lager that isn’t very exciting.

Amber colour with white head. Yeast, bread and malt aromas. Fairly sweet taste. Nothing much to get excited about.

"better than i expected from this brewery. nice interplay between the caramel malt flavors and the floral hops. a little more likvely than i expect in the style with little of the harshness that makes me shy from flying dog."

Garrold (1495) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, copper colour. Tiny halo of white. Brown sugar and red fruit sweetness. Some spice. Hint of vanilla. Taste is fusty sweet to start. Lots of paper dryness. Palate is a little astringent. Finishes light dry, with some bitterness.
