First released in 2002, and sold out in two weeks. A tribute to the classic Fest styles of Germany the O’Fish uses European malts hops and yeast. A beautiful reddish color, a savory malt profile and nice hop flavor, make this Fest beer quite drinkable. OktoberFish is great with food and especially great with Lederhosen.

PorterPounder (7431) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Fort Myers, Fl. - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Sparkly, medium orange pour with a soapy white head. Grainy, peppery aroma with hints of corn. Flavor has some wort-like essence to it with some peppery notes, some corniness and just a hint of ripening vegetable funkiness. Mouthfeel is slightly dry. Uninspiring.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2015
At work: pours copper with a small off white head. Aroma is light caramel and a couple hops. Taste is somewhat sweet with toffee and caramel. Somewhat bready. Not bad. Quite meh.

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2015
BBD 1/21/16. Slightly hazy amber pour. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention. Light nose of toasted biscuit with a caramel undertone. Rather bready. Heavy light body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a weak burst in the finish. The flavor profile is rather good and a bit atypical for the style. Intensity and balance are well done, but complexity is outstanding. Toasted malts yield a bready background similar to pumpernickel. The middle delivers a subtle floral bitterness and a plum/raisin undertone. As the finish approaches, the dark fruit aspect really shines as caramel cascades into the finish. The finish is clean with a subtle crispness.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber color with small beige colored head. Aroma of cereal grains and caramel malt. Sweet malt flavor with some barley notes. Straightforward but good.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Nice take on the Oktoberfest style. Crisp, just right amount of sweetness and hop bitterness. Very good lager.

Nejhleader (1460) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2015

skmikeg (1787) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Pours copper-amber with a one finger off white head which quickly fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, caramel, sweet malts, toffee, grass and earthy hops, and some citrus zest. Taste is pretty malty with a light hop profile of some earthy citrus and spiciness in the background. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty beer that is pretty solid for the style.

State ticking. 12 to go. NJ via AZ from my mum to WI. Lots of nutty and biscuity malt flavor. Nice German style. Not over the top American caramel malt bomb.
