COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hops: Horizon, Crystal
Yeast: Dusseldorf Alt
Original Gravity: 14.3 Plato
Formats: 1/2 kegs, 1/6 kegs, cask-conditioned
Availability: September 1 to November 1 (if it lasts that long)

Pint on tap. Nice caramel color, medium head, decent lacing. It’s billed as an oktoberfest, not sure why it’s an altbier...I really thought it was very good. Lots of malty caramel tastes, barely a hit of hops. Lots of warmth, very enjoyable mouthfeel. High marks for a faithful reproduction that’s almost better than the beer it copies.

OktoberFish is now a good staple for the fest. Taste is very good and smooth. Drinkable, although not adventurous.

Draft sampler at RFD. Pours a clear amber with small white head. Bread, caramel malt, grains. Out of balance, something off.

Draft. Medium brown with little head. Standard Oktoberfest aroma as taste but a little too sweet for my taste. Not terrible but wouldn't seek it out again.
