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.

Bottle. Really just a nice October from Flying Fish. Mysteriously labeled as an altbier? Is it really? I dunno but give me a few more of these

A nice flavor, just enough hops taste that it isn’t overwhelming. Great head out of a tap, very thick and stays tall for quite a while.

sloth (2688) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Small offwhite head, short lived with a touch of stringy lace left behind. Clear amber/copper hued brew.Bready malt nose, yeasty with light fruit notes. Med/light body. Mildly sweet malt flavors, doughy with a hint of chocolate. Finishes medium dry with a slight astringency.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Cask at Andy’s O’fest.Gently dry hopped, pleasant subtle hop aroma. Fruityness blends well with the hops. Malty rich flavor. Peppery. Some hops. Nice and complex.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bottle: orange/amber in color with a small head that fades to nothing quickly. Nuts and malt in the aroma, with some almost sweet spice to it that I feel shouldn’t be there. Flavor: Initially malt and spice hit the tongue. The malt tastes good, I can definitely taste to de-bittered black malt in there, which adds a nice bitterness to this beer. The spice tastes more like an unintended infection and adds a acidic quality to the taste. The aftertase is roasted, dark, and bitter.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2004
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very rich dark orange to brown, with a hint of ruby, and very small off-white head. Unfortunately, the appearance is its only strong asset. Sweet, malty aroma. Very bitter, but not really in a good way. Malty-bitter. Overall, not very good.

Pretty good - but Flying Fish ESB is still the best. This is a decent Oktoberfest style beer, but it’s not one of the best I’ve had, great color though.

Thanks to Willblake for this brew from Flying Fish! Oktoberfish has a nice deep copper color and a fine head of frothy off white foam on top. Malty aroma with a nutty touch to it. The flavor is sweet and has a rich nutty aftertaste that is enjoyably different. Not an Oktoberfest despite the name. Very nice and a good change of pace. Sorry, but I’ll have to pass on the Lederhosen though.
