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.

Yeast: Dusseldorf Alt
Original Gravity: 14.3 Plato

Light amber in color, excellent malt profile & flavor, sweet finish, great balance, tiny little hints of fruits, hops & citrus flavors

(draft at brewery). This is actually an ale, not a lager. Reddish-brown, nearly brilliant in clarity. Munich-toasty malt dominates the aroma. Nice malt flavor with a bit of citrus esters that work nicely with the beer. Smooth follow-through: balance seems to be a hallmark of this brewery.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Nothing much going on here. Tasted like a beer.

A spicy flavorful hoppy beer with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Gingerbread spice with a little alcohol kick in the finish. Not the type of Oktoberfest that you can drink several of. I had one and that was enough.

Very enjoyable Oktoberfest from Flying Fish. Autumn is a great time of the year to be a beer geek with all the seasonal selections breweries offer now. An Oktoberfest beer was one brew that Flying Fish knew its customers wanted. Well we got it! Hats off to Gene Mueller and the Flying Fish crew on their first lager. If you see this brew give it a try.

An enjoyable marzen if you can call it that. Not really indicative of the style as I’ve had it but nice looking and tasting. Nice, lasting head leaving rings as you drink. Malty up front, but quickly turning dry with a spicy hop finish. Easy to drink a few. A winner from FF.

Clean reddish hue. Thin slightly off-white head. Rather malty flavor with a late hop bitterness. Had more of an ale feel to me than a lager. Even so, this was one of their better beers.
