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. The pour was a hazy brown with an orange hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that was mostly diminishing leaving behind a nice amount of residue allowing for some good lacing. The aroma off the bat was of a piney hop with a toasted biscuit malt and a horse blanket scented yeast and also had a nice hint of caramel. It tasted moderately sweet and malty at first then progressed into a sweet hopped up malty flavor with a nice note of caramel at the end that left the flavor lasting a nice long time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and slightly watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a very flavorful brew and a nice interpretation of the style.

Nice take on the Oktoberfest style. Crisp, just right amount of sweetness and hop bitterness. Very good lager.

amber color; hoppy aroma; a well balanced beer; biscuity, caramel malt and noble hops with a bit of an underlying fruitiness and some spice notes; dry, bitter finish

skmikeg (1405) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, 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.

Dark hazy orange, medium to thin white head, soapy lacing. Mild toast, cracker, some toffee, florals, and a splash of citrus zest. Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation, muted finish with mild bitterness.

solidfunk (5674) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 17, 2015
A mild rust aroma with a tinge of barley. Pours brown with mediocre head and lacing. Touch of mash malt in finish. Bottle, probably a little past prime.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Orange-amber and clear appearance with a white head. Earthy, lightly malty and light bitter with Munich malts providing a touch of caramel and toffee. Light to medium body with a crisp, carbonated feel. Pretty solid rendition here.
