COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktoberfest is one of the most celebrated traditions in German culture. And though Kansas may be a long way from Munich, we share the sentiment. Our Octoberfest was only the second specialty beer we ever brewed, and the original batch was first tasted back in 1989. To this day, it continues to be one of our most popular brews, with folks seeking it out both at the brewpub and on the shelves of their local liquor stores.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orangish amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet bread and grains with a touch of light fruits. Flavor is smooth with a bread and sweet grain as well as a touch of straw in the finish.

Sampled this beauty at the 2013 OBF event in Joplin, and it was one of the standouts at the event. BIG malty boldness with a toffee, nutty characteristic. Flavor lasts for eons. Terrific O-fest. One of the very best in the style FOR SURE. GET SOME!

Good fall beer, but not great. Flavor is nice (safe) and doesn’t overwhelm with seasonal spices. Aroma is good. Pallet is smooth and clean, not much of a mouthful. I’d drink it again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Good malty smell. Amber red translucent color with small tan head. Taste the malt and hops with some spiciness. Had lingering bitter floral taste. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
