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.

Beer is drinkable, but it seems a tad too malty. Strong apricot syrup flavor.

freeofthoughts (684) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Tap pours a light copper with some off white foam. Light aroma of grain and light sweetness. The taste is simple but very smooth. A light earthy spice with drying flowery hops compliment the grain well to create a well finished product. There is a subtle nuttiness going with the hops that linger vying for palate space with the spice from the grain. Smooth and very easy to drink, this should be served in a liter glass.

bpr77 (264) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Pours dark amber with thick frothy head, this one looks great out of the bottle. Aroma is caramel and I can pick up on some earthy/hop notes and toffee as well. First thing that strikes me about this one is the body, med. to heavy and perfect for the style. Nice rich caramel/toffee flavor that finishes clean. I can’t recall a better Octoberfest and I’m proud its from a brewery just down the road from me in Lawrence, KC and now avail. by bottle. Awesome stuff ! I’ll be looking forward to this every year !

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor are full of rich but not heavy malt, caramel, a touch of smoke and fruit. Very clean, clear malt flavor. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve ever had. Wish it was available where I live -- would be drinking a lot of this.
