3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
September 28th, 2012 - Green Flash isn’t one to be left out of the Oktoberfest celebrations. The German styled beers are few and far between in San Diego, but Oktoberfests blossom in Fall like sakura in Spring. Green Flash’s version is different enough from the tried and true "sweet and malty" formula to be worth a try. The aroma is somewhat muted, especially cold and served from a sampler glass, but there’s still plenty of fresh, rich malt on the nose, and a touch of pistachio too. The nose even features a bit of strawberry, adding an extra layer of acidity and tang. The flavor is also acidic, and noticeably sour. Not as malty as in the nose, but with a soft, bubble texture, and an added note of orange marmalade, which is (as always) sweet and bitter, but more to the point, complex.

Golden orange, decent head. Smells caramel, and surprisingly hoppy. Taste is also caramel, grassy, kinda citrusy. Malty for Green Flash, hoppy for an Oktoberfest..
