COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smooth, hearty Oktoberfest lager beers have been made for centuries to welcome the harvest season. In Bavaria, brewers would save their best grain & hops to brew their Oktoberfests for celebrating the coming of Fall and the start of the new harvest. This cherished tradition is captured in Hoppin’ Frog’s rich and hearty amber-colored Oktoberfest lager. Taste the tradition!

TET (2632) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2016
A beautiful, copper colour, a head is quite small and blond. Aroma has riped and sweet fruits, some raisins, fruit cake, richness of malts. Taste has strong maltyness, plums and also other dried fruits, some bitterness. Medium+ bodied, slippery, easy to drink. Brilliant lager, richness of malts with dried fruits. If the all Oktoberfest beers would be like this, then the Fall would be much better.

blackisle (2043) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle 65cl. Poured into a stem glass. Slightly hazy deep amber, small frothy beige head, mostly diminishing, light lacing; malty aroma, roasty, caramel, honey, candy sugar, bit licorice; taste medium to light heavy sweet and medium bitter, roasted malts, toffee, toasted bread, sugary, light hops set in late, quite alcoholic, with long duration, malty sweetbitter finish, caramel, light coffee notes, some alcohol; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation; strong and sweet but well-balanced, is this a Märzen? More a winterbeer I guess. Anyway I like this kind of beers.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle, 22oz. Almost clear in the glass, amber in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather sweetish, with syrup from canned peaches and some canned peaches. Piney, grassy hints as well. Rather sweetish flavor, yet dry on the palate. Full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with a rather weird bitterness. Peaches, white sugar and fruit syrup as well as a piney touch. Lasting fruity-sweet finish. I don’t mind it not being true to style, but it’s not a beer I could drink anyway. Well, I guess they can’t all be good. 150617
