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!

Bottle thanks to bittermestupid! Clear dark amber pour, very little carbonation and a nice nutty and mild dark fruit aroma. Nice a malty, nutty, decent amount of caramel and a little spice. Slightly stronger than most Oktoberfest beers which seemed to enhance the balance and flavor. Really dig this, will be looking for this the next time I’m in Hudson!

Hmm. A book full of ratings...hopefully mine! Dark amber. A pitch down the middle. Tasty toasty caramel.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2013
bottle from ølbutikken. Clear dark orange to amber, smooth small offwhite head. aroma of malts, faint banana, faint fruity, aroma is somewhat not-as-good as the best german lagers. Flavor is fruity, syruppy, malty, sometning resembling chestnut or syrup, honey or caramel sweetness. Quite a disappointment from the frog who usually make great beer - but then, lager is not easy to do right, and 7% lager is even harder still.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a mostly clear amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but light, the brew smells like toasted malt, caramel, grassy hops and some herbs. Luckily the taste has more kick to it. It tastes like toasted and grainy malt, caramel, grassy hops, nuts, and some herbalness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. It’s also smooth and easy enough to drink. I think it’s a good enough Oktoberfest beer, definitely worth a try. $7.99 a bottle.

Jewel like amber color out of the bottle with a small beige head and a sweet malty nose. Flavors of raw grain, sweet caramel, some buttered toast and leather. There is a thin patina of bitter hops. This is a full flavored octoberfest beer.

22oz bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Nick!. Looks solid; a transparent copper with razor-thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; sweet malt with light dough and some hop notes. Good on the palate too. An excellent example of the style.
