COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ancient timelines talk of dark days, plagued by hardships and Kingdom demands. When hope was all but lost, a legend emerged. A plumber. With copper pipes and an uncanny wit, he battled fierce foes and saw to the brewery’s opening. Our Octoberfest is malty, smooth and exceedingly drinkable. It is perfect to celebrate and honor today’s legends. We use locally grown wheat from MA, Munich malt and noble hops. 14.5°P

Boutip (5902) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2016
Can: Poured a clear light amber color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light dry caramel malt with some nice cereal notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is a nice mxi of dry caramel malt with some clear cereal notes and a smooth finish. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation. It is too bad I don’t have access this beer on a regular basis. Great example of the style.

On tap somewhere in New Hampshire. Really nice Oktoberfest, sweet and malty but not too sweet.

puboflyons (3101) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 22, 2016
From the 2016 batch can. It pours a lovely looking medium amber with a modest head that fades after a moment. Decent clarity. Toasted bread and sweet caramel malt presence on the nose with a low to no hop profile. Medium body. The taste is just as sweet as the aroma suggest it would be with a clean, mildly dry finish. Good for the season.

ben4321 (5700) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2016
16 oz can from Whole Foods-Chelsea. Copper color with an off-white head and some spotty lacing. Rich, malty aroma. Caramel, toasted bread, and citrus. Tastes malt forward, somewhat sweet, with a lighter hop backbone. Easy drinking beer. Nice, clean, and still, at the same time, flavorful. Pretty good stuff.

growler6 (127) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Has a nice balance of caramel sweetness and nutmeg spiciness. Combined with a light but not too watery mouthfeel it’s very refreshing. The finish is abrupt. Far from complex it’s a simple, session, go to seasonal session brew. Also a great value.

Great Octoberfest, from Jack’s Abby. One of the better seasonal releases. Familiar, but very smooth drinking.

Jow (3460) - New York, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Can at home while preparing dinner after hella stress filled day. Copper pour fine head. Nose is toasted malt and earth. Tastes of malt, wheat, other grains, fresh hay, earthy. Clean smooth palate. I’m a sucker for oktoberfests and this is a good one.

tapefuzz (128) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2016
16oz can. Pours copper with a large, foamy white head. Dull, metallic aroma of caramel malt with some yeast notes. Taste is sweet malt initially with a lightly yeasty, mildly bitter hop finish. The yeast lingers a bit. Medium-bodied with a solid, creamy yet crisp mouthfeel. Relatively low carbonation.

Chalumeaux (1041) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Poured from can dated 7/27/16 clear copper color with thin white head. Aromas of yeast caramel malt and floral notes. Taste is slightly sweet vanilla caramel bread yeast and balanced spice. Nice beer.

N3lson1 (991) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice clear coppery, golden color with frothy white head. Picking up mostly malts on the aroma with some earthy hops. Taste is crisp and clear, but has a bit of a creamy vanilla taste too it. Not a bad Oktoberfest.
