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

GoufCustom (1614) - HONG KONG - DEC 6, 2015

355 ml bottle bought at The Bottle Shop in Sai Kung.

Looks: Translucent orange honey colour; One finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 1 minute. Excellent sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet full malt, with strong honey, floral nectar, caramel, toffee, bread, yeast, citron tea and thin grass.

Taste: Strong sweet malt, with caramel, floral, strong honey, strong molasses, thick bread, yeast, moderate lemon, light bitter hops and light grass.

Body: Clos eot medium. Slick and smooth palate.

Mouth Feel: Rich maltyness in a solid and fairly creamy caramel background. Lots of good floral honey sweetness you don’t find cloying nor getting tired of, soaked with light lemon and good breadyness. Excellent!

Hoppiness: Floral nectar, citron tea and thin grass in nose. Floral, moderate lemon and light grass in taste. Bitterness is fairly light for an abrupt, light astringent sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Nice sweet and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one’s aroma and taste is so similar to Neuschwansteiner Edelmärzen - Solid maltyness with strong and likeable floral and honey elements in aroma and taste and just enough hops for a relaxng experience. The only difference is that this cost a lot less for easy enjoyment. Will buy again for sure. Lovely!

Given the name I was expecting a copper or amber ale. Fine that it wasn't though as this was an above average Marzen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berard (627) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2015

Fluted beer glass at restaurant. Golden yellow with the slightest ting of red. Thin white head. Aroma is honey biscuit aroma. Tasty is sweet, uncomplicated and malty. Medium thin body. Overall not a great Oktoberfest in my opinion.
