This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

Bottle. Dark ruddy amber. Small rapidly vanishing tan head. Nose is malty and fruity with light spicy hops and orange notes. Taste brings a bit more orange out with light caramel, some bready malts, and light spicy notes. There’s some graininess as well. Body is medium with some chewiness and above average carbonation. Finishes with more malt, caramel, some bread, and fruits. Lingering spicy hops as well.

OK ... I’m starting to think that this is what an Oktoberfest tastes like, and I don’t love it. Great clear copper pour with a moderate tan head that vanishes immediately, leaving no lace. Taste of caramel and spice (nice), malts (nice), and some strange fruity / vegetable aftertaste that I don’t care for at all. Smooth and round in the mouth, but almost dead feel ... very little carbonation.

hopscotch (10658) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle... Clear copper lager with a small, tight, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. Toasted nuts and caramel nose. Caramel-sweet flavor with decent hop crispness and bitterness to keep things nearly balanced. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet; bordering on crisp.

12 oz. bottle. Had a malty sweet and spicy aromas to it. Amber/orange body color with decent head. Flavor had a mild to medium spice bitterness that was balanced out with some sweet malt. Left a cherry tomatto aftertaste on the palate. Decent brew.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 The clear, amber colored body topped by a one finger thick head gave this pour into the mug a classic look. Smell was also authentic, which is to say quite malty with a touch of spice. Taste was a little too sweet and underattenuated to be a good fest bier. Oddly earthy hop bitterness kept lingering on, and felt out of place for the style. Was this only 6% ABV, as it became too much of a tedium to drink rapidly. Is this a bold interpretation of the style, or is it good intentions gone wrong? Hard to say for sure.
