COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden amber in color, our Oktoberfest is brewed with generous blends of imported malt and hops. This Limited Edition Lager is delightfully balanced and very smooth. A perfect complement to autumn!

Mid range quality on this beer. Orange color. Malt in the flavor and aroma. Some caramel, and just a little sweet with some dryness in the finish.

Copper with good, creamy beige head / Lightly sweet, malt nose / Medium body with hop backbone and good finish / Flavors of burnt sugar, tangerine, and a touch of pine on the finish / Surprisingly good effort from Mendocino.

On-tap, served in a stein mug. Poured a clear reddish copper with a rocky slightly off-white head, slowly settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Plentiful supply of flowing micro bubbles. Aromas of toasted grain bread, hints of caramel, light apple fruitiness and subtle herbal hops. Crisp medium body, a tad too much carbonation for my liking, but overall, a smooth drinker. Grain bready in the beginning, ending with a nice toasted sweet caramel. The mild fruitiness has the taste of white raisins sprinkled over a wedge of green apple. Softly earthy hops add a spiciness to the dry nutty caramel finish. Not a bad seasonal offering from Mendocino, better than I was expecting, surprised to see it on-tap.

Sampled from bottle. Flavor was that of citrus and tart fruit. Flavor was decent enough, and a surprise result from most of the Oktoberfest beers I’ve been having lately.

Good citrus apple flavor on tap at the Oasis. Good maltyines but low hop flavor. Pleasing pour when on tap.

I also tasted the apple-citrus flavor. It was slightly sweet and slightly tart. The first mouthfull was definately a surprise, but it didn’t hold up for the rest of the glass. It’s an okay beer, but I wont go out of my way to find it again.

Poured a bright copper hue. Head disappeared quickly with little lacing. Had an apple-citrus flavor with a slight maltiness. Mouthfeel was pleasant. An interesting brew but not my favorite Octoberfest.

Pours a clear, copper red color with a medium, but well-retained off white head. Smells of mild light malts, maybe some light fruits in there too. Nothig too exciting. The taste had a profound little sweet fruitiness to it, mixed in with some cinnamon spice and malts. i didnt get much of a hop presence, only a touch of it in the finish. Aftertaste was mildly bitter, with a sweet coating on the palate. Not a bad brew, from a style I’m not usually excited about.

Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with pizza.
