This traditional German Oktoberfest style beer is brewed with the highest quality German malt & hops. Available during the fall season on tap and in 16oz Cans. The Fest is crafted in small batches at Cottrell Brewery in Pawcatuck, CT and at the award-winning High Falls Brewery in Rochester, NY under the supervision of Brew-master Sean Larkin. Vienna, Pilsner, Light and Dark Munich malts make up the backbone of this beast, and Northern Brewer & Tettnanger hops are added to give it a crisp but subtle hop flavor.

Pours an apricot color with a nice white head that lasts. Light malt aroma. Mild malt taste that has some mild bite on the back side. VERY easy to drink. A bit thin though. Not a bad beer!

Ahh. Finally a Rhode Island Beer though I suspect brewed at a brewery I bike past sometimes on my way home from work. Very light, a bit malty, but no off notes. Some grain. Refreshing. More toward a straight lager than an Okt but it works.

Pretty much bought it for another Rhode Island tick and because it wasn’t a basic pale lager. Not but not terribly exciting. A light hint of some caramel notes and Tettnanger hops. Okay.

Can at keg no. 229. Pours a dark brick red color with a black shadow. Head hades and stays on the sides of the glass. Easy drinking but not much substance and has a skunky aftertaste

Pours a clear, golden amber with an above average macro head. Easy drinking with caramel notes. A bit a cardboard finish,but a decent, refreshing beer.

Presentation: It was poured from a 12 oz can into small German style mug. The can lists the abv at 5.5% abv and there is a short description of the beer as well. Appearance: The color is a beautiful deep orange amber with great clarity and plenty of visible carbonation. From the aggressive pour I got a tall, white and frothy head. It settles down fairly quick and just maintains a wispy thin film covering. Lacing is minimal and very slick. Smell: It has a very malty nose with earthy hops for balance. Mostly I pick notes of caramel, toffee, fresh bread Taste / Palate: The flavor is classic German lager all the way. It has a fresh bready maltiness loaded with a nutty, caramel and nougat like character. Hops adds a light earthy dryness and bitterness. The feel is right on for the style and very drinkable.

Reviewed from notes. This was often poured into a mug but it has also been poured into pint glasses and pilsener glasses and it’s always looked the same. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute. There was some light speckled lacing the sides and it leaves some rings. The smell was nice and malty, slight roast with some nuts to it. The taste was mainly sweet but had a nice roasty nuttiness to it. The p was about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionable aspect about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Oktoberfest styled beer worthy of having again.

(can - 16 oz) Pale gold pour with white head. Very light sweet malt aroma. Smooth and malty with a rather sweet and slightly bitter finish.
