The Southeast's first organic lager, Pisgah Oktoberfest leans more toward authentic German domestic versions of this seasonal favorite. Golden in color, the subtle malt body and rounded biscuit flavor set it apart from typical export and American versions. Using a special Bavarian lager yeast, Pisgah's interpretation of this classic style is what you would find in a Munich bier garden this time of year.

A good strait forward oktober fest, nothing special beyond it being a good festival beer.

Keg at the brewery. Very last pour before it kicked. Nice! Pours a clear copper with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel, banana, toasted malt, mild floral hops. The taste is toffee, caramel, dark fruits, citrus. Medium bodied.

Pint at Brewery. Ok aroma. Sweet. Malty. Nutty. Biscuity. Clean brownish orange color. Good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body smooth creamy mouthfeel. Crisp sweet finish. Good. Solid to style. Nothing to distinguish.

Tasty but not too exciting. We tried it at the brewery in a sample package and this one was the least interesting of the four. But hey it is October and I’m on my honeymoon so I have nothing but love for this beer.

Draft at Barley’s Taproom in Asheville, NC. Poured a slightly hazy light orange color. Head was thin and white. Not much lace was left behind at the end. The aroma was subdued overall with only some light grassy hops. Tasted of biscuity malt with fresh vegetable undertones. There was also light spicy malt at the end accompanied by a noble hop flavor. So so.
