COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Recreation of an authentic German Oktoberfest beer from the early 1900s. This amber lager has a rich malty aroma, a smooth toasty palate, and subtle noble hop finish. The richness and spiciness of this beer make it the perfect accompaniment to robust meats and grilled fare. Oktoberfest is a great beer for any festive occasion.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Tap at Studio Square’s Craft Beer Week Fest 2009: Hazy deep copper with a light tan film. Some soft fruity amber malt notes in the aroma with a touch of fruity U.S. hops. Creamy soft body- some vegetal in the flavor with a fruity malt character and perhaps a touch of diacetyl- yet it’s overlook-able. One dimensional and doesn’t feel German.

HoppityHop (171) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2009 Dark copper color with a little bit of an off white head. Malty and complex, with a nice blend of hops coming through in the aftertaste. Very drinkable and tasty. Well made example of the style. (Added note on 3/13/09: Newer batches of this beer seem to have some wheat thrown into the grain bill, possibly to make it stand out from High Point’s previously similar Oktoberfest?)
