It’s not the best Octoberfest beer out there by any means, but it always sells out in Texas, especially Houston area. The bright notes from the imperial are great but the beer is just missing something on the back side.

Bottle. Poured orange with a quick, fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts. The flavor found caramel with a light hop and spiced background. Medium body with a subdued malt aftertaste.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Murky amber with attractive red highlights. Rich malt body with slight accents of cherry and raspberry. Flavour begins and ends with a full malt character, plus nuances of fruit and hot spice. Fairly nice.

GABF 2011. Clear golden amber with a dissipating head. Funky stale biscuit malt aroma with a small touch of toffee. Taste was malty and dry toffee biscuity, slightly sweet and has a bit of wheat bread to it.

One of the more robust and flavorful Oktoberfest style brews that I have enjoyed lately! I just wish it was a tad bit thicker in the body. Another fine brew from Saint Arnold and one that is not heavy in any way so it can be enjoyed repeatedly throughout the day. This would be a good dessert type beer with some bread pudding or rum cake!

Ah, finally the Summer Pils season has ended and we head into the meat of Saint Arnold’s seasonal line-up. On tap in a pint glass it came to the table with no head whatsoever but I’m blaming the bartender.

Sixer from Spec’s in Austin. Pour is reddish amber with quickly dissipating head. Very clear and clean. Aroma is malty, bready and slightly earthy on the front, with a definite alcohol bite at the finish. Taste is slightly sour, slightly sweet. Not a hoppy beer, but a good, clean drinking one. Trivia: this beer is made with an ale yeast rather than a lager yeast, techincally making it a Scottish Ale rather than a Marzen (Oktoberfest). It has won awards in the Scottish Ale category. Like most Saint Arnolds Seasonals, I like it. A good twist on the Oktoberfest style. As a bonus, the box/label art is nice as well.
