COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Oktoberfest is a classic German style with roasted malt and caramel flavors balanced by a mild hop bitterness. This beer was traditionally served at the start of fall in celebration of the harvests. Our Oktoberfest is pale copper-color lager. It pairs well with warm pretzels and lederhosen.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Clear amber pour with fair layer of near white head. Clean and not offensive, but weak on aroma. Flavor is slightly nutty and toasted and metallic, and all around just not nearly as good as the Sam Adams version.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Draft @ Brews ’n Blues fest in Gloucester VA: Lightly toasted barley malt and dried leaves aroma, with hints of spice, perhaps cloves. Clear dark amber thin head, decent lacing. Barley malt, dried leaves, potpourri flavor. Medium body, maybe a touch too much for the style but still ok. More bitter in the end than most Octoberfests. Quite similar to the Fall Bock I’m told it is replacing in the brewer’s seasonal offerings. This beer was very popular at the event where I was a volunteer.

12oz bottle fresh from the brewery. Pours a pretty classic, clear copper color with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is chalk dust, corn tortillas and a little sweet malt. Medium bodied. Flavor is really light and kinda boring.
