Good try for a Oktomberfest brew by Upland brewing. Maybe something good does come out of Bloomington #Boilerup

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a pretty decent Oktoberfest, not too sweet and good and malty. It is clear orange w/ a patchy white head. Its nose is herbal hops with a hint of malted barley. The malt really jumps out at you once you taste it, very rich and toasty, clean and full flavored. This is relatively light bodied for a malt-centric brew and along w/ brisk carbonation keeps it abnormally drinkable for a style that is often sweet and heavy. This is a style I enjoy but is rarely done very well. I came across this rather old and it’s still very good. I hope I remember to pick up a sixer fresh next year.

Too sweet, with a drying and sweet finish. Not much hop presence, with a cereal body and light mouthfeel.
