12 ounce bottle
Thanks to buffalohead for sharing a fine Oktoberfest. A reasonable introduction to Westbrook gives me the sense that rather than going big or trying to make everything sour they’d rather focus on the basics. Depending on how hard this is to acquire I might trade for a few more of their regulars once I make some room in the cellar or do more traveling.
Aroma / Appearance - A semifluid caramel base supports a pillar of thin head. Butterscotch, honey, and light malts open up over the course of a few minutes. Clean and simple, it gets the job done with much flash.
Flavor / Palate - Light maltiness sweetens the palate. A bit of polish carries the mouthfeel to a refreshing finish of caramel and honey. No wonder the brewery has so much buzz right now. If they ever expand into the Ohio market I’ll definitely grab a couple of bottles at the local store.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightly hazy copper - nose of caramelized sugars, toasted bread, light fruity esters, a bit of spiciness - fairly nice texture - flavor is toasty malt, but borders pretty dang close to tasting burnt - however, this works to an extent as there is a moderate bitterness that plays with it decently - moderately warming spiciness, caramel - it’s pretty enjoyable despite the mild burnt character.

Dark amber with a light wrote head. Aroma is vaguely nutty with a bit of malt. Strong, malt forward flavor with a touch of nuttiness. Full body, vaguely sweet with a funky bitter finish.

On tap pouts he park nice Amber with gold highlights. Minimal head, most of wet grains. Philly soft pretzel. Btw the way u kno it’s a philly pretzel b/c of urine content. That’s just an fyi and only soft pretzel that matters to this bro. Light to medium body. Well done. Still can taste the salt. Yum.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy dark copper with a thin white foamy cap. Nice nose of toasted biscuit and caramelized bread, with a very subtle sausage note underneath. Smooth and biscuity flavor with a big spritzy carbonation and a little toast and semisweet malty undertone. A wee bit generic and bone dry on the finish.
