COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Försöksbrygd oktober 2009. Humlad med Perle, Hallertau och Amarillo. 14.0 Plato.

Periskop upp! Den amerikanska humlekontinenten i sikte! En däckslast nyskördad Saazerhumle från europas östra hörn står redo att möta sin amerikanska utmanare Amarillo i en batalj om smaklökarna. Vår moderna tolkning av det klassiska oktoberfestölet erbjuder det bästa av två världar. Ett kraftfullt öl!

Red October är en säsongsprodukt.

Doft
Komplex malt- och humlearomatisk doft med inslag av torkad frukt, örter och citrus.

Smak
Nyanserad, humlearomatisk med tydlig beska, inslag av ljus sirap, apelsinskal, rågbröd och örter.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Amber red, tanned head. Smells of dust, caramel, hints of other hops. Light sweet, quite dry and crisp. Moderate bitter finish, some dust and grass. Totally my opinion of this beer can be described as this.... Where the f%#%& is the amarillo?

Bottle at home. The colour is golden amber with a medium off-white head. Aromas of leather, wood, wild berries and caramel. More leather in the flavour along with oak, sweet malt and grass. Reminds me a bit of a pilsener. Has a soft and rich mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. Easy-drinking and tasteful, and quite bitter beer.

tfredvik (1150) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2012
Clear copper body with a quite large, creamy, off-white head that is very long-lived: it takes a long time before the head settles as a thick layer that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma that is mainly malty and sweet with caramel and pale malts. According to the label this is supposed to be hopped with Saaz and Amarillo (is this another version than the test brew from 2009?), but I don’t get any US hops notes. I hardly get any hop notes at all, to be honest. Some faint sweet fruity notes with hints of citrus, perhaps. Light sweet taste with a moderate but quite sharp bitter finish. The caramel sweetness partially tames the sharpness. In addition to the caramel, the flavours include fruits and some metal. Medium body, moderate to soft carbonation. Not that interesting.
[33 cl bottle, 6% ABV, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

No head retention at all, really... Not much aroma, some toasty/bready aromas if any. Smooth palate with mild herbal, spicy and slight citrus. It’s okay i guess, as a thirst quencher. Nothing i’d drink a lot of.

Pours amber rose with a small and quickly dissipating off white head. Aromas of crystal malt, a little metallic. Nice healthy maltiness in the mouth, some dried fruit and caramel. Some bitterness at the end. Nice beer, but needs more malty concentration.

Really good smell. The taste is also quite lovely. This kind of October beer you just want to drink more of. The aftertaste is left for a while but is perfectly okay taste-wise. I’d probably buy a few more hours in October because it was so good.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2012
Medium beige head. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Earthy floral caramelly aroma with spicy floral notes. Dry earthy papery metallic taste with spicy grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry earthy roasty soy sauce aftertaste with minty cocos and metal notes. Not really all that nice; too harsh. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Nordstan, Göteborg.)
