Picked up the Oktoberfest 4 pack for $22 at LCBO. Comes in a handsome package offering 4 varieties of Fall drinking goodness. Love the playful packaging & design. And the beer? Pours cherry wood dark with a beautiful one inch milkshake-like cap. Aroma is muted. Interesting start to the flavour here with pepper & bitter malts with little to no aftertaste. An interesting take on an old school style.

Pours a hazy copper colour with sediment and a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is citrusy orange, perfumy, grainy, spicy rye, and a bit earthy. Flavour is a definite spicy, grainy, earthy, citrus, medium bitterness and some caramel.

600ml bottle. Pours dark amber brown with large off-white head. Unfiltered; there is some sediment. Very low carbo. Aroma is faint, a little orange peel and a hint of soap. Taste is largely an earthy hop bitterness and rye bread. Little bit of caramel sweetness. Finish is mostly dry and body is full. Overall, much more interesting than the Jekyll.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Wvrst. Hazy amber with a foamy cream head. Carbonation is active and light. Aroma is sweet cereal and caramel maltiness, classic German hops (grassy, mineral, slight citrus). Bready. Medium smooth mouthfeel. Slight saltiness. Balanced and bitter grass an minerals on the finish. I wasn’t impressed at first, but it warned up nicely. It’s solid given the challenge of this being an unpopular style, they did a good job. Not mind blowing, but much like other Beau’s offerings, I could drink a few of these and not complain.
