COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year’s version of Deschutes Brewery’s Oktoberfest utilizes German Pilsner and Munich malts, as well as German Perle and Hallertau hops. This year, we tried a very traditional method of acidification in our brew kettle. We used a sour wort strain we received from the Distelhauser Brewery in Tauberbischofsheim, Germany. Say that after a couple of pints…we grew this mixture or organisms in 4 gallons of our unhopped Mirror Pond wort and added it directly to our brew kettle for a refreshing, zippy finish on this beer. IBU’s 58

At the PDX brewery. Pours a reddish copper color with a medium white head. A light floral nose, bready sweet malts. The flavor is mild spicy hops, sweet toasted malts, toffee, a bit of dry earthiness. Quite good.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice aroma with good roasty malt and light hops. The flavor was terrific. I liked the finish of this beer. As usual Deschutes does not disappoint.

The sweetness in the background really makes this beer. Still a bit thin on the body. But all around decent beer. Deschutes portland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
