Beer Stories
History states that the first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 for the commemoration of the marriage between Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Keeping up with Erie Brewing Company’s German brewing influence, our brewer created Fallenbock. This brew is a classic Oktoberfest Lager which creates a harmonious marriage of classic malts and hops;resulting in a wonderful clean crisp flavor. Happy Autumn!

I’m glad the goat does fall and not just spring. Nice looking, reddish, with a thick creamy looking tan head. Large aroma, a bit spicy, earthy, nutty and malty. A bit of cherry in the palate, creamy mouthfeel, a bit sour, a touch of prunes, and that is about it. A little on the light side, but tasty. Very thin watery finish.

Pours a clear mahogany with medium light tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, nuts, spices, and slight chocolate. Flavor matches well and makes for a nice drink, but I think doppelbock would be a stretch. Has the consistency and heartiness of a bock. Decent brew nonetheless.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7521) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark chestnut color with a medium sized dark tan head. The aroma was woody, nutty and lightly roasty. The flavor was tangy, roasty and woody with a light nutty undertone and a touch of smoke. The finish was long nutty and woody. Medium body. Solid.

Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Not too bad. This one has a nice clear, dark brown look and rich malty aroma to it. The flavor is rich and malty with some bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent offering out of Erie, PA.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Bottle Pours a nice dark brown with a thin tan head. The head disapates quickly but laces okay. Aroma is of malts with chocolate, sweet molassas, and some bread. Has a okay carbonation. The flavor is light bit decent. Has very mild touches of roastedness, and spices. Has a medium body. Alcohol is well hidden. Has a soft finish with a weak aftertaste. Not a bad beer but is on the light side.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Pours a fading beige head and a brown body. Smells of toasted bread with a caramel spread. Flavor is toffee, biscuit, roasted. Decent body.

bottle. Dark brown in color with a small but well retaining off white head and moderate carbonation. Aroma: malty, with chocolate, molasses, a touch of fig- clean. Taste: chocolate, molasses, medium bodied, smooth and clean. Alcohol well hidden. A bit light for the abv, but thought this was pretty solid- clean, no flaws noted.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle in trade as an extra from hopdog. Thanks Steve! Pours dark maroon to brown with a light beige head. Smell is nutty and malty. Taste is very malty with a nutty creamy flavor being prominent. Bit of a watery to normal mouthfeel with soft slightly lifeless carbonation. Creamy nutty flavor with just a faint twinge of hops in there, but still thin and malty, overall. Not bad but gets a tad thin and sweet as I finish it off.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts and grains. Poured amber/brown in color with no head at all. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Some small particles. Lightly sweet flavor. Tastes of chocolate malts, dried oak leaves, slight coffee, resin, and cream. Medium body. Thin, watery texture. Soft to average carbonation. Malty, bready finish.

bag (106) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2008
From bottle... poured dark, purplish-brown with minimal head. Pretty nice aroma -- chocolate malt with some hops. Other than that, it was unimpressive. Little flavor, and no life to it. Oh well.
