COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As a brewery, we haven’t been brewing lagers for a while. This or that has kept us distanced from that world, but we’re dipping back in with a release that’s coming to you on Friday 10/28. You can expect a beer that’s much like an Octoberfest, with a sturdy malt frame, but cloaked under the cover of October’s timely neighbor, November. Come see us and take a drive through Lager Town

Tasted on tap at Quencher’s Salon. It poured a clear amber with a whisky head. Mild malt aroma with a slightly sweet spiced October taste with a hint of rye. Tasty fall brew.

Very slightly hazy orange, mild white head. Sweet orange citrus, light spices, mild grain. Fairly strong bitterness, some sweetness through the finish. Heavier body, some oiliness. Decently carbonated. Longer finish. Good.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours copper with a white head. Taste slightly sweet, spice, touch of caramel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frank (4045) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Tasted blind: This is really an excellent festbier. It’s cloudy orange amber w/ a foamy head. It’s got a big floral hop nose. It’s nice and bitter, dry and slightly fruity. I’d say this is not perfectly style but it’s delicious so that’s good enough for this guy.

In a flight at Hackney’s Printers Row. Crackery, toasty malt. A bit earthy. Herbal dry finish. Pretty dry for the style.

Bottle. Pour is hazy dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of pale malt, biscuit, slight citrus, spice, and rye bread. Finish is malty and spicy.

MartinT (9499) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Bright herbal hops and biscuity cereals share the stage, as toastiness and bitterness slowly establish themselves on the palate. This is one fine lager, folks.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the shiny red.
-Hops possess the amazing ability to go beyond herbaceousness and explore oranges and cinnamon angles.
-Effervescence is soft, which leaves plenty of room for the delicate flavors to shine.
-Drinkability is very high, as the mouthfeel is crisp.
-This may be hoppier than your average German-made Festbier, but it works amazingly well here.

Bottle.

Lubiere (13061) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
A reddish copper lager with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, crisp biscuit malt with herbaceous grassy hops, light lemony notes, light mineral notes, nice. In mouth, nice crisp fruity biscuit malt with grassy hops, light grapefruit, nice herbaceous character, well done. Bottle at Revolution Milwaukee location.

DuffMan (9643) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle, shared around the table at Revolution Brewpub. Compared to Revolution’s Oktoberfest on tap, this had less malt impact and a drier finish. Still a nice fall dark lager, and kudos for cool label art.
