COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of an Oktoberfest-style beer. We named this beer for Rick’s late brother Bob; the person who sparked his interest in brewing lager beers in general and Oktoberfest beers in particular. Bright amber color. Rich, malty, and smooth, with a just touch of clean hop bitterness. If you can’t make it to Munich this fall, this beer is the next best thing. Bobtoberfest is released in September. (1.015 BG, 5.40%, 22 IBU, 9 SRM)

Bobtoberfest was the least expensive beer I enjoyed in OR ($1.50 for 4 ounces), and it was also once of the most enjoyable beers of the trip. Well-made German-style beer from the states just makes me so damn happy. I have to conclude that Bobtoberfest is one of the best American-made Oktberfests. It's so smooth, cohesive, and drinkable that it's difficult to appreciate its elements. This is a beer that wants to be gulped down quickly. Grainy and sweet malt aromas. Flavors of toffee, apricot, honey, caramel, and biscuit. Finish is clean and lightly hoppy. Marvelous stuff.

Draught. Dark amber with thin white head. Malty aroma with some caramel. Flavour is sweet malt with enough bitterness to keep it from getting cloying. Long malt finish

Bottle in Seattle. Psyched to have them distributed up here now. Clear brown-orange appearance, very nice. Creamy thin head. Honey and bitter caramel malts on nose. Very smooth sip. Nice grain flavors, with a dark caramel note. Touch of honey. Very tasty.

Not a bad Oktoberfest beer, but personally I prefer the ones that have a larger amount of Vienna malt in them for that roasty toasty finish that keeps me coming back for more.

Pours a murky orange no lacing. The aroma is caramel and biscuit. This is definitely infected, some bugs in here for sure

(Bouteille à Bottlecraft): Un mélange de pétales de rose, de cassonade et de mélasse docile. Une présence modérée de l’aspect épicé ouvre la porte vers une dimension supplémentaire. Superbe.

Bomber pours clear copper with a well formed one finger white head. Aroma is caramel, nutty, biscuit, and honey. The flavor is nicely balanced, moderate honey and caramel sweetness, mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very crisp and drinkable. Excellent offering for the style. The heat is on.

Picked a Bonner up while visiting The Hop Grenade in Concord, CA. I’ve had a couple others from HA and damn do they make some fine beers. Dark amber pour with a slight white head. Malty caramel nose. Perfect balance of roasted caramel, just a touch of bitterness and a dry finish with a full mouthfeel. Really good.

4.2
Capa (3448) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Orange with a white head. Toasted malt, earthy hops, medium clean and bitter finish. Slight dry end. No caramel sweetness, which is nice. Very enjoyable. Would drink this all year. (2016 version at Horse Brass Pub)
