COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ancient timelines talk of dark days, plagued by hardships and Kingdom demands. When hope was all but lost, a legend emerged. A plumber. With copper pipes and an uncanny wit, he battled fierce foes and saw to the brewery’s opening. Our Octoberfest is malty, smooth and exceedingly drinkable. It is perfect to celebrate and honor today’s legends. We use locally grown wheat from MA, Munich malt and noble hops. 14.5°P

On tap at The Ginger Man, pours a hazy copper orange with a small off-white head. Nose is very restrained, with toasted bready notes. Flavour is clean, with notes of sweet bready malt, a little corn and a touch of toasted caramel. Very malt-heavy, with good drinkability.

Boutip (6433) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2016
Can: Poured a clear light amber color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light dry caramel malt with some nice cereal notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is a nice mxi of dry caramel malt with some clear cereal notes and a smooth finish. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation. It is too bad I don’t have access this beer on a regular basis. Great example of the style.

On tap somewhere in New Hampshire. Really nice Oktoberfest, sweet and malty but not too sweet.

From the 2016 batch can. It pours a lovely looking medium amber with a modest head that fades after a moment. Decent clarity. Toasted bread and sweet caramel malt presence on the nose with a low to no hop profile. Medium body. The taste is just as sweet as the aroma suggest it would be with a clean, mildly dry finish. Good for the season.

16 oz can from Whole Foods-Chelsea. Copper color with an off-white head and some spotty lacing. Rich, malty aroma. Caramel, toasted bread, and citrus. Tastes malt forward, somewhat sweet, with a lighter hop backbone. Easy drinking beer. Nice, clean, and still, at the same time, flavorful. Pretty good stuff.

Has a nice balance of caramel sweetness and nutmeg spiciness. Combined with a light but not too watery mouthfeel it’s very refreshing. The finish is abrupt. Far from complex it’s a simple, session, go to seasonal session brew. Also a great value.

Great Octoberfest, from Jack’s Abby. One of the better seasonal releases. Familiar, but very smooth drinking.

Can at home while preparing dinner after hella stress filled day. Copper pour fine head. Nose is toasted malt and earth. Tastes of malt, wheat, other grains, fresh hay, earthy. Clean smooth palate. I’m a sucker for oktoberfests and this is a good one.
