COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Clutch hitting in the post-season - that’s what gave Reggie Jackson the nickname "Mr. October." Well, it’s the post-season-with-the-most-reason to pick up a brew: Oktoberfest! And this clutch hitter combines the heavy hitting of an Oktoberfest beer with the soft touch of a British pub ale. If there’s such a thing as English Marzen, this is it, and we dig it. Something a little different for the post-season. Malts: Pale Ale, Crystal, Wheat, Light Munich Hops: Saaz, Glacier IBU:36

Pours with a fading off-white head in a tulip glass and a copper reddish-golden body. Aroma is sweet with caramel, molasses and some toastiness. Taste is surprisingly of strawberries and cream, caramel, and some husky grain. Nice carbonation with a light body for the style.

I think the attempt to mix an ale style and lager style worked in this situation. Decent beer. May be interesting to try to compare to other Oktoberfests. Serving: Bottle

Copper red pour. Malty caramel and toffee with a hint of hops in the aroma. Smooth malt, toffee and a nice hop bitterness. Decent brew.

drowland (8827) - Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2010
4/19/10. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. The pour is a light amber with lots of orange and plenty of floaties, all under a 2-finger fuzzy white head. The aroma is pretty mild, but with a hint of chocolate and roasted malts along with lager yeast. The flavor is a bit tinny but follows with caramel malt and big roasted malt, a bit much for the style, but not terrible.
