Otter Creek Oktoberfest

78 / 100

As you've seen below, I've woefully neglected Oktoberfest this year and now it's gone. Well, the real one has ended, us Americans think it last from Oct 1-31. I guess with that, I can have solace that it's still alive. Thankfully the BeerMonthClub did not neglet this fine.

This is certainly not to style of your Märzen / Oktoberfest, this is definitely an ale. That said, this is not terribly different in flavor either. The beer poured a deep amber in my footed pilsener glass. There was a caramel sweetness, but also a slight bready aroma. Taste: the sweetness of the nose balances well with a roasted malt background with a German hop flavor finish. The missus and I enjoyed this after dinner, watching some television. The sweetness gave it a dessert appeal while the malts and hops levelled it out.
