More tasting notes on O’Fest beers. Here we have an all American line up
Stoudts – Oktoberfest
The First lady of American Brewing, Carol Stoudt, makes a number of traditional beer styles with this on target Oktoberfest being one of their best. Lighter in body then some of the others on this page with just the right balance of hop and malt working well together.
Lakefront Brewing – Oktoberfest
The smell and taste of bready malts and lager yeast fills the senses in this glass of fest beer from Milwaukee. Amber color and full bodied taste make this drinker a must find for fans of the style.
Left Hand – Oktoberfest
This fest bier from the brewers at Longmont, Co boasts a lagering period that lasts a full two month. A typical amber lager, bready nose with lingering sweet malt on the tongue.
Magic Hat – HEX Ourtoberfest
While this beer is a made with ale yeast instead of a lager yeast, that doesn’t stop Ourtoberfest from being a perfectly quaff-able hybrid of a classic style featuring all German ales yeast, malts and hops. The label for Ourtoberfest forsakes the Bavarian themes in favor of Halloween witchery!
Highland – Clawhammer
One of the cleanest lagers around comes from one of North Carolina’s longest running brewers. Named for a nearby mountain in the Smokies, Clawhammer hits all the style notes in color, body, nose and taste. Could easily go up against the well made Sam Adams Oktoberfest.
