Fall is in the air and Oktoberfests are in my glass! My last brew was a tough act to follow, but this one did so quite admirably.
Beer Name: Oktoberfest
Brewery: Zero Gravity Craft Brewery (Burlington, VT)
Description: The Vermont brewery’s take on this fall favorite. Brewing specs are available on their website.
Appearance: Came out of the can to a cloudy copper body topped by a beige colored finger of foam
Smell: Subtle toasted malt with just a hint of sweetness.
Taste: Smooth and subdued. It had faint notes of sweet malt and lager yeast to start which were followed by an equally mellow toasted malt presence on the end. A very clean, easy going beverage.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a touch less than moderate carbonation.
Hype: None on my end. This was pretty much a random pickup based on the style.
Overall: Another good one! It didn’t pack much of a “wow” factor but it was an immensely satisfying beer to sit outside with on a cool fall day.
