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)

Style: Marzen

ABV: 5.4%

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.
