Mother Old School Oktoberfest

Mother Old School Oktoberfest

Tasted non blind on October 22, 2012. Served from Pint sized bottle. 5.5% ABV.

Amber color in the glass, clear looking throughout with a short, somewhat quick head. Nose of malt, wet stones and a bit of spice. Flavors of malt, bread, a dash of sweet red cherry and a little hops on the finish. Pretty crisp on the palate with a clean finish. Good body, easy drinking beer. Good to very good. Let’s call this one three and a half stars out of five.

Notes from brewery website:

Old School Oktoberfest is a traditional amber lager brewed to celebrate the fall harvest. Extended aging creates a medium bodied beer with a smooth malty flavor and just the faintest touch of hops. Pull up your lederhosen, raise a stein, Ein Prosit!
