Style: “Oktoberfest” lager.
Purchased for $11/4 pint cans
Appearance: Amber with a big foamy head.
Nose: Sweet malt with a slightly sour, yeasty aroma.
Palate: Medium bodied. Dark malt,
Finish: Lightly roasted malt with a nice hit of hoppy bitterness on the back end.
Parting words: I know Oktoberfest season is coming to an end, but I’m a slow beer drinker. This beer is a fine example of the style and is very food friendly, as it should be. Went well with fromage fort, pretzels with mustard and even pecan wood smoked baby back ribs. The price could be lower, but it’s a tasty seasonal beer and I’m a big fan of craft pint cans. Rochester Mills Celebration Lager is recommended.
