3.6/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: no head to speak of with my pour on an amber with golden hues clear body

S: toasted and caramel maltiness at the level of a barleywine with sweet, sour and tart notes.

T: malty and spicey with sweet corn and grains. little boozier in the finish than expected.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Not too bad. Definitley malt forward in both aroma and flavor. Not quite spicey enough for the style though.

12oz bottle

A- Blue bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head.

S- The aroma is malty with some caramel and very mild hops in the aroma.

T- The taste like the aroma is malty up front with some sweetness coming in from the malt. There is some caramel flavors and just a touch if hops in the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest beer. Worth a try.

Yet another very nice American take on the Oktoberfest brew... I've been seeing a lot of these lately. This has the additional laurel of being the best beer I've yet had from Florida Beer Company. The brew pours a lustrous copper hue and is topped with a thin cap of off-white froth. The nose is faintly earthy-spicy and shows a good bit of nutty, toasty malt. Right about what I'd hope for in the style. The flavor carries on with the goodness; it is lightly malty, again in a toasty-nutty sense, and has just a bit of zesty and earthy bitterness to balance the brew out. Very refreshing, and easily poundable, as the style should be. A very nice basic drinking beer; it is not something to endlessly wax poetic over, and it is greater than the sum of its parts.

From a cool-looking blue bottle pours a nice, rich, golden amber colored liquid. Smallish head drops fast and with a lot of fizzy noise. Won't be any lace here, either.
Smell is overly hoppy for the style. Malt present but weak. A medicinal note shoves it way up the nostrils.
Taste is more well balanced. Malt and hops evenly vie for the tastebuds. A slight caramel note, maybe some light brown sugar.
Medium-bodied with an effervescense that is sharp upfront but mellows quickly. A coating on the palate and tongue leads to a thickening feeling in the throat. Not particularly good that. Overall, I am not impressed by the company that brought Gaspar's Porter to my lips.

Poured from a 12oz bottle (that's quite blue) into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

This one's a red-orange with a tiny head that quickly recedes. Aroma is solidly lagery, with toasted malts and a decent amount of hoppiness. The taste is a good Marzen, this one remembers it's lager roots with a bit of a noble hop taste behind the toasted malts. There's also some graininess that isn't unpleasant. The mouthfeel is light and briskly carbonated, and the drinkability is good. A solid offering from Florida Beer Company, I'm excited to see what kind of new stuff they have in the pipeline.

Oktoberfest is a time for celebration complete with German oompah bands, steins, and attractive women toting whole handfuls of overflowing Seidels to the thirsty masses. Florida Beer Company out of Melbourne has their rendition dubbed “Conchtoberfest”. Packaged in a sea glass blue bottle, this beer brings the essence of the beach to your hand.

Appearance: It is being served chilled in a US tumbler. It pours a crystal clear ocher color with a one finger, off-white head. The hue is reminiscent of a dewy Florida sunrise off the Gulf coast.

Smell: There are nice toasty malts with a mix of salted caramel and some earthy hops in the background. The nose is sweet and potent in line with the true Marzen style.

Taste: It is malt forward but the caramel blends with a touch of biscuit flavor. The finish sticks long and sonorous with an alcohol twang. It remains easy drinking to the end.

Conchtoberfest proves to be a worthy Marzen and just in time for the fall months.
