Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Hullabaloo2 on 10-01-2009

When Bavarian Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese tied the knot in 1810, the couple invited about a hundred thousand of their closest friends to celebrate on Munich's front lawn and the world's largest annual festival was born. Lucky Bucket salutes this fine tradition with an authentic Oktoberfest lager for the fall season. Using only the finest German malt and hops, we've created a beer with a wonderful malty flavor, full body, and crisp finish that would make Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese proud. Prost!

A-Deep burnt orange color..minimal head..

S-Not much....smells sour and infected...

T-Odd...tart almost... not what I expected....some toasted caramel...not my idea of an ofest flavor...definitely tart on the finish

M-Medium bodied...a bit sourish on the finish..

O-Not impressed....seems slightly infected...not drain pour but by far the worst ofest I have had this year. Maybe the non infected batches are better but unfortunately this one is not very good and I am very disappointed to have purchased a six-pack that is off like this...very rarely does this happen with all the micros I have had....can't find any bottle dating...I'm assuming it is this years version and not one that has been sitting in a warehouse for a year but who knows...then again it doesn't taste "old or stale" ...more infected...slightly but enough to wreck it..

A: Dark, reddish amber hue with a huge bubbly, foamy head; lacing is not there and this is a pretty murky looking lager

S: Grainy and somewhat herbaly and sour; musty and metallic; something smells a bit strange here; and there is way too much malt for an Oktoberfest--at least it smells that way

T: Yep, it's really malty and grainy; something medicinal on the finish; some burnt malts, toffee as well in the finish that make it somewhat pleasant

F: Pretty thin--even for a lager

O: A pretty average Oktoberfest; not bad and refreshing but subdued, simple, and too malty

The last guy probably got a bad bottle. So take it for what it worth. This was a decent, not solid, but decent brew. . All I can say is this beer is not outstanding, but I wouldn't turn down drinking 2 or 3 of them wth a buddy if he had a six pack. Not bad but not good. Definitely one to try if you got it.

Aroma - Toasty malt, but not caramel. Very clean aroma.

Appearance - Nice orange color. Completely clear. Off white head that dissipated to only a ring around the edge of the glass.

Taste - Brief malt sweetness. Somewhat toasty, but again, no caramel. Little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Balanced toward malt but still dry. Very clean.

Mouth Feel - Medium body. Creamy. Clean and dry finish. Good carbonation.

Overall Impression - Good beer with a somewhat complex malt character. Very clean beer. A solid Oktoberfest. Definitely drinkable, but nothing to rave about.

The fairly light aroma includes toasted malt, rye bread, raisin; becomes a little nutty and chocolatey after a couple minutes. The head, which is reluctant to form, is off-white; the body is very clear and deep orange-brown in color. The flavor includes lightly toasted malt, chocolate, nuts, considerable spicy and mildly bitter hops, and plenty of tasty malt in the finish. The feel is somewhat light and fairly crisp but with weak carbonation.

A bit thin in body and overall rather straightforward, seems like an ordinary lager with more toasted malt. Very drinkable and not bad at all but overall so-so.

This is a pretty good American version of the style; not the best beer in the world, but quite drinkable.
