Notes/Commercial Description:
Ancient timelines talk of dark days, plagued by hardships and Kingdom demands. When hope was all but lost, a legend emerged. A plumber. With copper pipes and an uncanny wit, he battled fierce foes and saw to the brewery’s opening. Our Octoberfest is malty, smooth and exceedingly drinkable. It is perfect to celebrate and honor today’s legends. We use locally grown wheat from MA, Munich malt and noble hops.

Bottled "Fall 2012"

A: Copper-orange in color with a fizzy, bubbly, eggshell white head that builds and fades quickly leaving behind little lace and retention.

S: Sweet, toasted malt with spices, some dark fruit, and a bit of hay/grass. Fits the season.

T: Delicious burst of sweet, sugary, toasted malt followed by a surprisingly fresh but faint hop presence. Very smooth and full of flavor with an enjoyable, dry finish.

M: Smooth, clean, crisp, refreshing, all with the right amount of carbonation to complement the flavors and body. Incredibly easy to drink.

O: I don't understand the less than favorable reviews this beer is receiving. Maybe there was a bad batch, maybe these people don't understand the style, or maybe there aren't enough hops? This style is meant to be malt-heavy. I was hesitant to buy this because of the reviews but this again proves that you must take reviews with a grain of salt. I expected Jack's Abby to get this style right, of all styles, because after all, German beers are their focus. And they did get it right. This is a great beer. And for the style (remember, that's how beers are supposed to be reviewed on this site), this gets high marks.
