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.

Ha on tap at the Corner Bar in Back Bay. Typical seasonal beer - Oktoberfest is everywhere it seems. Pours a great copper color with a decent head. Very malty and breast type of smell and the taste carrys over. Not hoppy at all. Pretty carbonated beer and tasted artificial to me- I wasn't overwhelmed with this one. I like this brewery a lot, but this one was just ok for me.

Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, AdamJackson!

Copper in color with a nice head of near-white foam. Appropriately pretty Oktoberfest.

Earthy, bready, and mildly hoppy beer. A touch of floral and sweet notes as well.

Biscuit and a bit of sweetness combine with low to moderate bitterness, and just a touch of floral, grassy hops. Quite nice. Very drinkable.

Medium to near full in body, at least for the style. Moderate carbonation.

Very drinkable, tasty to-style beer.

Jack's Abby Brewing - Copper Legend, poured into a stein.

Look - Pours a clear filtered bubbly copper amber with a decent sized fizzy head that dissipates quickly and leaves sparse lacing.

Smell - Sour lager yeast, smooth sweet malt, some slight hints of roasted malt, and a touch of bitter Noble hops.

Taste - Creamy and malty with a nice hop bittering pine finish.

Mouthfeel - Rests hop bitter but wet/creamy. Low carbonation. Light to medium body. Slightly warm boozy but it's pleasing. Good drinkability.

Overall - I am not a huge fan of this style in general, but I appreciated what they did here, particularly with the hoppy finish. I am willing to admit that I am a huge fan of this brewery and will try anything they put out at least once. Would recommend this for fans of hops that want a seasonal treat, would also recommend for those into the style, though they might be put off by the interpretation of it.

On tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours an unsurprising copper color, with a half inch head and minimal lacing.

Smells very earthy, with some sweet malty tones as well.

The taste upfront is bitter floral hops, with some grass as well. The back end is very malty and satisfying, with caramel, toast, and a good amount of sweetness.

Crisp mouthfeel, could be a little drier.

Not surprised that Jack's Abby nailed this style. One of the best American made versions.
