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.

From 09/17/14 notes at Post 390 in Boston, MA. Had two glasses, 16 oz. pours into pint glasses.

Pours a copper-dark amber color with one to two inches of light tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Lots of bready malts, some fruity mats, and light burnt malts. Some brown sugar, dough, wheat, and grains. Medium body and low carbonation, easy to drink.

Overall not my favorite marzen nor my favorite JA beer. Try if you lie the style but don't od too much to seek it out.

Reminiscent of Firestone Walker's Oaktoberfest. It has the bones of a marzen, but aspires to a better form resulting from nuance. Very bright gold, not sure I'd qualify it as copper. Nice head though. Importantly, the basics have been attended to. Malted Munich dominates a sweet aroma; no nuttiness, no pine, just malt. Crisp and soft body. Emphasis on the aged and thrashed flavor of wheat. Smells much much sweeter than actual taste, which is given balance by some Noble hops, herbal, and medicinal flavors.

A: Pours bronze with great clarity. Anais has the start be quickly dissipates. Not much lacing but a thin film of bubbles persists.

S: biscuity and malty. Toasted grain and mild sweetness.

T: Wow! This is what an Oktoberfest Marzen should taste like! Biscuity, a little chewy, but fresh and clean, with animal cracker and cracker flavors throughout. Mild hops in the back add some dimension to all of the grainy and bready flavors.

O: I love this brew! An instant classic. Maybe the best Oktoberfest offering I've yet had! One to try if you're a fan of the style or if you're a skeptic of the style.

Pours perfect amber. Clear, serene and has a fat , creamy off white head that falls slowly enough. Nose is white bread with a touch of wheat sweetness. No hops no fruity esters. As the beer warms a light sweet hay or grassiness comes forward a bit. Taste is lovely. Lighter side of medium mouthfeel with a delicate lager bite form bubbles. Delicate because the bubbles seem so tiny. Not at all big or rough. Light toasty white bread with a nice crust on it. A dry crisp wheat and a lovely bit of what I am going to call floral. Grapeskins actually. This beer finishes dry and with the malt edging out any hop character at the very end. I love this. Not bitter at all.

This beer is bright, vivid and reminds me of how the fall leaves give off their last bit of light as color before they turn brown and fall. Delicate swift on the palate and has a measure of sunshine in the drink imparted by the wheat.
