Susquehanna Brewing Co. Oktoberfest
12 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "021815"
$1.83 @ Weis Market, Conshohocken, PA

Appearance: Clear deep copper body. Frothy yellowed antique-white head. Rentention is very good, steadily dropping but maintaining a full surface covering. Lacing could be better.

Aroma: Malty, displaying both golden and dark almost-burnt-sugar caramel. There's some sweet bread crust and a bit of delicate fruitiness. Spicy and softly floral hops. Clean, bright, and inviting.

Taste: The flavor follows the aroma. The malt dominates, but is not overbearing; and it's well-balanced by spicy and grassy/floral/leafy hop flavors. The firm bitterness seems fuller than it probably is due to the spiciness of the hops. It finishes dry, although some malt lingers pleasantly in the aftertaste (as it should).

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a gently bristling, fine-bubbled carbonation.

Overall: It appears they were going for more of a Vienna-style here, and they've certainly nailed it. It's a bit bold in terms of hop flavor, but that makes it stand out from the crowd. Nicely done! Anton would certainly approve.

A - Poured a deep copper color with lots of carbonation and a thick foamy head. Head left some lacing on the glass, but it all but disappeared later on.

S - Picking up some huge toasty bready scents. Smells like warm toast with honey drizzled over it. Very cozy feel from the smell, definitely getting an Oktoberfest vibe from it so far.

T - Enormous caramel and toffee flavors. The things I smelled are almost impossible to pick up on with all of this flavor. Definitely a good tasting beer, but I wish it tasted more like the warm bread and honey it has on the nose.

M - Very odd mouthfeel. It's thin, but very thick at the same time too. Leaves me intrigued.

O - Not bad for their first Oktoberfest style beer. It can only get better with time. A decent beer overall with a good drinkability despite being so damn heavy and sweet. Can't wait to see what they do next year.
