After a hard pour, a measly quarter finger head appeared with good retention. The head just left a ring around the mug, the head is foamy and billowy. The color of the beer is SRM 9 a pale amber color with some copper hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy with a good amount of carbonation bubble visible.

The first aroma coming off the beer is caramel, lightly toasted malt, and some biscuit. Other aromas are floral, earthy and citrus.

The beer has citrus notes, caramel, lightly toasted malt, and yeasty notes. Additional flavors are floral, earthy and biscuit.

The mouthfeel of the beer is carbonated, medium body, slightly astringent, and a medium finish.

The beer has a good amount of citrus and floral notes coming from the beer. The take on this Octoberfest beer is different but still a good traditional lager. I would have liked to tasted more caramel notes, but that is just me.

Serving type: on tap at the brewery

Pours a perfectly clear deep golden amber. A beautiful beer. Smell is of nuttiness, slightest of smoky flavors, and moist dirt (in a good way). I suppose earthy would be a better description. Taste reflects the smell. Initial nut and early flavors coat the mouth while a generic lager-y crispness finishes. Feel is light, amply carbonated. Overall this is a great beer that is tasty and super easy to drink. Completely underrated.

L: Nice hazy copper color, looks great. Not much head though
S: Yeasty bread smell, gives off malty lager nose
T: Nice toasty malts, comes off more malt/yeast than any hops or pilsner feel. Some fruits in the middle. Light malt finish.
F: Very wet feel, not dry, not much carbonation.

Overall good oktoberfest style beer.

This is a good oktoberfest, if not outstanding.

Pale golden amber, small off-white head soon to ring and wisps.

Aroma is toasty, caramelised barley and bread, dusty-dirty-woody herbs.

Taste is juicy-fruity bread, caramelised, woody herb, balanced light sweetness and spicy-zesty bitterness, some mineral.

wow. this was added in 2010 and still doesn't have 10 reviews.....?
nice color of pumpkin, decent short-lasting head, lager-y and easy to drink with minor adjunct flavors.... not bad. decent flavor without the sweet or adjunct gag. would drink, maybe, one more of these.....

I blind taste-tested a few Oktoberfests before picking my pint. This was the best of the lot and a solid fall beer. It won't blow your mind but it will deliver a full fall flavour to your Oktober palate! Nice work Hanger 24!

Beer poured kind of an ugly brownish-gold with a poor head. Aromas and flavors were a mess: artificial caramel, sour bready notes, and non-descript fruits. Not a good example of style and just an average if not poor beer overall. Go for something else.
