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.
