BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jack's Abby Brewing
Massachusetts, United States
jacksabbybrewing.com

Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Fall

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.

22 IBU

Had on tap recently @ Magouns in Somerville.

Pours a nice copper as the name suggests. Little head which goes away quickly.

Sweet, malty, slightly dirty nose. A bit of the same in the sip, a bit cloying, overly sweet. A bit of an unpleasant after -taste too which made my face pucker.

Above characteristics became highlighted & exacerbated as I drank the glass, it was a bit of a struggle to finish. Caramel notes were running rampant.

My least favorite offering from this new brewery so far, unfortunately. As a long time fan of Marzens & ofests, I cant help but feel this beer was rushed. Will try another time.

A: [3.00] Nice orange to amber color in the glass. Forms a tiny white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. The bottle lists IBU (22) and ABV (5.7%). I can't find any dates.

S: [2.50] Strong pie spices. Really pungent. Like hard cider almost. To the point that it almost smells synthetic or like chemicals.

T: [2.50] The taste does not follow the nose. It is much mellower. There is still some apple pie spices - but none of the harshness. However, it has a weird after taste as I continue to drink it.

M: [3.00] The mouthfeel is decent. Nice carbonation and body.

O: [2.50] This would be a nice beer to have at a German festival. It would make me feel like I fit in. Other than that I am not sure when I would seek this out. The flavors are decent but it is not really my thing. It is too bad because I have had mostly solid hits from Jack's Abby.

Got as an extra from someone, but can't remember who so thanks trading partner!

Pours orange with a small white foamy head. No lacing.

Smells of caramel with some earthy dirty aroma. A bit off.

Sweet caramel malts with a bit of apple and unfortunately a metallic dirty finish. Upfront flavors are ok, but the finish leaves a bit to be desired.

Thin bodied with good carbonation. I'd like more mouthfeel here.

Despite the words above I did enjoy drinking this beer. There were just little things in almost every aspect that made it average instead of good.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear amber color with a thick layer of off white head. The head fades quickly to a ring around the pour.

Smell: The overall smell is very mild. I'm getting a slightly sweet caramel malt note, but that's about it. Not particularly interesting.

Taste: Almost as mild as the smell. There is a fairly nice malt note, just a touch sweet and rather bready. The finish has a slight bitterness to it.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a finish that is slightly dry.

Overall: This is a quite unremarkable beer. Nothing particularly interesting going on here. I don't need anymore.

Had this beer on tap at the brewery in Framingham. Served in a 4oz tasting glass. Served cool.

A-off white head, thick, nice gem like copper color.

S-standard marzen yeast smell, nice hard candy smell

T-fruit stone, hard candy

M-medium

D-Okay style wise. A bit run of the mill. Not bad, but just not anything to scream about.
