Now with several years of brewing under their belt, the Country Boy Brewing team finally tackle the oktoberfest style of lager for the fall season.

Golden and lightly caramelized to a slight amber hue, the faintly hazy lager hardly releases any froth of measure and filled to the brim straight from the taproom bar. Mild mannered aromas of light toast, nuttiness and damp grain roll onto the nose ahead of a grain-filled and starchy taste of caramel, honey and pecan.

While the malt-centric beer trends from a creamy grain taste and into a dry and tacky middle palate, its remnants shed a taste of peanut skins, raw barley and cola nut in its wake. All the while the mild hops pick up on a lemongrass flavor and a peppery balance to take an edge off of the malt on the late palate.

Medium bodied and trending toasty, the beer seems as much of a Northern German altbier as it does oktoberfest as the beer begins to resemble an amber ale that's made with the pieces and parts of German beer making. A lightly stemmy, minty and spicy woods linger leaves the palate tacky with grain sweetness and resonating with toasted cereal grain shortly afterwards.
