Notes / Commercial Description:
An Oktoberfest style lager beer brewed with German Munich malt, one hundred pounds of Butternut squash, and Bavarian Lager yeast. This New World lager pours a beautiful orange-amber autumn hue with a nice malt body and low bitterness.

PROST SQUASHTOBER!

The early days of the American colonization were much like the current craft beer revival: many beers were being made with strange ingredients. We chose to forgo any spice additives associated with contemporary pumpkin beers to remain closer to what early American colonists would have brewed. Taste the fusion of long standing brewing tradition with the forgotten foraged beers of our nation’s founders. Prost Squashtober!

3.83/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 22oz bottle into glass. No bottling date information found.
Clear, deep gold colored body. Not much head, just a skiff of off white islands and a thin ring. Minimal lacing left behind.
Subtle malt aroma, with the suggestion of squash.
Taste is slightly sweet and bready malts. I think the sweetness is indicative of the addition of squash puree. Minimal intrusion by hops.
Thin mouth feel. Good carbonation.
A beer that is totally remindful of the fall squash, but is much more an Oktoberfest than an "Pumpkin" beer. Easily drinkable but rather thin in mouth feel. Too sweet to be a great fest beer, but this fits the season of cooler days and the end of the growing season.

Crystal clear golden body, very small white head with no lacing.

Despite the squash; it tastes like a regular, light Oktoberfest marzen. There is some wheat-ish flavor and light hops pulling up the end. Carbonation is fuzzy.

Pretty good.
