Bell’s Oktoberfest Beer
Bell’s Oktoberfest Beer is a Märzen/Oktoberfest, 5.5% ABV, bottled on 08/18/16, opened on 10/01/16.
This pours with a somewhat hazy amber color that has some orange and red highlights, a minimal off white head that fades after a minute or two. Rich and malty on the nose with notes of caramel and doughy biscuits. A lot of semi-sweet malt and flavorful mixed nuts on the taste, with a ton of sweet caramel malts as well. There is a nice little bit of hop bite just on the finish that establishes just a little bit of balance. A bit more of a creamy mouthfeel than most Oktoberfest style beers has this drinking a bit more like and Ale as opposed to a Lager to me.
I could see myself buying a six pack of this. An excellent representation of what a good Fall beer should be.
