Okay, first thing, it’s Oktoberfest, but I’m willing to overlook that. It’s that time again; late September, the time that the real Oktoberfest is happening in Munich, all over Germany and even here in the good ol’ USA. And, it’s from a very reputable company and Spencer says this is one of his favorite styles from one of his favorite breweries. There are a few Bell’s that I don’t really care for and I’m not an Oberon fan. On the other hand, just about anything with a Bell’s label that resembles a darker or maltier beer, I think they’re hard to beat. I’m usually hit or miss about Oktoberfest brews, too. But, I haven’t really examined them as deeply as I should have. So, I’m looking forward to this one. It’s only 5.5% so it’s drinkable without being to awfully heavy, I’m sure.
BeerAdvocate rates it at 81 (Good) with no Bros. Score. Untappd rates it 3.62 caps out of 5. RateBeer has it at 48 overall, 85 in style. Have you had it yet? What did you think? If you’ve not or just have a hankering for more, then head down to 915 Burke Street in WSNC and pick up your sixer. Tell them that it’s the beer of the week and you get 5% off your order! Tune in to The Less Desirables and see what Caitlin, Danielle, Chef Jeff and I think about it.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“With herbal hop aromas, this balanced amber lager focuses on lightly toasted malt that lends body without too much sweetness. Perfect for a week-long wedding celebration in Germany or the start of the Michigan autumn.” – Bell’s Description
