Samuel Adams Octoberfest

Samuel Adams – Octoberfest Seasonal Brew (5.3%) Pours a clean copper-brown with a thin white head. Smells of medium sweet malt, tastes heavily of malt followed by a citrus tang. The malt brings a bit of sweetness but is overshadowed by the tang and never gets to shine until you allow it to warm. When it warms the sweetness really comes forward and brings out a caramel, toasty flavor. This is a tasty brew I think I’ll have another.

Blue Moon – Short Straw Farmhouse Ale

Blue Moon – Short Straw Farmhouse Ale (5.8%) Pours a clear medium brown with a medium head with lots of tiny bubbles. Smells of grains, tastes tart and medium malt that gets sweet as you swallow and sweeter in the aftertaste, not sugary sweet but sweet from the grain. It’s got good flavor and good drink-ability, try it if you see it.

16 Mile Brewing Company – Old Court Ale (6.1%) Pours a clean, orange-red with a thin beige head. Smells lightly of medium malt and hops. Tastes at first of citrus then quickly malty sweet followed by a light hop bittering. As it warms, the malty sweetness gets more pronounced and this becomes very drinkable. I only have one bottle and am looking forward to another.

Widmer Brothers Brewing – Hefe

Widmer Brothers Brewing – Hefe (American Hefeweizen 4.9%) Pours a hazy yellow with a very thin white head. Smells of yeast and spice. Taste is initially sweet which turns to a citrus tartness with a hint of spice from the yeast then it smooths out with a hoppy finish. This is a good beer for the beginner who wants to take small steps in trying different beers. no strong flavors one way or another but enough flavor to be different.
