Day #262 – Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest

September 20, 2011

At the Ginger Man tonight for a super glass night!!

Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest


My Oktoberfesting continues with this one from Rahr & Sons. This is their version of the Oktoberfest which rings in this year at 5.5%. They made an Imperial version of this last year which topped 8%, but it appears they have scaled things back again for this year.

I certainly like my brand new Rahr mug. I have an Oktoberfest mug from them already but it was a different style and still from the old label.

This beer pours a dark reddish brown color with a nice creamy beige head. The head dissipates after just a bit.

The nose here was pretty nice, and about what I expected for an Oktoberfest. It is heavily malted with some chocolate notes and a bit of roastyness. It almost has a bit of a nutty quality to it as well.

The flavors seem to match the aroma. Very malty indeed with a slight bitterness near the finish. Sweeter notes of chocolate and gentle roast meet in the middle. I enjoyed this no doubt. I’ll try and find a pic of my older glass too.
