Day #270 – Franconia Oktoberfest

September 28, 2011

Quick one today.

Franconia Oktoberfest

This one’s out of Franconia; a local brewery based in McKinney. I’ve had this beer several times before and in my opinion is one of the best things they do! Unsure of the ABV; estimated around 5.5%.


This beer pours a clear reddish orange color with nice rouge highlights. Tan type head.

Aroma is fairly sweet smelling; sweeter than I remember. Sweet caramel malts, grains and light sugar fill the nose.

Flavor matches the sweetness well. Lots of caramel malts, leafy flavors and sugary sweetness. Not too sweet but sweeter than your typical Oktoberfest. I think it works for them though.
