During Football season, we are going to take a look at another brew from Revolution Brewery. This is their fall seasonal which is called Oktoberfest. If you read my earlier blog on their Anti-Hero, you know a little something about this brewery. If not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
This fall beer has a nice copper color without a head on it. It has a sweet caramel malty smell to the beer. The taste has some caramel notes along with some malty notes. The aftertaste makes this beer extremely drinkable for a Fall Beer and Oktoberfest. The aftertaste is a dry malty.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.revbrew.com):
A classic German-style Oktoberfest beer that goes down smooth with a pleasant, toasty malt flavor. Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops give the beer a crisp, balanced bitterness and a spicy, earthy aroma.
ABV 5.7%IBU 25
Profile: Classic German-style Oktoberfest beer

In closing, I had several Fall and Oktoberfest beers through out the years. I had a ton this year and there are only a few that are really good and then there are some that are really bad. It has been very disappointing this years for fall beers. I use to hang out at their brewpub in Logan Square and I never had this beer. I have to say that I am not really that impressed with it. I loved their Anti-Hero IPA and this was a real let down. I am not a fan of this beer for the price and the liquid inside the bottle, draft, and cans. There are better Oktoberfest at a better value. I feel their beers are overpriced for being from Chicago. Just because, I am not a fan of this beer. It does not mean you will not like this beer and rest of their bews. Please go try them and share your thoughts with me and others. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
