In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into another Oktoberfest from Cheboygan Brewing. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this Oktoberfest Beer.
It has a nice clear light amber to dark copper color with a semi white head. The smell has a candy to sweet caramel notes. The taste has a sweet candy to caramel notes with a dry malty notes for the aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a desecration from their website (www.cheboyganbrewingcompany.com):
Gold Medal award winner at the 2012 Frankenmuth World Expo of Beer!
The beer, created by the brewery’s operation manager and brewmaster Tim Perry, who was inspired by the 1976 Späten Oktoberfest bier from Munich, Germany, is orange in hue with a pronounced malt presence. 6% ABV IBU 28. Available in the Fall. Available in six packs seasonally.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I have been really impressed with all the fall seasonals asides the Erdinger, Griffin Claw, Atwater Brewery, and Weihenstephaner. I have to say those were bad. I believe that is four out of fourteen fall beers. This brewery puts another good one on that list. I am so happy to have a great streak of fall beers this season. I love the candy to caramel notes from the malt. It is pretty sweet but yet has a nice malty dry finish. It will have you coming back and drink more and more of this beer. I highly recommend this beer. You can find this one in the Michigan market. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
