In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Atwater Brewery. It is their Bloktoberfest, which is their Oktoberfest. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Detroit base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this fall beer.
It has a clear amber color without a constant head. The smell has a sweet malty notes. The taste has a sweet burn malty notes with a slight caramel that is burned. The aftertaste has a dry burned notes. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.atwaterbeer.com):
ABV 6.4% IBU 30
Color: Rich Amber
Oktoberfest is a German tradition that celebrates the harvest. Now, Atwater carries on that tradition with our own special lager.

Ending, I know many of you out there from my readers here and friends of mine. They all know that I am not a fan of this craft brewery. I just feel that they could be make better beers. They have no pressure right now to check anything. Michigan craft beer market is still growing along with their drinkers. Once it is hits the peak. I believe they will need to change some things up at that time. I just wished they made better beer, however, this beer is pretty good. It is better than most of their beers. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
