In this fall beer blog, we are going to sample another beer from Tri-City Brewery. It is their Oktoberfest. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a clear amber color with a white head that disappears over time. The aroma has a sweet malty to caramel notes. The taste has a sweet caramel but not as much most American Oktoberfest. The aftertaste has a dry malty finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.tricitybrewing.com):

// ]]>Our Oktoberfest is light orange in color with a moderate toasted malt aroma. Is has a distinctive malt flavor that isn’t’ too sweet with a moderate and balanced noble hop flavor. This classic malty style is often described as elegant and complex but never cloying. This beer is reminiscent of Fall in glass.

Closing, I am a pretty big fan of this craft brewery. I am happy to see this craft brewery’s beer around little bit more. I am see their beers on more shelves. I have never had their Oktoberfest so I was pretty happy to see it. There is a nice balance in this beer. They kept it as close to the traditional beer style. It is not as sweet caramel notes from the Goose Island’s version. I love this one. It is a great Oktoberfest. I have to say this is one of my favorite Oktoberfest. I will make it a point to pick up a six-pack each season. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
