Fall is almost here and that means great beer and of course Oktoberfest, the famous beer festival in Germany that is also celebrated all over the United States. We’ll soon be featuring some amazing fall and Oktoberfest beers and here are 4 of them that we are particularly excited to drink.
Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale
Shipyard Brewing’s Pumpkinhead Ale has is a great autumn beer and makes the season that much sweeter. This is a wheat ale that is crisp and refreshing with a delightful aroma. The aroma is rich with pumpkin with notes of nutmeg, clove, brown sugar and cinnamon. On the palate much what is in the aroma comes out in the flavor. It is very sweet with no bitterness. It has a nice mouth feel and a medium body with 4.5% ABV and the alcohol is not present on the palate. A fantastic pumpkin beer that you owe yourself to drink through out the fall season during get together and parties.
Berkshire Brewing Oktoberfest Lager
When fall arrives that means Oktoberfest is around the corner. This Marzen style lager is aged for months prior to its release. Following tradition, it is brewed using German hops and yeasts. This lager has a beautiful orange-amber hue that evokes the Autumn season. Its complex malt structure produces a smooth, drinkable lager. It finishes with a subtle hop flavor and hints of spice. At 6.8% ABV it is a perfect for the season.
Jack Abby’s Copper Legend Octoberfest
Another Oktoberfest beer, Jack Abby’s Copper Legend Octoberfest is why we wait all year for this season. This Octoberfest brew is smooth, malty and above all else super drinkable. It has a nice red amber color. It is produced using locally grown wheat from Massachusetts, noble hops and Munich malt creating an unparalleled aroma and taste. It has a pleasant aroma rich in apple, caramel, whole grain bread. The flavor is also fruity but with a light caramel sweetness throughout and a touch of floral hops. This is one great beer with a 5.9% ABV.
Cisco Brewers Pumple Drumkin
When there’s Autumn there’s pumpkins, Halloween and of course beer. Cisco Brewers is always prepared for the season with this wonderful pumpkin beer. This pumpkin beer has a nice golden brownish/orange color thin foam when poured. It has a very spicy aroma with notes of cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, ginger and nutmeg. The taste does not stray too far from the aroma with its very spicy and pumpkin flavor. It is a medium bodied beer with nice carbonation at a nice 6.0% ABV. This is an awesome beer for the season. A great beer to pair with pumpkin pie or to drink when spending an afternoon carving a Halloween pumpkin.
