Brew Review – Harpoon Octoberfest (with a C)

harpoon octoberfest

Reposted from the now defunct Boards & Brews

Brewery: Harpoon Brewery
Brew: Octoberfest
Style: Märzan/Oktoberfest
ABV: 5.5%
Price: $8.98
Their Take: Harpoon Octoberfest features a malty, full-bodied taste and deep garnet-red color. We brew this Märzen-style beer with festivals in mind. Celebrate with us. Prosit!

My Thoughts
Every major brewery has their version of an Oktoberfest, and here we have Harpoon’s. Honestly, I wasn’t too big of a fan. It had the typical heavier taste of an Oktoberfest, but something was off to me. The beer seemed to have an almost sour finish too it, and it was very distracting to the rest of the taste. The after taste really resonated in the back of my throat and nose, but that wasn’t a good thing. For starting so strong, it really fell off at the end.

John 8:02 - and a ray of light broke through the grey winter sky and a voice boomed "give me your malts, your hops, your remarkably specific water profiles. For I, Conan, shall ferment them into a wondorous adult beverage." Thus shall it be. Really glad @tonewoodbrewing still had Powder Daze available today. That can design is awesome. Game day beer on tap. Let's go Pats! DDH Fuego, totally worth the wait. @tonewoodbrewing is making quite a name for themselves.
