Brew Review – Harpoon Octoberfest (with a C)

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.
