This seasonal release is from the Central Waters Brewing Company of Amherst, Wisconsin. The Oktoberfest season is basically in the rear view mirror, but I found this tucked away on the shelf of my local store. I had missed it before, so I picked it up.
The beer pours a deep, yet clear, copper and amber in color. There is a half-inch of white to off-white foamy head, a bit fizzy. The aroma is tangy, lightly nutty and fruity, a bit of caramel. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all of the same notes. The fruity, nutty and caramel notes of the malt are in good harmony. There is a light bitterness on the finish. The beer drinks easy with a refreshing carbonation. I keep saying this, but this certainly must be my last Oktoberfest beer of the year (unless I find another one I haven't tried).
I thought I hadn't tried this before, I do a pretty good job remembering which beers I have tried considering how many I have tried. But in loading the pic, it turns I have had this before in 2011.
Trying again in 2017: The beer pours a lightly hazed amber
and copper. There is a half-inch of light tan head. The aroma is
light, just a touch of caramel, fruit and nut. The taste follows the
aromas, light, like a fruit and nut caramel, but not too sweet. The
finish is mostly dry, lightly bitter. The beer drinks very easy. This
is a nice, mild but tasty, take on the Octoberfest style.
