Widmer Okto Festival Ale

CIMG4353

Here’s an American interpretation of the German classic. This beer features Pale, Carapils, Caramel Munich II, and Crystal 77L malts with Alchemy and Willamette hops.

Stats:
Marzen. 5.3% ABV. 28 IBUs. Oregon. Available August-October.

Coppery in color. Has an alright head.

Not too much happening on the nose. I’m just getting a hint of malt and sweetness.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. It’s a medium body with a medium carbonation.

Getting some malty sweetness. A bit of vanilla and brown sugar. Little bit of a hop backbone.

This is a disappointing beer. I like the flavor of it, it’s just way too light. If they could amplify the flavor here, this would be a huge winner. 82 points.
