Snoqualmie Harvest Moon

CIMG4343

This is a Fall seasonal from one of my favorite Washington breweries. This beer features Munich malt and German Spalt hops. Let’s see how this domestic example compares.

Stats:
Marzen. 5.3% ABV. 24 IBUs. Washington. Available September-October.

They describe this beer as fire-orange, which is actually perfect. Not too much head here.

The nose is pretty closed. I’m just getting a little bit of malt and sweetness.

Mouthfeel isn’t bad. It’s medium bodied with quite a bit of carbonation.

The palate is better than the nose, but it’s not overwhelmingly flavorful. I get some sweet malts that bring an apple and vanilla component. Just a hair of bready-ness. It does have a nice malty length.

Not a bad beer, but doesn’t excite me too much either. Worth a buy in my opinion. 86 points
