Revolution Oktoberfest

I’m now trying to tackle a giant backlog of posts on a new computer. The keyboard on the new Mac is definitely a different feel to me, so hopefully I get used to it really quickly. It does load webpages so much quicker though, which is absolutely amazing. My first Revolution beer was one I had out in Ohio. I was impressed by their stuff, so I’ve now started seeking them out.

ABV: 5.7%

Style: Marzen/Oktoberfest

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Classic German-style Oktoberfest Lager that goes down smooth with a pleasant, toasty, malt flavor. The addition of traditional German Magnum and Hersbruker hops provide a crisp balanced bitterness and spicy/earthy aroma to round out this robust beer.”

Random: This beer comes in at 25 IBUs.

This beer poured with a huge, three finger, light tan head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a bright mahogany color with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with a lot of brown bread. It had some apple cider and grass as well, along with light molasses. The taste was a bit more herbal than the nose. It started with some grass and a touch of basil and quickly went into brown bread and molasses. The body was on the thicker side with lots of carbonation. The finish was sticky and lengthy and herbal. A can was $1.83, which came to $.15 per ounce. This beer had some nice flavor and sweetness, but it wasn’t a best in style.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
