Bay State Becktoberfest

Tonight’s beer is one that my parents brought home from one of their trips to Massachusetts. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 5.6%

Style: Marzen/Oktoberfest

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “In 2012, Chip and Shawn, two guys with a love for classic German Mai Bock and Double IPA’s, partnered their 45 years of combined Beer and brewing knowledge to make a better craft beer with Bay State Brewing Co. We’ve always believed that great beer should be approachable, interesting, inviting and refreshing. At Bay State Brewing Co, our mission is simply to make great beer. We produce small batch, distinctive and drinkable beer, hand crafted Lagers and Ales using only the best malts, hops, water and yeast available. We are created in Leicester MA and produced in Western Massachusetts. Whether you’re looking for a deliciously crushible double IPA such as Becky, or a crisp and refreshing New England IPA such as Sinshine, Bay State Brewing Company has you covered.”

Random: Val and I are going to Germany later this year and I’m excited to get a beer in Germany.

The beer poured with a half a finger of off-white head that dissipated quickly. It left little lacing on the glass. The body was a clear caramel color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of brown bread and some toffee as well. The taste was much of the same. There was some brown bread, toasted malt and caramel. The body was medium thickness with a decent amount of carbonation. It had a quick finish with bread. I liked this beer and it went down easily. I would give this a shot again.
