Oktoberfish by Flying Fish Brewing Company

My last beer in my Oktoberfest fest…will this top the Brooklyn Oktoberfest?  Lets open it, pour it, and taste it…shall we?

Beer #308 is Oktoberfish by Flying Fish Brewing Company.  Brewed in Cherry Hill, New Jersey this Marzen/Oktoberfest has an ABV of 5.5%.

Was I surprised when it poured an amber color with a white head?  No.  Was I surprised this had a light nose with aromas of caramel and toast?  Nope.  I wasn’t shocked by the taste either…slightly caramel malts with a toasted bread like flavor.  It had a bit of a nuttiness near the end also.  One thing that set this apart from the other Oktoberfests I have had was that the carbonation was heavier in this medium bodied brew.

This wasn’t bad but didn’t set itself apart in any way and I wasn’t a big fan of the heavier carbonation here.  My Oktoberfest fest is now officially done and Brooklyn Oktoberfest was my favorite.
