Oktoberfest by Sprecher Brewing Company

Did you get it?  Well if you didn’t…you better.  Steel Panther just released their 2nd CD/MP3 album today, Balls Out.  Absolutely brilliant…this is what heavy guitar rock or metal is all about.  And talk about the lyrical themes here…mind blowing.  I raise a toast to Michael Starr, Satchel, Lexxi Foxxx, and Stix Zadinia…this beer is for you!!!  Panther rocks!!!

Beer #338 is Oktoberfest by Sprecher Brewing Company from Glendale, Wisconsin.  This is the last of my Beer Of The Month selections…at least for this month.  This is a Marzen or an Oktoberfest with an ABV of 6%.

It poured the color of amber with a minimal off-white head.  The nose was really light.  It consisted mainly of caramel and bread.  The taste followed suit with it being quite malty with a slightly sweet caramel flavor and a nice crust from the bread kind of taste.  There was a bit of a nutty, earthy thing going here also.  It had a mdeium body, was light on the carbonation and was quite smooth.  It would be quite easy to drink quite a few of these.

This was a pretty solid brew for its style…definitely above average.  I was never a big fan of this style, Marzen/Oktoberfests, but I think it they have really grown on me.  Nice tasting, light in alcohol content, very drinkable…what is there not to like?

Well thanks to the snow yesterday…we have had no cable service (which means no TV, internet ,or phone) since last night. Comcast Triple Play, or whatever they call it, for the win…or FTW if you prefer.

I will be composing this on my HTC Trophy smartphone with the WordPress app. I don’t know how to attach a photo, so unless I get my cable service back, there will be none.

Beer #336 is Hefe Weiss by Sprecher Brewing Company from Glendale, Wisconsin. Their version of a Hefeweizen has an ABV of 4.2%.

Out comes my Mos Eisley Cantina glass for the pour. Come on….you know you love Star Wars and that song they played in the Cantina. I do too…it used to be my favorite movie before The Lord Of The Rings movies. This beer poured a very cloudy, almost murky, yellow or gold. The head was quite nice, white and creamy and silky smooth. Let’s dip our noses in…shall we? Smells like bread and is quite spiced with the scent of cloves. The spiciness of the cloves is really evident in the flavor. It also had a bit of a lemony zing to it. Throw in a nice bread flavor all throughout, and you have pretty tasty, with low alcohol, brew. The body was fairly light but not watery. The carbonation was on the low side. It was quite smooth and creamy. Very sessionable if that is your thing.

I liked this beer…it may have not been my favorite Hefeweizen, but it was really pleasant to drink and the best of the latest Beer Of The Month Clubs offering.
