My notes on the infinite world of craft beers.

The ratings are completely arbitrary and made up while drinking the beers.

Ayinger’s Oktober Fest-Märzen. A 3 of 4. Some awesome toffee and caramel notes in the nose, and very drinkable. Clean on the palate and a crisp finish. The nose and floral hop presence up front is quite complex for a märzen, and yet it’s simple enough you could have a liter or more. A great Oktoberfest beer.


We sell this at World Market in Murfreesboro. Makes me wish my fridge and pantry weren’t already full.

Hey thanks!

Everyone, amy-ess has a blog with wine notes and other things. You should check it out.

More notes to come. I just got back from a shotgun weekend to Florida to see Harry Potter world at Universal. Let me recover from that and I’ll type up the rest of these.

Thanks!

beerinbrief:

I haven’t posted in awhile because I was in Virginia to visit my wife’s family and see her little brother get married. The good news for this blog is that we drove, and I filled the car with as much beer as possible. Look for some of these beers on the blog in the coming months. I know I’m looking forward to drinking them! [Oh, and one of those is a bottle of Kentucky bourbon. I’m excited about that too. Bourbon blog, maybe?]


Nice!

Homebrew Number Two

So it seems that I have too much time on my hands despite being too lazy to post up some more beers from my trip. Due to the fact that I’ve still got no word of a start date for my new job, I thought I’d do something productive and make some more beer. As the old adage goes:…

Good luck! I look forward to reading about it.

Shiner’s Oktoberfest
Style: Oktoberfest/Marzen
ABV: 5.8%
Date Reviewed: 10-9-2012
A light brown/cream soda color. Flavors are ok. There are malts and light fruit. The Samuel Adams Octoberfest was much better. I also really enjoyed Shiner’s Ruby Redbird, but this just isn’t really worth visiting.
Rating: 5/10
