Sly Fox Oktoberfest
(Sly Fox Brewing Company)

The very first canned version of the Oktoberfest-style made available by a craft brewery here in the US. Sly Fox managed to get this one out just before Narragansett's Fest when it hit shelves last month. I've been looking forward to trying this and what better day than today since its officially the first day of Oktoberfest over in Munich. Prosit!

 

From the Sly Fox site:

"This traditional Oktoberfest beer celebrates the arrival of Fall. It is a medium-bodied, smooth and malty brew made with German Vienna malts and German hops."

Here we go...

 

Pour - dark golden in color with some reddish-brown hues. The head is only about a quarter of an inch in thickness and even that fades quickly. 

 

Aroma - malty, biscuity, apple blossoms, grainy and slight hints of lemons and cherries. 


Taste - slightly grainy, earthy, hints of Marmite, caramel, brown sugar, bread dough and orange peel. Mostly this is sweet and malty with a nice finish of caramel and brown bread. 

 

Overall - Not a whole lot of body or complexity here but it does make for a very sessionable beer. I could hoist a few liters of this without too much trouble. 

 

Would I buy more of it? - I might if I was bringing something to a fall barbecue or wanted to share the first craft-brewed Oktoberfest with some friends. 

Note - Sly Fox's Oktoberfest is the brewery's sixth canned release. The first was their Phoenix Pale Ale in 2006.
