Beer: Oktoberfest Lager Beer
Brewery: Lakefront Brewery, Inc.
Serving Style: Bottle
Drinking Establishment: Chez Wood
Primary Consumer: Kerensa
Sight: Bright blood orange body with a reddish, frothy head.
Smell: Oddly enough, it smells like a sweet lemon vinaigrette.
Flavor: The sweet lemon aroma translates into a lemony, Pine-sol-esque flavor. The malts make a final act appearance in the flavor of pastries. So, it kind of tastes like eating a sweet pastry that fell on a freshly cleaned floor.
Feel: It’s well carbonated, but the body is a little too thin for the style.
Concluding Remark: Lakefront Brewery, hailing from the fine city of Milwaukee, puts out a bizarre American-style Oktoberfest. The beer is more aggressive in flavor than traditional Oktoberfestbiers, as is to be expected of an American brewery. However, I have a hard time getting over the soapy, herbal note. It’s hard not to think of the head as a bucket of suds. Luckily I found this in a mixed six-pack, otherwise it would be taking up space in my refrigerator long after the Oktoberfest tents had been packed up for the year.
