OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Dark amber body with a small, fluffy beige head with high retention.

Smell: Fruity notes, predominantly peach and apple. There’s a bit of a cedar and woodsy aroma from the hops.

Taste: There are bright hops flavors and an equal amount of full, toasted  and bready malts. It’s balanced, but all of the ingredients shine through and coexist harmoniously.

Feel: Excellent mouthfeel; medium body with high carbonation.

Concluding Remark: Pyramid Brewing, hailing from the Great Pacific Northwest, puts out a pretty awesome American Oktoberfest. While much hoppier than the authentic German brew, this is balanced, wildly flavorful, and showcases the Nugget hops (common in the region)–a unique inclusion in an Oktoberfest. I’m missing a little of the Munich malts, but all in all, it’s a solid beer. And at 6.7%, Pyramid’s Oktoberfest is the strongest at the fest. It could totally beat you in a competition to stay sober after consuming  more than two.
