The Brü Revü – Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest
This is the second Rahr & Sons beer I have tried and now I am really impressed. The Gravel Road and now their Oktoberfest have been solid and consistent beers that are making me pay more attention to Rahr & Sons. Their Oktoberfest was part of our Bums Meeting and I remember it being a standout in that group, and it was even better when I returned to it. The Oktoberfest pours a dark amber with a nice tan head and all the trademark sweet malt aromas of the style. The taste is a good sweet maltiness with a slight hop and even a bit of Chocolate. For a darker beer it was light on the palate and very clean and drinkable. The Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest was an outstanding Texas Oktoberfest that I will eagerly await every fall.
