Left Hand Oktoberfest

Left Hand Oktoberfest

Left Hand starts brewing this in the Spring and it takes a full two months to reach lagered perfection. Biscuity, malty goodness dominates upfront while the noble pedigree hops lend a properly spicy, dry finish.

Reviews of Left Hand Oktoberfest

Review by Aaron D. Campbell on December 2, 2010

A- / 4.1

Appearance – Pours a very clear copper color, very little light tan head, that dissipates but leave good lacing.

Smell – Lots of malt, toasted bread, and a little raisiny sweetness.

Taste – Lots of biscuity flavor, hint of alcohol, and just enough hops to balance it out. Finishes slightly sweet.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, creamy and smooth at first, crisp toward the end, good carbonation.

Drinkability – The complexity that comes from the blend of malt is really impressive. It’s definitely something I’ll drink again. One of the best Oktoberfest beers I’ve had.
