Beer # 156 - Bob's '47 Oktoberfest, Boulevard Brewing Company, Kansas City Missouri
The Boulevard Brewing Company, a fine brewery that has an ever growing distribution. This is my first time trying the Octoberfest.
It pours a cloudy straw color with a thin head.
The aroma is sweet caramel malt with some very mild hop tones.
The malt is noticeable right away, with mildly sweet tones. The hop balances the beer back from sweetness, adding a fresh crispness to the light body. It finishes with mild honey and complex malt that rounds off nicely.
The aftertaste holds the malt tones, the palate resets quickly. It's a great all-around beer that would pair with many fall dishes. A great autumn beer with it's light crisp body and complex underlying malt tones.
