Review: Karl Strauss Oktoberfest Seasonal Beer

Share

San Diego’s Karl Strauss Brewing Company offers this brew for the traditional October celebration of all things beer.

But Karl Strauss’s Oktoberfest isa bit of an oddity. The nose screams cocoa powder, with a malty, lightly hoppy character. That cocoa continues on the palate, but the body isn’t a good match. Watery and thin, it doesn’t have the body that a meaty, autumn brew commands. The finish is even stranger, veering into sour notes after flirting with bitterness. Just out of balance over all, and not very refreshing, ultimately.

C+ / $7.50 per six-pack / karlstrauss.com
