Review: Karl Strauss Oktoberfest

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

But Karl Strauss’s Oktoberfest is a 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.

5% abv.
