Cable Car Small Batch Amber Ale

Cable Car Small Batch Amber Ale

Marzen/Oktoberfest [Type 57] 5.7% ABV

Brewed in the Marzen style, meaning German malts and little in the way of hops. Big head that dissipates quickly. A sweet and light amber. The color is light too, not as dark as the name might suggest, but that matches the flavor.

Rating

Nothing to write home about, but the lighter flavor was pretty much what I wanted with this beer. Not super thick or flavorful Marzen, but good enough.

Leinenkugel Oktoberfest Beer Review

Leinenkugel Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest [Type 57] 5.1% ABV

I like Leinenkugel beers in general. I am up for trying just about anything they brew. This beer was underwhelming. I have had a lot of Märzen recently, and this one just was not as good. It was a solid example of the style. If I were a diehard Leine fan, I would probably rate it higher.

Rating

Nothing special here. Nothing bad either! I really enjoy the Oktoberfest style, so I have high expectations.
