Harpoon Octoberfest Beer

12oz single from Mac’s Downtown, Atlanta, GA, USA. Best Before 11/22/07, dot-matrixed on the neck.
Not quite sure why this is listed as an American Amber/Red in the BA db since it is called Octoberfest, drinks like a malty Oktoberfest brew and it says on the label that it is Marzen style. On well..
Atractive light orange body that is lively with plenty of carbonation. Large, frothy head with plenty of lace and decent retention.
Ok, what we get here is a nice, malty bread based beer with a suprising hop presence (maybe that is where the Amber moniker comes from). Finishes clean and strong.
An unremarkable brew, but still a strong one. I enjoyed it. It’s a *little* different to a standard Oktoberfest/Marzen but I still liked it.
