Stoudt’s Oktoberfest

Well, here it is. This is the final Oktoberfest review for a while, or at least till I find a few more to spend hard earned money on. It’s been quite some time since I’ve had a Stoudt’s beer. Honestly, I can’t remember when I last enjoyed one of their products, and having never had this particular brew, it seemed appropriate to jump on it when I saw it on the shelf.

Beer Label: Stoudt's Oktoberfest


The Stoudt’s version of this beer poured much lighter than the previous samples. It’s lighter color was accompanied by at large, full head of foam.


The typical Oktoberfest malt is there, but this one also has a higher hop profile that makes it smell quite inviting. A small amount of caramel sweetness is also present.


This is a really well balanced beer. There’s a good bit of malt and hops working together to produce a nice brew. The caramel and subtle sweetness only prove to complete the hops/malt interaction — and leaves an inviting sweetness on the lips.


This one could prove to be a nice Autumn daily drinker for me. It’s got a tad bit more complexity than most Oktoberfest brews.

Rating: 4/5
