Beer Review – Otter Creek Oktoberfest Autumn Ale

I fished out the last of the Oktoberfests that I had accumulated in the run-up to HalloweinerFest. The last bottle was an Otter Creek Oktoberfest Autumn Ale. The ROK and the Wookie had reviewed the Otter Creek Summer Solstice.

Here is what Otter Creek has to say about their Oktoberfest Autumn Ale:

Oktoberfest Autumn Ale is our version of the perennial favorite Bavarian Autumn beer. Oktoberfest’s deep golden hue matches the fall foliage here in Vermont. Brewed with Hellertauer and Tettnang hops to balance its clean, malty sweetness, it’s the perfect brew for a crisp autumn day.

I found the Oktoberfest Autumn Ale to have the following characteristics…

  • Appearance: Amber with a quickly dissipating foam.
  • Aroma: Malt and a little hoppy.
  • Taste: A little spicy but a little thin.
  • ABV: 4.8%

This was a very drinkable beer. Not as flavorful as some Oktoberfests that I’ve had,  but a decent beer.

  1. While I haven’t had this one, I generally enjoy Otter Creek beers. A few years ago, while on a cycling tour of Vermont, I had the opportunity to visit the Otter Brewery. They’re located just outside Middlebury VT and is worth a visit if you’re ever in that area.


    • As our local sellers have jumped on the craft beer wagon, I don’t know whether to praise the virtue of the mixed six or curse it. My ADHD taste in beer has created quite a backlog in reviews.
