Es ist Oktoberfest
so think Oktoberfest Bier

We will be looking for Oktoberfest Beers for this tasting. We do have Hacker Pschorr's Oktoberfest in the case and will look for others from König Ludwig, Paulaner, Hofbräu, Ayinger, and the like.

August Tasting Results

The August tasting was intended to be Sommer Beers that we have not had before or a least for a while. The König Ludwig Weissbier and Hacker-Pschorr Weissbier were new and we tried to get Hofbräu's wheat beer but that was already out of stock so we subsituted what was left of Stiegl's Grapefruit Radler. With two new wheat beers we included an old standard and favorite, Paulaner Hefe-wiezen for comparison. The Warsteiner Premium Pilsner is another bier that has not been in the cooler for awhile. While 21 attended, only 16 bothered to rate the biers. From the score sheets that were returned, there were many favorable comments. The two new wheat beers received an average scores of 4.13 and 4.19. There really was no real loser in this group of beers. The lowest score was the Paulaner with an average score of 3.69 out a possible 5 and 20% of the tasters gave it a 5.

Some of the comments received:
"Love them All!"
"All good Beers. Would drink another one of all of them. One of the better Bier Club nights"
"A great Flight of Beers. All very good to outstanding. No bitter after-taste"
"Best one yet"
"Great selection, great tasting."
"Like Hefeweizen brew so all were good"

If any of these were your favorite, we still have a few in the cooler.
