Anchor does have a new fall seasonal: BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red. It looks like it's replacing Humming Ale in their seasonal lineup. I'll have to try and find some; I've always been a big fan of Anchor's beers.

I'm a big fan of all the fall beers as well. I have been searching for Samuel Adams harvest pumpkin ale and can't find it, only in the Sam Adams fall verity case. I saw Bluemoon had a harvest pumpkin beer but I didn't want to buy a case without trying it first. Anyways I bought a case of Sam Adams Oktoberfest Sunday and am enjoying it. Love Oktoberfest season.

Great Lakes Oktoberfest is the only one I like, and that's cause it seems more like Winter Ale to me than an Oktoberfest.

Just bought a sixer of this over the weekend. Fantastic stuff. I don't necessarily agree on the winter ale description. I get the malty, lager tones that a good Oktoberfest beer should be.

Definitely not a "must drink" beer.

Great Lakes Oktoberfest has a sweeter taste to me, something i'd associate with a pumpkin fall beer, but not an oktoberfest.

I don't know what it is, but I've become less of a fan of the saisons over the last year or so.

I never had any of the Great Lakes beers before, I know there pretty popular in this area. I may have to try the Great Lakes Oktoberfest.

It is sweeter than your traditional oktoberfest beer, but you can tell it's a lager style, Marzen beer. certainly not a winter ale.

Have you ever tried some of the German originals? If not, you should think about picking up a sixer of Lowenbrau, Spaten, Hacker Pschorr, Paulaner, etc. as a baseline for Oktoberfest beer. You'll find a lot of varying, complex flavors in the German originals.

If you have not been to Max's or the Penn Brewery for Oktoberfest, I'd suggest you do that also. Sometimes its the quantity that matters... :fist:

I had a pretty good Pilsner at a mussel bar in Bethesda the other day. Good talk.

Can anyone suggest a good apple beer. Had shocktop apple and it was pretty good. So i figured i would try angry orchid apple, but that was a hard cider, way to sweet. So i tried this reds apple ale, it was way to sweet also. What i hoped for was a beer with a light apple aftertaste. I got apple kool aid with a hint of beer.

ANy others tried something like this?? I am looking for something with a beer taste with a light apple flavor, any suggestions??

Unibrou Ephemere, this beer is without a doubt what you're looking for.

Up in Erie today. Have to hit Wegman's and stock up. Amazing what difference 120 miles makes. All Southern Tier bombers and Unibroue 750s $6.99, including Pumking. Also have Lavery and Voodoo stuff. Not the best mix and match selection today, though.

Didn't see OAt.

Boy, am I glad I gave Lavery Liopard Oir another try. Excellent. Must have had a really bad bottle before. Must try for anyone who likes saison dupont

Edit: Yeah, this is right on. Pepper, grass, lemon, and just the right amount of that band-aid on moldy basement floor. Then just a tiny bit of brett tartness at the end comes off almost as apple.

Australian's invent beer that doesn't cause hangovers.
