I stumbled across the Silver Creek Oktobefest at a bar last Saturday. They are a little brewery in a Milwaukee suburb, if I am not mistaken. The beer itself looked better than it tasted. It was thin, lacking body. The flavor could have been more pronounced as well. Simply put, I rather have another beer.
The other one was recommended to me from a guy at work. He thought the Beck's Oktoberfest was really good. Having seen this at the store on my last trip- actually having just about bought some- I grabbed a sixer when I was buying beer to pay off a bet. At first glance it looked good. Nice color in the glass. The taste was good, full body and pleasant. But after you swallowed it, it was harsh. Upon having a new bottle, realized it was rather skunky. Damn those green bottles! Hopefully I can come across this on tap before the season is over.
Best of 2011 is still the New Glarus Staghorn.
God damn that is good! Get me another!
