The recipe for this beer was put together by Steve Padgett of Nocturnem Draft Haus; this beer was brewed specifically for their Oktoberfest Celebration.
Kugels Bier is a deep brown color with crimson highlights and a thin white head.
This beer has a rich, malty aroma with a bit of earthiness.
First sip is malty with subtle fruity notes, somewhat sweet but quickly balanced by an earthy hop flavor and easy bitterness. Kugels Bier is a medium bodied beer that finishes crisp and clean.
Overall another impressive collaboration between the Nocturnem Draft Haus crew and the Penobscot Bay Brewery, this Altbier is well balanced, flavorful and a low enough ABV that you can have a couple without losing your head. The Nocturnem Oktoberfest celebration runs through Saturday September 28th with an expanded Bier Garden and live Oompah band, definitely an event worth checking out.
