”We will, we will rock you …” promises Queen in their famous hit song,
and so shall we too rock you with Stallhagen’s latest lustrous red
Octoberfest ale. Brewed in the American style and enhanced with
red malt – Carared – that gives the beer its signature deep red hue.
Stallhagen Rocktober characteristically presents the American style
citrusy hop aromas that blend nicely with the fruity aspect of added
German hop Hüll Melon. While this style typically focuses on toasty malts
here you can expect a balanced beer with a rounded medium high hop
character. Rocktober gets its vigor from malts that give enough caramel
to keep the hops “under control”. It has been said that red ale like this
one is a perfect synthesis of the flavorful intensity of darker ales and the
crisp, hoppy finish of a blonder beer. Rocktober is robust and tasty,
mouth feel is medium-bodied.
