Review: Dominion Octoberfest

Dominion OctoberfestDominion was nice enough to send me a few bottles of their Octoberfest to sample because they are a great company. For good or bad,  that got bought up by a huge conglomerate. So while I like to reminisce about the Old Dominion Brewery that we loved to frequent, I know that at the end of the day, they still make great beer.

Dominion does a great job of making craft beer that is still accessible for most drinkers. Their Octoberfest is no exception. It pours a nice, big head that stuck around even after the beer had settled. The beer is a deep copper color.

The aroma was a little heavy on the alcohol but also presented hints of toasted malt.

The toasted maltiness continued throughout the flavor. The linger had a bit of a metallic taste. While the Dominion Octoberfest isn’t a bold as the Legend, it’s a very drinkable beer that would be a wonderful addition to Thanksgiving dinner.

    It looks to have been a really nice evening. You are so right on how to cook prawns. We have a place in Salt Lake City where we can get really fresh seafood. Prawns and scallops are so much better when just barely cooked. Espcaielly prawns. They lose all their nice texture and turn to rubber so fast.
