The boags copy was nice, and it didn't last to long... a mate who is a boag drinker and stalla, well he came over to wire up my house.....
he did ZERO work, twice (sat then sund) he came to "start" but asked to just try that beer one more time, well the keg was empty and he was asleep
He loved it, told every one about it and now they all ask me to brew it again so they can drink it hence i have never made it again in the fear they will drink it all again
all that said i plan to brew it again in 2 brews time!
From memory it was more hop flavour and aroma, more malt and a soft clean beer with less carbonation. very nice and quite similar you wont have a problem drinking this
My Oktoberfest was a nice, true to type beer I think, possibly the color could have been a tad more amber. Nice nose first hops then malt, malty flavor and a nice zing of hops at the back of the mouth.
If it did well at ANAWBS I might publish the recipe. However, it is pretty much the recipe in the Beer Style Series OFest/Maerzen book by Fix. Restraint and elegance the key to a good OFest
