Commercial Description

This traditional lager is brewed with generous amounts of Munich malt, giving it a wonderful orange hue with a rocky, off-white head. Light hop aromas balance out a slightly floral nose from the German lager yeast. Balanced hop bitterness offsets the substantial malt body, while the lager yeast adds a subtlety of flavor that makes this a great rendition of a German classic. Prost!

A good pairing for the hearty German fare served at Oktoberfest parties in Munich: rich sausages and pretzels, buttery spaetzle or creamy soups. Ideal serving temp: 48-50° F..

    A very true to “style” example of a traditional German Oktoberfest. Smooth, maly, somewhat sweet and caramel flavored. Enjoy the season. Prost!

    Lakefront Oktoberfest poured an amber color with a light tan head that dissipated quickly with no lacing to speak of.
    Very light aromas that were bready, toasted malts and some hops.
    Tasted very malty with just a touch of sweetness. Little hop bitterness at the end with a dry finish.
    Medium bodied with decent carbonation, slight tongue bite.
    Taste is very good, worth a try.
