Commercial Description

This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

    Appearance- Deep amber color with two fingers worth of light tan head. Fair amount of sticky lacing.

    Smell- Faint aroma of toasted malt and bread.

    Taste- Bready with a caramel malt flavor. Notes of nuttiness and a slight hint of spicy hops.

    Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and slightly creamy. Nice amount of carbonation with a dry finish.

    Overall- Pretty good oktoberfest. Worth having again.

    This is perhaps the best Octoberfest brew that I have tried to date. That said, let me qualify it by saying that, in general, I do not care for Octoberfest brews. It is crisp and pretty dry with a malty start and a smoother finish. It is a good autumn-time seasonal, and head and shoulders above what I have tried in the past.

    Poured into my pint glass the beer is dark orange brown with just a touch of haze. The head is about an inch and light beige in color. The head leaves a decent amount of creamy lace around the rim. The aroma is mild malt. Some sweetness with a touch of wet grass. The flavor is malty up front then a sweet grassiness with a nice bready finish. Dry as a bone with medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall a nice marzen. Put on the pile with others.

    Amber colored, clear with thick white head. Caramel, malt, herbal aromas present. Taste sweet caramel and bready malt with a light hop taste that lingers. Light bodied, finishes dry, carbonation is a little lame. Overall ok, probably would not buy again.
