COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kind of like our Münchner, only BIGGER! This full bodied, malty, mellow amber lager is brewed only once a year, to celebrate the Oktoberfest. Munich & Pilsen malts make this beer big and smooth, while German CaraMunich malt gives it a rich amber hue. This style is also known as Märzenbier and Weis’n Bier. Best enjoyed in a one liter Mass with three fingers of foamy head!

Had on tap at the brewpub. Medium orange pour, light, crisp white head. Fairly decent lacing. Sweet, bubble gum-like aroma. Some ripening vegetable notes to start off - some pumpkin perhaps. Back end has some caramel notes and there is an ever present smokiness to this on that is appreciated and enjoyed. Decently thick mouthfeel. Very decent Oktoberfest.

Dark cherry stain body with a large stiff foam head that takes a while to settle. Something in the aroma is making me thing of sand. My guess is the pilsen malt, which tastes kind of sandy to me, comes through in the aroma more than the flavor. Lots of malt here. The body is sweet, big malt, wood. In the cask conditioned version, the hops come up a little bit (not noticeable in the normal version) and the carbonation increases. There's a slight hint of lemon in the finish. Good beer and easily drinkable.
