COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thanks to New York State farmers we now have fields of hops with the same terroir, subtle characteristics, and flavors of hops grown in Germany. This means you can count on a good authentic, easy drinking, German-style Oktoberfest beer with a dark copper color and loaded with sweet toasted caramel malts. A mild hop profile made up of Cascade, Chinook, and Nugget from Valley View Farm in LaFayette, NY and Mosher Farms in Bouckville, NY delivers a clean finish and a hint of citrus. Prost!

Out of a bottle best by 12-20-15, which I think was optimistic. Amber color with a short lived off white head. Caramel sugar nose with some bad perfume notes. Some burnt caramel and cardboard, ripe fruit and soured lemon peels, and some stale popcorn in the finish. Maybe better fresher.

Draft at Pony Bar. Pours orange with a white head. Bready and lightly sweet malts, faint earthy notes, and a nice fresh clean finish. This one just hit be the right way; clean, drinkable, and just enough flavor to keep it from being boring.

On tap at the Adirondack Pub and Brewery. Clear orange with a thin to medium white head. Touch sweet and malty, hint of caramel. Sweet, malty fruitiness to it. Finish is a nice balancing bitterness.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
Mild sweet maltiness and some DMS. Medium brown colour with dense, off-white (nitro?) head that laces nicely. Mild, sweet malty aroma. Simple malt flavour. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. On tap at the brewpub.

(Actually called Marzen that day)...A creamy nitro feel conveys powerful sweetness...Curious vegetable notes harass the oncoming oranges...Another sigh closer to saying bye...

muzzlehatch (4466) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Medium-to-dark amber, slightly reddish tint, little head, very clear. Light malty nose. Quite sweet, sugary, little carbonation, very smooth. Simple, probably hard to drink in quantity as its on the verge of cloying.
