Sampled this at the Big Mountain Brewfest in Whitefish a few weeks ago. I thought it was the best beer poured that day. Perkeo’s spot on with the Vienna lager comparison. Too many folks are looking for big gravity and hops in this style. Enjoy it for what it is--an excellent lager, true to its roots.

I had this lager right in Missoula, MT. I was traveling with a friend going to West Yellowstone, MT and we stopped by Missoula to eat lunch so we found Fuddruckers in town and I had a Buffalo burger with the Oktoberfest Lager from the local brewery, Bayern.
I really liked it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark. Aroma of campfire smoke. Initial sip is full with candy malt sweetness. Middle has moderate alcohol mixed with caramel. Finishes tingling on the tongue with a nice bready malt taste and slight hop bitterness. Definitely an American marzen, prob why I like it so much. Screw Munich, I’ll take Montana!

Colour... very dark brown and scarcely any head. Nose... very roasty and sweetly grainy. Palate... light carbonation, especially roasty malt, burnt toffee, dark bread, dark sweet spice and a medium length sweet finish.

Not typical märzen, more brown, malty aroma and flavor, and the hops, alcohol level and sweetness were really balanced. Worth try.

Bottle... Poured deep ruby with a thin beige head. Aroma was robust with malted notes and rich figs and fruit. Really nice palate that has just the right amount of carbonation. I enjoyed the cocoa and buttery malt flavors while floral hops created a nice bittering balance. Finish was clean with a little brown sugar in the aftertaste.
