COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our only regularly produced lager, this rich malty beer uses just the right amount of noble hops to balance the Munich Malts and features an ultra clean finish to complete the package. Brewed with local spring water, organic malts and organic hops. Oh yeah!

Thick foamy off white head, that quickly dissipates. Pours a clear deep amber red. Night malty smell to this beer, with notes of chocolate, oatmeal, and caramel. The smell is deceiving though, the taste is not as malty as the smell would make you believe. A quick malty taste quickly gives way to a dry hops. Notes of resin and pine linger on the tongue, however a slight malty-caramel taste creeps in at the end. Great looking and tasting beer, this is my first Marzen and I am impressed. From what I gather it is not as malty as a traditional Marzen, but it is still a great brew non the less!

Purchased a single bottle of this 2012 edition, at the LCBO. Pours a clean amber colour with a foamy off-white head, decent retention and fluffy lacing. Hardly any carbonation. Not as malty as expected for a märzen. More on the hop side. The taste confirms this, but the malt is more present here in the flavours. Bread grains, mild caramel and the hop creating a nice dry bitterness in the finish. So, hoppier than most Okterberfest I have tried, but this makes this one interesting. And let’s not forget "local" and "organic".

LBarouf (113) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
750ml bottle. Copper, thick bubbly white head with an orange tint, lots of streaming bubbles. Some fruit, nuts, and spicy hops in mild aroma. Taste is good - soft medium mouthfeel - some malt sweetness up front but a bit watery too - but the back is filled with some sharp hops that kick this one up a notch. Very drinkable. A fine Oktoberfest.

It pours copper; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: lemon-zest, walnut, and wet-hay. The taste is light bitter that finishes dry; there are notes of: walnut, lemon, and resin. The palate is medium-light bodied, low carbonation, and medium finish. Overall, it’s pleasant but, lacks intensity.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
600 ml bottle. Pours a clear, copper-amber with a nice beige head. Smell is malty, caramel. Taste is very malty, lots of caramel, light spices. Touch of herbs, some pepper in there, too. Good finish. Average body, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Not super tasty, not super unique, but a decent beer nonetheless.

Mellow gold colour with almost no carbonation from bottle. Aroma is bready and doughy. Taste is mild and ends with a good caramel - like aftertaste.

daniel0017 (386) - Yukon, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
clear dark ruby amber body not much carbonation with thin, offwhite bubbly head. faint aroma of grass, funk and some smoke. tasty blend of munich malts, bitter hops offset by sweet malted grains with notes of watermelon. finsh is clean, well balanced but with a long lasting bitter finish.

Clear golden copper pour with big off white head. Aroma of malts, bread, and slight hops. Taste of malts, slight bread, touch of caramel and a lingering metallic hop finish. Medium carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Metallic taste a little off putting.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Bottle: Pours a lightly hazed golden-orange with a decent off-white cap. Aroma is bready -. Noble hop woodiness is a prevailing note, a bit of mustiness. Medium bodied - could be a bit more substantial. Flavor follows aroma - bready with a decent whack of Perle bittering and Hersbrucker woodiness, finish goes dry with a decent noble hop bite at the end, a very good Marzen but they need to bulk up the body .

Bottle purchase as soon as they were available at the LCBO in Ottawa: Poured a clear amber color ale with no head, no lacing and no carbonation. Aroma consists of light sweet grainy malt. Taste is also dominated by unrefined grainy malt with some light sweet caramel notes. Body has a weird oily texture with no carbonation. Definitely not too good and even wondering if this was a bad bottle as there was no carbonation and malt notes were off – I’ll have to put this on the re-rate list.
