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!

Bottle, shared with TylerDurden before pouring the rest into the toilet. Looks nice enough: orange copper colour with a thick off white head. The aroma is foul, sulphurous and eggy. The palate is tinny caramel with pithy bitterness. Completely unenjoyable.

Pours a clear amber colour with a light white blanket over top. Aromas of roasted malt, grass, Munich malt not as rich as a marzen usually is. Flavour is an initial slight sweetness, toast, moderate bitterness and a dry finish.

Thanks to cfrancis for this beer. Pours a clear orange with a white top and some spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast, spices, bread & Munich malts. Taste is yeasty, bready, malty and a good bite of hops for the style.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
Pours a nice burnt orange, with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy hops, cardboard, bread, grains, malt. The flavour is a little more hop forward than I’m use to for this style, some more cardboard, grains, bread, malts. Meh, it’s drinkable, and slightly interesting, but nothing special.

Robe rousse ambré, arôme minime de caramel. Goût très doux et pure, une bière somme toute très rafraichissante.

HeistAlmighty (1146) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 10, 2012
600ml bottle. Crystal clear amber, moderate creamy head. Not a strong aroma, costly caramel malt with a hint of fruitiness. Less sweet than I was expecting in the taste, big whole wheat toast on the finish with some noble hops. Very clean and crisp on the palate. Overall, less sweet that other marzens, but very refreshing.

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!

Metalchopz (2399) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
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 (114) - 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.
