COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fall seasonal September-October. For centuries the Germans have celebrated the coming of Autumn with the roll out of a special once-a-year amber lager. With a malty flavor, clean finish and more alcohol than summer beers, it is a beer that was eagerly anticipated by Germans during the summer months and savored when it finally arrived. Lucky for us, the wait is over! It�s finally here. We proudly present our own Oktoberfest Lager. Brewed in true German style, we use only the best German malts and hops to create this perennial favorite. The beautiful amber hue comes from toasted and caramel malts, while the maltiness is contributed by the German Munich and Vienna malts. The cold fermentation temperature and even colder aging give this fine lager its clean, crisp finish. Brewed strong and lagered cold, this one may sneak up on you, so be careful. Brewed with Pale, Munich , Vienna , CaraAmber and Caramunich malts. Hopped with German Spalt hops.

Rated while drinking: Pours a nice amber color with a big off-white head. Reeks of of sweet caramel malts, roasted nuts, and sugar. Smells like what an Oktoberfest should smell like! Flavor is heavy on the sweet burnt malt, backed up by a pretty complex aftertaste. Solid and balanced. Crisp on the palate, but not too much carbonation. Fresh though. Very drinkable. Yummy Oktoberfest for this brisk October night. Growler at Hegedorns for a little under 12 with deposit.

(draft @ 2006 Autumn Festival of Ales - Honeoye Falls, NY) Amber in color with a thin tan head. Aroma is rather malty and bitter with some hops, but mostly sweet malts. Flavor is smooth and malty with a nice sweetness at the end that’s complimented nicely by a slight hoppiness.
