In the tradition of the Bavarian Märzen beers of Germany, we cellar our fall lager in cool tanks for the length of the summer, producing an exceptionally clean-smooth flavor. With its pronounced malty “Viennabread” sweetness and herbal Nobel hop finish, there’s an Oktoberfest in every sip.

Tap at Rhombus Guys in Fargo. Very slightly hazy orange pour with a small head. Mildly toasty, earthy, malty, and pretty simple / straightforward. Not bad.

Pours a nice golden copper color with a one finger white head. Aroma is super clean, just a slight toasted note. Taste is also really clean, with some nice toasty malt notes and a nice bitter grassy hop that finishes clean. Overall just a really solid brew. Brewed in March and bottled in August, it has time to calm down and clear out. Medium light body instead of light and 5.3%ABV

On tap at Lazlo’s in Lincoln. From Notes 9/29/2012. Pours an orange color with white head. Grainy, earthy, malty flavors with a slight bitter aftertaste. Weak oktoberfest.

Pours a nice color. Nice flavor and a bit of a bite to it which stands out from other Oktoberfests.

Meh. I wouldn’t call this bland, per se, in fact if its anything, its too sweet. Brown sugar and candy in the flavor to an unsettling degree. One of the lesser varieties from this usually decent brewery.

Tap @ Empyrean. Pours hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Boring, grainy, toasty malty, straw aroma. A bit tangy, bitter floral hoppy, herbal, grainy flavor.

Hazy amber.Light thin head. Ok carb. Aroma is pretty nice with some vanilla bready sweetness,very slight butterscotch carmel. Taste is malty carmel with light vanilla slight orange but not citrus.Kind of flat but bready,slight toast Somewhat peppery maybe moreso in finish. Finish is mildly orange tart citrus.Its good but seems flat,maybe under carbed.

This is my favorite Oktoberfest. Munich malt dominates the flare or and aroma. Noble hops balance the flavor. This is my favorite empyrean/Lazlos beer. Should be their signature.
