COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our twist on the German Märzen bier, we give you a Paso Märzen. Traditional imported malts offer subtle honey-like aromas with hints of Noble hop spice. The stars of this brew are the imported Pilsner and Vienna malts that offer malty sweetness that carry through to the end. German Hallertau hops add rich Noble hop character to balance this exceptional Marzen. This beer is 100% stainless steel and gets the name Oaktoberfest as an ode to our hometown, Paso Robles, Spanish for "Pass of The Oaks". True to Oktoberfest custom, this beer makes its debut in time for fall to celebrate the age-old German tradition.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is slight oak-aging, but mostly a lot of caramel and malt. Taste is slightly oaky at the top, but then gets to be more like a normal marzen with the sweet caramel tastes hitting it up. Good though.

Draft at Firestone with Linh. Pours a clear golden body with thick white head. Armoa is biscuity, sweet fruity malts, soft grain and lemon. Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation and light notes of sweet fruity malt, biscuits, grass, soap and lemon. Pretty light overall, but nice.

Alpha10 (363) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
2014/11/24 - Pours a clear yellow/orange gold colour with a foamy white head that quickly reduces to a film. Aroma is cereal, bready malts, honey and a hint of apple. Taste is cereal, biscuit, and muted honey. Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation and a crisp, drying finish. An ok marzen, but the oak is indistinguishable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a clear tan with an average white head. Aroma is a little caramel malt with some bread. Flavor is a bready malt but kinda watery and flat after that. Finish is watery and cracker malt. The name is kinda deceiving. It’s not a oak aged marzen the name has something to do with the Spanish name of the city this is made.

loubar (89) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Not sure what the oak in the name refers to here. Pretty typical lager nose of malt and yeast. Taste is mild roasted bitterness against a bready malt base. No fragrant hops here. There’s a subtle honey like sweetness with a dry finish over a light body. Nothing exceptional but smooth and drinkable.

Hmm, holding a 99 for style, but 70something over all. So, even if it is amazing, it is still meh. And, indeed. It is meh. Aroma is missing, flavor lacking, color bad. Alas, these are flaws on a great brew. Major, major flaws, in a decently made brew.

probstblueribbon (3072) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a full, off-white head. Aroma: Grainy German malts, light Noble hops, melanoidin, clean, straight-forward. Palate: Medium body and moderate-low carbonation. Flav.: Clean Vienna/Munich malts and decent Noble hop woodsy/herbal character; dry with moderate bitterness and a clean, balanced finish.

A well-made beer.

Clear, light amber with white head. Malty aroma. Mild hops. Misleading name, but good.

Firestone Walker Oaktoberfest has a thick, foamy, slighlty off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and sort of thin, splotchy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, honey-like, bready malts, and the flavor is of that, with pleasant, straight-forward bitterness, bread crust, and biscuity yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Firestone Oaktoberfest finishes crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. RJT

From bottle. Pours golden yellow with a small white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma of biscuit and caramel. Taste is the same with slight bitterness. Smooth easy to drink.
