COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oaktoberfest is a true German Marzen bier brewed with premium imported Pilsner and Vienna malts and is spiced with Bavarian hop from the mother land. Light Amber in color, soft malty profile, full bodied lager beer. Fermented with the famous Bavarian Augustiner Lager yeast from Munich. We utilized German Hallertauer Traditions for both bittering and aroma additions adding a rich, noble hop presence to this beer.

From a keg. Pours golden with some orange. Some malt, cracker and bread crust with some orange citrus in the finish. Reminds me of an APA, really. A little flora and spice.

Got a 1/2bbl of this from the brewery for the kegerator in my office. This is a great daily drinker at 5.0% ABV and is a style that appeals to a large number of people’s palates.

Draft - Lots of grain and a bit of orange. Clear orange with a rich beige head. Grains and bread upfront, with a bit of orange and caramel and grains in the finish. There is a nice bitterness throughout that finishes clean

Kind of a rich golden color. Translucent. Adequate carbonation maintains a large, crisp white head. Faint aroma but reminiscent of pilsner malt and fall. Refreshing palate with the malt underplayed. Heavy lace.

I had just finished off a bottle of Firestone Reserve Porter, when I rolled down the hill to my favorite beer shop, West Richland... Decided to fill a growler with the Oaktoberfest, a half with the Reverend from Avery. Wish I’d reversed that call. Drinkable and has some weight to it. None too exciting.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
On tap at 10 East. Absolutely awful. Corn/masa in the aroma, corn chips on the flavor. I know that corn is a bountiful harvest in the Fall, and this is a beer brewed for the Fall season but this was absolutely awful. Might just be the worst Firestone Walker beer I’ve had to date. A very strange beer.

On tap at FM Smokehouse. Light amber with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of florals, shrubbery, caramel, light grassy, biscuit. Taste is of caramel, floral notes, honey, grain.

travita (3857) - Frisco, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Tap. The look is very clear, bright, off white head, and golden in color. The smell is malt, crisp, oats, subtle but nice, and good. The taste is make, grain, noble hops, and crisp. Well put together

Average marzen at the brewery. Light bread on mouth. Golden perfection. Not on my top list. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
