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.

Another great American Marzen style beer, although classified here as a Vienna. Pours out medium golden with lazy carbonation and a thin head. It gets better with a nice sweet malt aroma, and even more robust malty taste. Mouth feel is slick and slippery, lingering malt sweetness and a snap of hop bitterness at the very end. Prost!

EtTuCthulhu (1080) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 24, 2014
This beer is a very clear amber color with a medium white head, and the aroma is fairly light blends lager yeast and some caramel malts. The taste is mildly sour, a touch sweet, and a touch bitter, and there is hardly an aftertaste beyond some lingering carbonation bite. The palate fuses a slick and thin texture, medium-light body, and an average carbonation.

Pint at eastbound on pint glass night. The glasses didn’t come in so I talked the girl into giving me a Blue Moon glass! Woohoo!!! I had hoped for more oak but it was mostly just another Oktoberfest. Decent but not amazing.

Lovely orange/brown color. Very rich taste. A little on the sweet side and a little sparkly. Well rounded with nice amount of warming alcohol

77ships (4164) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
355 ml. bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! Bottled on 05/08/2014. Sparkling golden, almost no head. Light sweetish metal nose, faint citrus herbs. Lightly bitter herbal, metal, white sugar, bitter grass & hay finish beer. Light body. Not a very exciting lager. Drinks easily but nothing to get exited about.

Pours golden yellow with totally no head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and malt. Taste is caramel, yeast, hops. Average stuff.

b3shine (5593) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with eggshell head. Smells grainy and mildly malty with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a touch of caramel. Average on the palate. Not bad, but forgettable.

trapped (837) - New York City, TURKEY - OCT 18, 2014
Draught. Clear rich yellow with off-white spongy large head, doughy aroma, disappointing yeasty taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Unexpectedly ordinary for Firestone Walker !

SG111 (147) - - OCT 17, 2014
On tap. Clear golden color with a creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, malts, sweetness. Flavor is similar. Light, crisp, refreshing. But still plenty of flavor. Sort of a spice character (cinnamon maybe) that’s subtle but there. Quite good.

Bottle. Clear yellow gold. Bland aroma and taste, very low malt for an Oktoberfest. Nothing special.
