Oktoberfest is one of the most celebrated traditions in German culture. And though Kansas may be a long way from Munich, we share the sentiment. Our Octoberfest was only the second specialty beer we ever brewed, and the original batch was first tasted back in 1989. To this day, it continues to be one of our most popular brews, with folks seeking it out both at the brewpub and on the shelves of their local liquor stores.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle from foppa78 - thanks, Mat, for this long-time want! Pours a clear copper on the deeper end of the spectrum with a finger-plus of off-white head that laces the glass and settles unevenly. Aroma of caramel, pils, and amber malts, dry leaves, earth, dried fruits, and nuts. Flavor of mixed fruits, caramel, leaves, toast, nuts, mild spice, and some faint toasted sugary sweetness. Light-medium bodied, with a malty, somewhat fruity mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes crisp. Good marzen.
