COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why fly to Munich for a genuine Oktoberfest Lager when this one’s inches from your lips? A smooth, malty lager brewed in the true Bavarian Style, using Two-row Pale, Vienna, Caramel and imported roasted Munich malts, moderately hopped with imported Czech Saaz and Yakima Sterling hops. Flavors reminiscent of honey, nougat and roasted nuts. Complex and beautifully balanced Prost!

Clear orangey amber with a thin white head. Nose is delightful with some buttery toasted english muffin and a touch of caramel malt. Flavor is crisp and earthy/toasty with a sweet roasted munich malt, with a little grassy bitterness. A bit bitter and dry on the finish.

Pours a clear amber - pretty lively carbonation - fairly malty nose, with quite a bit of toffee/caramelized sugars, a bit of apricot, a light peppery hop note, maybe just a slight burnt note - moderate carbonation - medium body - fairly rich Munich maltiness up front, some toffee, lightly toasty Vienna character - a slight acidity arrives late to balance a bit - the finish brings an odd spiciness (cinnamon) - not sure where that’s coming from, but it lessens the enjoyment and makes the finish a little harsh - some good stuff happening, but the finish derails things a bit.

Ernest (6258) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with light notes of dried mango and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Basically a softer, simpler version of LTD 05. This is my third test-drive of this one, and while it’s not as enjoyable as 05 (this is more syrupy sweet), it’s still a decent entry in the improved LTD line.

Gription79 (2282) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Bread crusts, malty, noticeable acidity. I enjoy the malty profile of this beer but the finish is a bit off.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of biscuit, bread, slight spice, touch of grass. Taste is a mix of caramel, some slight bread, hints of cracker, slight hoppy grass and spice, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. Decent.

Bottle. Is a well balanced beer with a caramelly aroma with a little hop. Malty flavour, with a hop finish. Honey, roast nuts and a bit of pine.

Picked up at the COOP tonight... Pours a very clear amber... Nice head but little lacing.. no real complaints. Nose is all about the malts... I would guess a hint of dark Munich... nice toasty presence.. very clean. Malty through and through without ever being "sweet".... minor spicy hoppiness, but it is in the background as expected. Well done... I really like this one... The LTD series has been tickling my lager itch for a while and this is fresh and pretty wonderful.

Sledutah (4919) - Utah, USA - SEP 4, 2013
12oz bottle from the state store
Pours clear amber with a medium size off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel, nutty and mild smokiness. Flavors of toasted malts, caramel and some bitterness
A nice, easy drinking beer

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle. Clear brick red body with a short white head. Pleasantly malty aroma that gets close to the character seen in a lot of marzen and amber lager: cookie batter, toasted nuts, breads, toffee, etc., with some apple esters and minimal hop aroma. Some kool-aid powder and cosmetics and maraschino cherry flavoring show up as it opens. Thin body and fizzy with semi-sweet silty allspice and red apple candy flavor. Chalk, vitamins and calcium carbonate and candied cinnamon red hots and wax / crayons. Big Red Soda.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, deep red orange appearance with a light brown head. Sweet caramel malty, a bit nutty, little roasted, grassy, herbal aroma. Pretty smooth, slightly sweet toasted malty but fairly dry flavor. Light caramel, chewy herbal notes throughout. Better than I was expecting. Pretty good.
