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!

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.

Pours a clear bronze with escaping bubbles and a fair khaki head that settles to a thick film, leaving some soapy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, noble hop spice, crusty bread dough, and light lemon. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, oily, soft carb, finishing toasty and dry. Nice oktoberfest.

A really great version of this style, sorta in the midpoint between the Americanized really sweet versions and the more biscuity German versions I’ve had. Kinda reminds me of honey nut cheerios with less sweetness. Clean on the palate and easy drinking. Really very good stuff, one of the best Marzens I’ve ever tried.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Clear, intense auburn brew with a lacey white head. Standard 12 oz longneck. Sweetish cereal malt aroma with just a tad of toast. Sweet, lightly toasted bready flavors, a little tannic, very lightly tinny like a bock. Quick biscuity finish with some tea in the aftertaste. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.

PorterPounder (5711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Tallahassee. Fl - Publix Supermarket - Mahan. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling dark copper, light off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has some light toffee accents, a touch of date-like fruitiness. Flavor has a solid malty character with some raisins, bubble gum, a touch of molasses and a bit of toffee in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice smoothness to it. Soild Oktoberfest.

Dark amber. 1 inch off-white foam. Aroma of alcohol, spent grain and peppery barley. Taste is evaporative alcohol and soapy malt with a tingy malt backbone. Rough finish. Pass.

LTD #7! It’s an Oktoberfest, and it tastes really good. German beer done in a PAC-NW style.
