Green Flash Fest Beer: The reference to Fest Beer points back to the German Oktoberfest, which originated in late September on into early October of 1810. This was a wedding celebration for the Crown Prince of Bavaria that lasted for a few weeks. The beer served was the leftover Marzen (the last beer brewed in March) that had been stored in cool caves during the warm summer months. No German beer was brewed during the summer before there was refrigeration. Our version of Fest Beer holds true to its roots as an orange/amber lager with a toasted malt zing and some fancy footwork with Tettnanger hops to liven up the style. 5.5% abv

"A pretty traditional Oktoberfest beer with light caramel sweetness, hints of dough, nuts (no, not doughnuts!) and a little bit of roasted malt. hit the style well."

September 28th, 2012 - Green Flash isn’t one to be left out of the Oktoberfest celebrations. The German styled beers are few and far between in San Diego, but Oktoberfests blossom in Fall like sakura in Spring. Green Flash’s version is different enough from the tried and true "sweet and malty" formula to be worth a try. The aroma is somewhat muted, especially cold and served from a sampler glass, but there’s still plenty of fresh, rich malt on the nose, and a touch of pistachio too. The nose even features a bit of strawberry, adding an extra layer of acidity and tang. The flavor is also acidic, and noticeably sour. Not as malty as in the nose, but with a soft, bubble texture, and an added note of orange marmalade, which is (as always) sweet and bitter, but more to the point, complex.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Golden orange, decent head. Smells caramel, and surprisingly hoppy. Taste is also caramel, grassy, kinda citrusy. Malty for Green Flash, hoppy for an Oktoberfest..
