As a brewery, we haven’t been brewing lagers for a while. This or that has kept us distanced from that world, but we’re dipping back in with a release that’s coming to you on Friday 10/28. You can expect a beer that’s much like an Octoberfest, with a sturdy malt frame, but cloaked under the cover of October’s timely neighbor, November. Come see us and take a drive through Lager Town

Bottle, shared around the table at Revolution Brewpub. Compared to Revolution’s Oktoberfest on tap, this had less malt impact and a drier finish. Still a nice fall dark lager, and kudos for cool label art.

22oz bomber poured into a shaker. The aroma is a strong combination of dough, hay, and barnyard aromas with a light spice undertone. There’s also a notable grain quality with some orange zest late. A faint cat pee aroma looms in and out throughout the drink. It pours a slightly hazy amber orange with a frothy, soft, off-white head that leaves some puffy lace on the glass. A good, thick, puffy head is retained with puffy / chunky islands floating on its surface. The taste is a medium bitter with a medium light sweetness. The oily and sticky beer has a medium body with a light prickly carbonation. There’s noticeable bread toast and roasted grains on the mouth with some cereal qualities as well. It finishes with a grainy and grassy touch as well as a hint of orange peel - all of which have a mellow lingering in the aftertaste. It’s slightly dry with a touch of astringency.

A solid if unspectacular Oktoberfest style beer. Well made, very sessionable. Reliable and done in a classic way.

Hard to call thsi a marzen, it is a clean lager with almost no character whatsoever.

My second favorite from my visit to the tap room. Big nutty taste followed by a burst of piney hops. Great fizz to it as well. Growler worthy.
