Our fall seasonal is an ode to the brewing traditions of Germany. This amber lager is brewed in true Reinheitsgebot fashion using the finest imported German Malt, German Hops and German Yeast. Incredibly clean and balanced, this lager has a wonderful malty backbone and a hint of earthy hops. Traditionally released in early fall, this beer will make you want to stand up and sing "Ein Prosit!" Additional Information: The Oktoberfest in Munich started in 1810 as a celebration of the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. The festival was such a hit that it turned into an annual event celebrated for 16 days from late September to early October. Oktoberfest beer comes from the Marzen style. These beers were bigger, richer beers brewed in March and stored in caves during the hot months of summer. In the fall, they were enjoyed at the Oktoberfest celebration.

Vegas Total Wine bottle. First Hangar 24 beer and I must say I’m a fan. Good fest beer with caramel malt and some spice. Maybe a little "dusty" in the aroma. Pleasant.

Bottle: pours golden amber. White froth that fades fast. Medium carbonation. Malty aroma dominates. Clean and a little toasty. Medium to light medium palate weight. Medium sweet with low bitterness. Fresh malty palate. Nice clean flavour. Good length. Little influence from hops or yeast. Very refreshing..

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Very nice and refreshing German Marzen style beer. I’m impressed with the , smoothness, and delicious flavor for a lighter beer style then I normally prefere to drink.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is malty with a little noble/earthy hop. Flavor is pretty much the same. There’s enough hop to give a little tang to the maltiness.

On tap at the LAX Marriott, which has a surprisingly rad beer selection. Wasn’t too thrilled that this was the H24 seasonal, but it turned out to be far better than the usual marzen. In some ways it reminded me of the Foothills version, which is bracingly hoppy to balance out sweet malts. Enjoyable, especially for the style.

hopscotch (10085) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, wispy, stubborn, white head. The aroma furnishes notes of orange blossom honey, marmalade and biscuit accompanied by a lightly earthy factor. Full-bodied with restrained carbonation. The flavor is a swirl of marmalade, toffee, honey and a mild notation of earthy bitterness. The sweet, malty finish is a touch medicinal.

12oz bottle, no date from Olive Tree in OB a couple months back. Dunno how I have not rated this yet--glad I checked. Clear copper orange with a small creamy beige head, good retention. Lager yeast and plenty of toasted malt and grain make up the aroma, simple but skillfully done. Flavor follows suit with just a tinge of grape, not much in the way of hops. The finish is dry, bitterness at a 2-3.Light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Damn fine beer. These guys are wonderful.
