COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
A pretty nice rendition of the style. Aroma is malt driven, light bread and honey. The color and palate are light, but the flavor comes through a little more with a touch of extra richness.

DYCSoccer17 (3327) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 15, 2014
24 oz sample on tap at The Burger Saloon in Woodland. Aroma has some sweet toffee and caramel. Lightly metallic, too. Transparent copper-Orange body with a small, cream-colored head. Starts with a moderately sweet, nutty, and husky maltiness. Light metallic twang in the middle . Finishes a little herbal, and slightly dry. Not shabby.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a nice orange color with an off white head. The aroma is very pleasant with dry, toasty bread and light Munich malt derived plum fruit. The flavor is the same. Dry and toasty with a decent dose of earthy bitterness. Very malty yet dry. Smooth full bodied with a snappy finish. Great Oktoberfest.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 29, 2013
This is a really good Oktoberfest. Malty and grassy, yet with just the right amount of sweetness. A filling beer, but quite right for the season. A cloudy-ish orange color.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2013
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.
