COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ancient timelines talk of dark days, plagued by hardships and Kingdom demands. When hope was all but lost, a legend emerged. A plumber. With copper pipes and an uncanny wit, he battled fierce foes and saw to the brewery’s opening. Our Octoberfest is malty, smooth and exceedingly drinkable. It is perfect to celebrate and honor today’s legends. We use locally grown wheat from MA, Munich malt and noble hops. 14.5°P

Six pack from DeBuca’s. Pours out a light copper color with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thin lace. Light sweet malty aromas and flavor. Nicely balanced. Light and easy drinking. Smooth texture.

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2014
Taster from Tap at the brewery. Full amber malt nose, some caramel, earthy. Sweet, rich amber malt flavor, old school Oktoberfest beer. Caramel, grains, biscuits. A good example of a traditional Maerzen.

Pours a clear dark amber with no head. Nose is caramel, toffee, mineral water and light grassy hops. Taste is loads of toffee malts and a coppery mineral water finish. Smooth and packed with a ton of flavor while still being crisp. Great fall weather beer!

bellco33 (389) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2014
On tap at brewery: Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, and sweet malt. Taste is a bit of sweetness, but is pretty mild. Definitely grainy, some caramel, doesn’t quite taste like a marzen. Thin body, it’s okay. Note: had this later in a bottle and it definitely tasted different. It had a metallic flavor, which made is significantly worse. On tap it’s alright.

I love Jack’s Abby, but a marzen is one of my least favorite styles. However, this one was palatable and for that I give them credit. The caramel malts were very nice.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount sweet grains and bread with a hint of toffee. Flavor starts with bread and grows in sweetness with sweet grains and toffee.

Gold pour at GABF with a white head. Crisp and clean as all JA beers seem to be. The malt flavors are highlighted by a perfectly hopped beer. Really nice.

canary dog (665) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Light orange-copper hue, with nice foamy head. Very lightly sweet caramel like malts, with an almost buttery finish. Very smooth and drinkable. Clean and delicious. Yeah, this is the best American Marzen/Oktoberfest I’ve had.

ScipioA (334) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours an unimpressive yellow, but with a nice big pillowy head on top. Bland aroma of ’beer’ even once the head has died down. Maybe some bready notes in there. Fairly sweet balanced by spicy herbal hops. Smaller notes of alcohol and smoke. Slightly herbal, refreshing yet bitter finish. They absolutely nailed the mouthfeel and stuck a perfect balance between thick and thin, fizzy and flat. This is a solid lager, had it from a pint bottle poured into a mug.
