The first “Oktoberfest” happened in Munich, Germany in October 1810. This lively celebration was created to celebrate the marriage of Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen by her father King Ludwig I.

Our Oktoberfest is brewed with Munich and Pilsner malts and Noble German hops. It is smooth, clean and rather rich with a depth of malt character.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 The 2012 version is better than previous attempts. Nice ruby color and aroma, but the brew is far too bitter to be an Oktoberfestbier. Cut (way) back on the hops and you might have a great beer here.

16oz can. Filtered orange-tan body. Thin off-white head. Doughy, malt centered, true to style. Great balance. So much better than most US examples. Medium bodied, very drinkable, but has some depth too. Another solid offering from Lazy Monk.

6 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Consumed on 9-12-14. Listed as “Lazy Monk Oktoberfest!” and 5.5% ABV, but I assume it is the same beer as the one entered here as “Lazy Monk Oktoberfest Lager.” Pours a shiny, solid, deep gold. It’s lighter in color than a typical Oktoberfest. Beige head. Looks good. Light, floral aroma. Served too cold, dulling the smell. Dry, lightly fruity smell as it warms, but the smell still isn’t very good. Malty, creamy taste. Looks and tastes more like a heavy pilsner than an Oktoberfest. A bit buttery. Dry finish. Simple but enjoyable taste. Dull aftertaste. Surprisingly full body for a lager, medium body overall.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Pick up growler from Just Local Foods in Eau Claire, WI. Pours a clear copper orange colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that dissipates clean with no ring. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of roasted nuts, toffee and a touch of cinnamon. Taste is medium bodied, some smoked and toasted caramel malt, minimal floral hops and a touch of toffee. Finish has a toasted caramel aftertaste, a hint of sweet malt secondary flavors that quickly disappears. A tad more toasted malt compared to most other märzens but still festive for the season.
