COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

Draft sample @ Crossroads Spirits. Poured a slightly hazy deep copper color with a finger of fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, caramel, and yeast. Taste is slightly sour, doughy, light fruit notes, and caramel malt.

dunn4040 (124) - Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Smells like malts, sweet bread, a little spiciness. Taste like biscuit, honey, a little bitterness, and big malty flavor that lingers long afterwards followed by some hops and spices. Mouth feel is on the better side of average. Solid Oktoberfest style beer.

falco242 (236) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2013
From the bottle...clear bronze pour with just a bit of head. Nice breadiness to it for an Oktoberfest, and a bit more malty than typical. Makes it more full bodied, and it works well. Solid seasonal.

Lemke10 (752) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2013
This pours a clear, amber color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is mild with scents of toasted malt and spices. The texture is smooth and creamy delivering a great tasting Oktoberfest. Finishes with a slight hoppy spice after taste. Very well made and probably one of the better Oktoberfest beers I have had in awhile

Tap pours clear copper with a touch of red and a little off white fizz. Minor aroma of sweet grains. At first there doesn?t seem like much in this beer, but under further drinkage there is in fact something. While being quite light and seemingly thin there is a nice grainy spice that lends itself well to the seasonal trends of food and brew. On top of that there is a decent dryness that ends with a nice earthy feel and a graininess. Decent overall
