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.

Thin, even white head on a classic orange brown body with normal clarity...nice roasted malts with a slight sweet, doughy aroma...medium to full palate, with a smooth texture and finish...sweet, even malts...a lingering finish, impressive in its singular effect...another winner from Left Hand, a beer equally made for sessioning or swigging....bring on the candy corn.

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy copper wiht a lacy off-white head. Noble hops over a nutty malt aroma. Medium body and fine carbonation. A bit of caramel, nuts, seemingly sweet in mid-palate rather than on the front. Crisp-ish finish with earthy hop traces.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled on 08-22-07. Clear copper with a medium-sized head that lasts. Earthy sweet corn, toasted nut, caramel, cocoa, and barber shop spice aromas. Flavors of caramel, grain, cocoa, sour apple, and grapes on the front; turns more earthy and dryish, ending with bittersweet pecan and a slightly sour caramel-cocoa note. Smooth, medium bodied with a drying finish. A bit atypical of the style: heavier with seemingly more roast malt, but this is the tastiest Oktoberfest I have sampled.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Poured medium amber, forms an off white head. Aroma is of carameled malts, perhaps toffee and cream. Flavor was of a typical Marzen beer. Malts, spices, caramel, with a slight biscuity ending. Eh, pretty good beer, not my personal fave style, but considering the season it was clean and refreshing.

typical octoberfest beer. Malty, easy drinking and good with bbq. nothing offensive about this one, but doesn’t have the malt depth of some others.

jgentgesdo (682) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours hazy orange with a medium tan head. Nose is creamy malts and faint grassy hops, oregano. Nice, sweet nutty malt backbone quickly changes to an interesting spicy and yeasty middle, with grassy hops notes. Slight caramel/toffee aftertaste. Rather bitter for a Marzen. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Draught at Cap Ale House. Nice looking reddish orange amber color. Off white head. Aroma is malty, grainy. Caramel and toastd malt flavor with light spice character. Standard malty marzen with a slight grainy taste.

Cybercat (4180) - Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours a rich, clear, dark honey-brown with a thin but somewhat persistent head. Aroma is strong, malty and spicy - I got hints of cloves and cinnamon - with a touch of hops. Flavor is rich, mouth-filling, mainly malty, with spicy undertones. Smooth and very pleasing, this is an excellent autumn beer.
