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.

jgb9348 (5325) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Deep amber coloured body with a dense tan head. Aroma of strong malt, a bit of hops, a lot of peanuts and some light caramel scents. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour with potent nuts and some caramalised sugars, tucked into a bit of hops and some mellow yeast flavours. Aftertaste is very mild and pleasing - not harsh nor alcoholic at all. Overall, a decent marzen - really not bad, and probably better than most american attempts at the beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 13-December-2007.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2007
The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear medium dark reddish amber beverage with a modest sized frothy off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left some good lacing on the glass. The aroma was consistent with a good Oktoberfest with good notes of toffee, caramel bread and a hint of floral hops. The body was medium-light with average carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started out just barely sweet and stayed that way through the medium length finish which was slightly on the dry side.

Pours copper in color with a small off white head. Aroma has bit of sweetness. THe taste has a bit of caramel and the finish has a bit of bitterness. Overall this was a bit of a beer. Not very impressed.

Pours a copper amber with a medium orangeish frothy head. The aroma is sweet, grainy, malty, peathy, a little nutty. The flavor is grainy, mildly sweet, not too hot. The palate was pretty average.

McGarnigle (601) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottled 9/18/07. Clear copper color with fluffy tannish head. Mostly standard Oktoberfest stuff, caramel-toffee and toasted nuts. I thought this was a bit sweeter than others, although there’s some hops and dryness at the end. Still, the aftertase wasn’t as clean as I’d liked. The body is nice, with soft, fine bubbles.
