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.

omhper (20441) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2008
Bottled. Clear nut brown, creamy off-white head. Caramelly nose. Piney hops covers the chewy caramelly malt. It’s sweet with a syrupy breadiness. More full bodied than oktoberfestbiers and much more hoppy. Grainy, caramelly finish with salty bitterness. With it’s firm body and heavy impact it is a perfect dunkler bock.
