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.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 (10/25/06) Crystal clear copper body with small but creamy beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, cookie, some floral, light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, earthy, some caramel, medicinal. Light-medium body, some acidity. Better than the first time I tried it, but that’s not saying much. (6/3/4/3/9)

(11/16/02) Cloudy rusty copper body with a small tan head. Aroma is moderately caramel, as well as some toastiness. Taste begins sweet, but finishes intensely lemon sour. Not pleasant, though I wonder if it was mishandled, ’cause my description bears little resemblance to anyone else’s. (5/2/3/1/6)
