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.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear copper with a thick creamy off white head with good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet malt with toast and light caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a bready malt with spicy grain and a nice bitter dry finish. Easy to drink, a very good marzen from left hand.

Thanks to Robert’s Reality for this. The pour was deep copper, with a 1 to 2-finger head. Caramel malt and some fruit was present in the aroma, with the flavor being caramel malt, some slight fruit, and some cabernet flavor in the finish.

12oz bottle, bottled 8/6/12. On the back, this says "malt liquor"... Thin khaki head, fades to minimal. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Totally clear copper color. Smooth carbonation, on the lighter side. More dry finish. Lightly sweet bitter taste. Spicy hops present, toasty malts. Kind of a fruity taste. Cherry? interesting way to do an oktoberfest

BOTTLE: amber pour with a reddish hue, small white head. Bread on the nose, maybe some caramel. Taste is toast, butterscotch, medium mouthfeel. Not too bad.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange with a medium to large creamy off white head. Bread, grain, malt, earthy hops. Medium body, light spicy booze component, earthy malts with a bit of biscuit and caramel. Finishes with a touch of plumy sweetness, and some hoppy bitterness.

12 oz. bottle shared at The Royale, but I believe he got it at Wine and Cheese Place. Hell of a label; I’m liking the new artwork for Left Hand. Pours a clear copper color with a small bone white head. Aroma is almost reminiscent of a lighter mead, with honey, caramel malts, and ripe red apples. The flavor shows all of these, along with some nutmeg and Vienna and Munich malts. Medium-bodied, with a sticky mouthfeel and low carbonation. Sweet and smooth. This is a great take on the style, and way underrated.

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2010
en bouteille, couleur léger cuivre, col blanc. Arôme, malt type lager, pas mal de grains, fruité/caramel. Goût, profile est malt, ton de pomme caramélisée qui tend à couvrir le palais pour un fini un peu astringente, fine amertume avec un côté houblon herbe, effervescente au palais. Garde un aspect malt agréable.

Thanks to pilsnerpeter for sharing. Deep amber-coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly toasty with a lightly burnt malt character. Brown sugar and toasty aroma. Flavour matches the aroma nicely. Malty and caramelly with a touch of spiciness. Lightly grainy sweetness. Fairly clean.
