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.

Pours a very clear copper color with a very small off white head that dissipated very quickly. The aroma is brown bread and caramel. The taste is very similar to the aroma. Seems like the aroma and flavor have weakened since it's an older bottle.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 3" soapy off white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Color is rich copper with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: toasted barley malt, earthy and citrus rind hops, toffee, raisin. Mouthfeel: light to medium with a dry finish. Flavor: bready malts dominate, with caramel sweetness and some moderate earthy and citrus hop balance. Overall: quite enjoyable. I would buy this again.

UrbanCaveman (183) - Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2015
12 oz bottle, poured into a shaker pint at ~40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a perfectly clear coppery red-amber, and forms a pale tan head with a shorter lifespan than a Taylor Swift relationship. Okay lacing. Smell: Malt. Yeah, that pretty much covers it. There’s toast, bread, and caramel, all sweet, with some vague nuttiness and shades of biscuit. Taste: Malt. Yeah, that pretty much covers it here, too. Toast and bread get the marty (that’s malt-party) started, with a heavy dose of caramel sweetness coming in like a crowd of already-drunk crashers bursting in and instantly raising the volume level to 11. Some faint hints of walnut and Brazil nut drift in behind that, like a handful of introverts clinging to the walls, keeping their heads down and not talking, even to each other. Towards the end of the marty, earth and dirt come trundling on in to put the kibosh on all that sweet, bready noise, not unlike a pack of cops in riot gear with tasers in hand. Mouthfeel: Yep, that’s a marzen. Overall: I enjoyed this one - not too much hop presence, plenty of malt. Would repeat.

Bottle at home. It’s bready, caramel-y, malty. It’s an average, drinkable marzen.

ordybill (824) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Appearance, has a murky orange color with a small white head. The aroma is big on sweet wheat and hops. The flavor is full of malt with fruit and wheat filling in the gaps. The brew is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and has a creamy texture. A really fine version of an Oktoberfest beer.

bbrock81 (314) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a bright orange with a nice foamy head that does dissipate after a couple minutes. Aroma is somewhat generic, a most beers of this style are. Basic bready, yeasty maltiness. Flavor comes along better, with the same yeast and sweetness, but a more bready, biscuity aspect. Very nice. Palate is typical. Overall a damn decent Oktoberfest.

JDBaker11058 (1647) - Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2015
appearance: deep clear copper, short, creamy near-white head, some lacing. aroma: sweet caramel, toasted dark brown bread, maybe a bit of stone fruit. taste: caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toast, graham cracker, then a small dose of fruit (raisin or cherry) underneath. finish: a bit of earthy, slightly grassy hops cleans away some of the sweetness. notes: This is a tad fuller, sweeter, and fruitier than the standard style, but it’s very tasty and very well done. Would drink again. Bottle from Total Wine & More, Alexandria, Virginia.
