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 rich, clear, dark honey-brown with a thin but somewhat persistent head. Aroma is strong, malty and spicy - I got hints of cloves and cinnamon - with a touch of hops. Flavor is rich, mouth-filling, mainly malty, with spicy undertones. Smooth and very pleasing, this is an excellent autumn beer.

ordybill (829) - 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.

BBD 12/4/14. Clear amber pour with a beautiful dark ruby cast. Normal head and retention, excellent lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel hints over a faint pear like citric note. Almost medium body with a distinct creamy texture. Heavier than most Oktoberfests, which is a plus. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescence throughout. The wonderful flavor profile is intense, complex and well balanced. It begins with a burst of biscuit against a caramel backbone that effervesces into a mild bitterness in the middle. The bitterness is herbal in nature (with a bit of rind), gives the tongue a nice tart pucker, then releases into pear notes. The finish is clean and leaves you with a mild bitterness over a faint biscuit sweetness that is somewhat dry. One of best!

Dacrza (693) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Thin, even white head on a classic orange brown body with normal clarity...nice roasted malts with a slight sweet, doughy aroma...medium to full palate, with a smooth texture and finish...sweet, even malts...a lingering finish, impressive in its singular effect...another winner from Left Hand, a beer equally made for sessioning or swigging....bring on the candy corn.

Amber colored. Slightly hazy. Small white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, and nuts. Flavor is the same, but it is really nice. It just works together. Its got all of the flavors from most fest beers, but they work together the best. Smooth and drinkable. Each sip made me want more. The best Fest beer I have drank this season for sure!

Pours a deep amber with a one finger head.Has the alcohol and fruitcake aroma of a bock beer. At 6.6% abv it is the strongest marzen I have had. No noticeable hops in the aroma or palate. This is in my top five marzens.

Beautiful marzen. The copper malty notes are present in abundance. I enjoy the higher ABV of this one.
