COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend Oktoberfest lager is our most popular seasonal. This brew is red-orange in color, malty but well balanced with noble type hops. It has 5.4% alcohol by volume and is lagered (aged) to create a smooth drinkability. It is most similar in style to a Vienna lager or a Marzen beer. Judicious use of caramelized malt gives this brew a smooth sweetness and deep orange color. It is hopped with American Tettnang, German Hallertau and Czech Saaz.

Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a very small off-white head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Aroma is dominated by roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is also mildly sweet caramel roasted malt with notable grassy bitterness. Not bad, actually

The aroma is grainy and malty with metallic hops. The appearance is deep amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a caramel quality. The palate is average for he style. Overall noting special but it is drinkable.

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Pours clear dark amber with a dissipating, bubbly light tan head. Aroma is of hops, floral notes, roasted malts, some citrus and a little caramel. Lots of roasted malts in the flavour, spices, smooth hops and some grain and wood notes. Very crisp, complex and smooth.

22 oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a thin tan head that does not last. Aroma is malty with some sweetness and caremel. Taste is slightly sweet with plenty of caramel. Finishes smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I had to rerate this after finishing the bomber. Overall the malt profile seemed slightly cloying to me. I have had better Octoberfests from this brewery in the past.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with nice white head. Smell is vaguely of slightly sweet, caramelized malt, although there’s not too much there. The taste improves on the small, but only to a small extent. Still just a touch of sweetness with nothing really accompanying it. Good medium body supporting what is otherwise a fairly common beer. Drinkability is so-so; no glaring factors but nothing too fantastic either. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2010
