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.

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.

Bottled. Pours a nice transparent brown, off white head. Caramel malts Some mild hops to finish. A pretty decent marzen, tilted more to the dark side.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 On draft. Strong flavors of caramel and spice, without being overpoweringly sweet. A little bit of toast or cracker as well. Finishes dry, very dry. Best of the style I’ve had in the region, maybe up there with Victory, Great Lakes and the slightly unusual Urban Chestnut version-ish as the best American take on the style I’ve had.

Beergeek23322 (2340) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2013
10/9/2011. 22 oz. bottle. Pours copper color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aromas with caramel and light fruit. Flavors are a bit sweet throughout and not a lot of hops on the finish. Good example of the style.

Perfect seasonal brew. Color is amber red. Smells of honey, with a taste of Mellon, brown sugar and honey slightly toasted with nuts. Very good Legend beer.

nimbleprop (4975) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12oz bottle pours a transparent copper amber with some creamy, slightly off white head. Smells very malty, cracker, grist, yeast, orange, bread crust. Flavor is malty, cracker, baked biscuit, a little root beer, some roasted parsnips, yeast. Smells and tastes like an altbier. Creamy finish. Decent, but not true to style.
