COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden amber in color, our Oktoberfest is brewed with generous blends of imported malt and hops. This Limited Edition Lager is delightfully balanced and very smooth. A perfect complement to autumn!

asedzie (586) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Bottle. Malt forward aroma of fresh baked bread, light yeastiness. Flavor has lightly toasted grain, overriding caramel sweet notes. Finish has just a bit of herbal hoppiness. Pretty good American Oktoberfest. Liquid bread with just a bit of hops for balance.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Fiery amber, quite clear, moderate foamy off-white head, decent lacing, light carbonation.   Soft malty nose, seems slightly sweet, a little bit of honeycomb cereal.   Somewhat mealy on the tongue, certainly malty, moderately sweet, clean, with a finish that lingers with sweet malts and a bit of creamed honey.   A pleasant sweet lager.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, even smooth and a bit creamy.   Only thing I would say that detracts is its resemblance to a cereal.   Tone down the sweetness a bit and I think then we’ve got something.   Thanks toJah Noth for the bottle!

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - DEC 25, 2009
Taste 12/9 bottle. Looks: Cloudy red body with a thin top. Aroma: Grainy and yeast. Taste: A good marzen that doesn’t have the stickiness some of this style have. A flavorful beer that beats out most other marzens I’ve had for balance and finish.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2009
12oz bottle from BevMo La Jolla. Pours a mostly clear orange amber with a fluffy off white head, some spotty lacing. Nose is pretty much your standard marzen, a little roasted malt, and light hop presence......this one had a very light touch of yeast. Flavor was roasty with a slightly metallic finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some moderately sweet caramel malts and fruity, spicy hops. A light toasted bread and yeast too. Not bad at all. Flavor is quite impressive. A moderately sweet malt up front before a good amount of spiced fruits come in. Slightly bready malts and yeast as well as a good amount of toasty caramels. Finishes with a little more bitterness than most Oktoberfests, but blends nicely with some toasted malts and sweeter caramels. Lingers for a good amount of time after a medium to full, smooth body and mostly dry finish. Overall, a hoppy, yet malty and toasty Oktoberfest. Rich and smooth with lots of flavor. This was surprisingly good!
