COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our next specialty beer, an Oktoberfest Bier, was brewed using eight different malts and two varieties of hops (Sterling and Perle.) The lager yeast used will allow the maltiness of the beer to dominate.

Alright, fairly normal - similar to the Sam Adams version. There isn’t much to say about this one, typical dark amber colour, strong malts, subtley hopped.. good seasonal.

2005 version and major change over the past: Coppery hue with a small fading head and some lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and toasty malts, hints of plum and apple, honey, and a bit of grassy hops. The taste is surprisingly fruitier than expected, lots of caramel apple at the forefront. Grassy and earthy notes as well. Not really coming off as a tradtional marzen even has it is malty. The feel is quite average and a bit watery, the bump of ABV to 6% still does not show. An okay brew and I finished the growler with ease.

Nose is all malt, caramel and slightly roasty. Surprisingly thin bodied. Malts are raosty but faint. Taste just sort of lingers. No evidence of the hops, really watery.
