COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Port City Oktoberfest is a traditional Märzen style lager, brewed with all German malts and hops. This beer is amber in color, with malty, gently sweet flavors of crusty bread, leading to a clean dry finish with a touch of noble hops. Our Oktoberfest is served in the ’keller’ or ’Zwickel’ style and is unfiltered.  Prost!

Nice, general, all-purpose octoberfest that I had this year. Not at all memorable, but a decent example of the style. On another note, I kind of like the minimalist style of the branding of Port City. Either that, or it is the general, run-of-the-mill design by committee that so often occurs in the DC-area.

Elwood (3190) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. It pours a hazy, ruddy amber with a small off white head. Slight caramel and bread nose. Light fruitiness with toasted malt, bread, and light caramel notes in the flavor. Light balancing bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Decent.

DiarmaidBHK (3396) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine Alexandria. Pours brown with a very thin head. Has a bit of a musty bready smell. Kind of dry on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not a big fan of Port City and this one’s not changing my mind.

ScottWallace82 (64) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle into a glass. Pours a hazy amber color with thin, fast dissipating had. Mildly malty aroma. Nice mouthfeel with no harshness. Malty with notes of honey. A very nice, easy to drink märzen.

Appearance: clear copper, with one finger of tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma: caramel, toffee, toast, a hint of nuts and grassy, herbal hops. Taste: toasty, with brown bread, caramel, a hint of brown sugar, and a decent hoppy bite to clear the palate. Finish: crisp and smooth, with a bit of lingering toast. Notes: Perfectly acceptable.

12oz bottle pours a clear orange with some thin, creamy, white head. Nose has some malt, orange, roasted root veg, some dried leaves, some chewy bread. Flavor is very similar, a little bit of honey, malt, orange, some carrot, bread. Medium bodied, crisp finish. Straight forward, but decent.

MadRobin (1940) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Hazy amber with large cream-colored head and very good lacing. Mild aroma of toasted grain and toffee. Taste of lightly toasted grain, granola, caramel and light earthy, citric hops. Very well balanced and remarkably tasty. Medium body and high carbonation with a very pleasant mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
