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!

On tap at Whole Foods (Charlottesville, VA). Toasty aromas, biscuity, caramel, some floral hops. Clear amber with a fairly lasting off-white head. Pretty dry, bready, floral, grassy, grainy. Medium bodied.

A solid marzen, meaning that it’s not overly sweet like many seem to be these days. Bready and light, some bitterness from generic hops. The unfiltered nature of the beer smooths the edges, however, and makes the beer.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, syrupy, malty aromas. Syrupy, caramel, bread, malty flavors. Worst of seven beer oktoberfest blind tasting. Not a bad beer, but a bit too syrupy.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Hazed, reddish amber appearance with a small white head that faded fast and left little lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel malts. Earthy, sweet malt flavor with a little spiciness at the end. Aftertaste was a bit mucky

Solid maple body with a bit of malt in the back. I usually don’t like Oktoberfest beers but this is good.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a German style mug. Appearance: The body has a dark amber color with good clarity. From the pour I had a light tan head of foam which slowly settles to a wispy thin film layer. Lacing is minimal and slick. Smell: The aroma has you basic sweet malty character with hints of hops. Taste/Palate: It’s malty up front and brings nice caramel and bready sweetness to the party. Mid way through hop bitterness comes in and adds some balance and light herbal spice. The feel is right about middle of the road and nicely carbonated.
