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!

Rating number ten of this buxom fraulein, ja vol! Hazy golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma of peppery straw. Taste is similar. Decent body for the style.

Light amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Weak nose of dough, honey, and caramel, but you have to search for it. Flavor is slightly sweet with toasted bread, caramel, and almonds, which is followed up by a subtle bitterness. Pleasant enough, but nothing really stand out. Kind of safe and non-descript.

On draft. Toffee aroma. Flavors of butterscotch and toast, a bit of sweetness. Fizzy mouthfeel, strikingly fizzy. A good Oktoberfest, and one of Port City?s best beers.

Drought. Amber color with creamy beige small head, light doughy aroma, low carbonation, slightly bitter hoppy taste, long finish. Nice but not great.

Bottled. Brown clear orange pour white head. Standard issue marzen. Not too bad. ......

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 (3336) - 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 (3523) - Lewisburg, 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 (71) - 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.

Bottle->shaker. Cloudy amber with small offwhite head. Aroma and taste are straight marzen, with grains, malt, bread. Decent.
