COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Oktoberfest is brewed with the highest quality German malts, hops and yeast using traditional Bavarian brewing methods. The Munich and Vienna malts are the real stars of this smooth, copper-colored, medium-bodied brew. Well balanced and satisfying, our first lager is the perfect complement to your fall festivities. Prosit!!!!

A: The pour is a dark amber color, one could call it copper, I suppose. The head is initially a thin layer of khaki foam, but soon dies down to almost nothing. S: The hops are mildly spicy with some definite earthy notes. A fair amount of lager yeast follows. As the beer comes up to temperature, I get more of the rich bready character and a hint of caramel. T: This one opens up with the dense breadiness I was expecting. Some nice spice flavors to this beer as well, I seem to pick up some nutmeg. The sweetness is moderate with a mild bitterness to compliment it all. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of rolling carbonation. D: A really good beer. Before I knew it my glass was empty and the bottle was gone.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours copper with a foamy 2 finger off-white head. Smells bready and a bit herby. Med body. Tis bready. Just a little sweet, but there’s just a little hop to help cover that. Finish is lightly toasted bready maltiness. But it’s verging on dry.

Aroma of caramel, leafy hops, nutty notes, some lightly toasted grain. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, bitter leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. Petty good marzen.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottled. Poured a healthy shade of medium orange with almost no head sticking around.. hazy. The aroma picked up sweeter caramel and fruity malts with a touch of molasses.. a little earthy accent.. sugary and enjoyable. The flavor found sweet caramel and bready notes at the core.. touches of darker fruit and toasty earth accented.. long, malty finish. Light-medium bodied with too little carbonation on the palate.. grainy, too.. decent feel to it beyond that.

Pours hazy red with white head, aroma has notes of caramel, grain, toasted malt. Taste is sweet caramel, grain, some grass and earth, slightly bitter but mostly sweet finish. Not bad.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Deeper caramel in color, modeate frothy off-white head, decent lacing.   Malty aroma, slight cereal and mealiness.   Has a bit of graininess to it too.   Malty tongue, slight sweet, a little mealy but not bad.   Not grainy on the tongue, thankfully.   Pretty straight forward and clean.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty smooth.   Rich maltiness on the backside, even a little sticky.   Kinda finishes rather bland.   Most of the stuff is up front.   Soft maltiness lingers.   While its clean, it needs a little more umph.   Thanks Bill for the bottle!

9/19/11. 12oz bottle via Cavie! Slightly hazy amber pour, almost red, with a small khaki head that fades but keeps a ring. Grainy caramel aroma with a big malty flavor that tastes of grain, chocolate, and caramel. Nice!
