COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager beer is brewed to the classic German style. Back in the day, brewers released this stronger beer to celebrate the start of fall brewing after hot summers. Now that we have high-tech refrigeration systems we brew all year, but still enjoy drinking Oktoberfest as the temps start to cool.

12oz can. Poured hazy brown with a thin head. Fresh spicy aroma. Bold fresh flavour lots of depth and malt character this beer has withstood the test of time. Great palate and depth very drinkable I like it.

Bomber thanks to Pawola! Pours a cloudy amber/orange with a large khaki head. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts, yeast, slight vanilla, and hops. Taste similar to aroma very well balanced and drinkable for the style which is typically not one of my favorites. Pretty nice!

22 oz. bottle served in a mug. Seems pretty appropriate for the beer. A: Pours a clear copper color with a one finger height of solid off-white foam forming on the pour. The retention is awesome and it slowly recedes down the the glass leaving some sticky sheets of lace. S: Lagery yeast and pale malts. A slight dose of caramel with subtle spices. There is a mild hop backing to it, but it’s far in the periphery. T: Caramel and pale malts with a slight spiced backing. Light green hops with some lager yeast and malty sweetness. The finish is clean with a light hint sweetness. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Clean finish. O: A very solid representation of the style, but it doesn’t wow me. Very solid malty sweetness and the light hop backing adds another depth of flavor. At 4.99 this a great value and would buy again if i was in the right setting.

Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. It was a bit to sweet.

12oz can picked up at the local shop... pours a mostly transparent but somewhat darker amber hued consistency with a lively feel to it and topped with a quickly settled soapy white head... aroma of toasty caramel malt and darker grains with a hint of grass... flavors are more of the same with semi-sweet dark grains, caramels, and dark fruit. lighter than medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. touch of very light grassy bitterness on the backend.

A nice oktoberfest, especially to battle against the proliferation of pumpkin beers. Lots of bronze golden color. Earthy, malt flavors.

Revolution’s Oktoberfest offering. Less carbonated but very standard Oktoberfest flavor. Sweet malts and a smooth finish.

Pours medium amber. Scent of fresh grain and malts on the nose. Medium bodied and slightly crisp. Could dring this on a nice fall day.

Very good representation of a Marzen. I really liked the aroma and the way this beer looked in the glass. Medium on the hops but lots of nice spice notes. Pretty clear bronze color with a smallish white head and some lacing. Taste is where it really shines. Lots of caramel, toffee, bread, and some other spices that I couldn’t quite put my finger on, but where tasty and unique. Maybe some coriander and even some other stuff comes through as it warms a bit in your glass. I will definitely buy more of this and savor it through October. I love these guys.

Can from pantanap...thanks Kan! - Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Nose is lightly spiced dry bready malt. Taste is about the same, though it’s thinned out a bit and maybe slightly watery. Finishes with some soured bread malt and a touch of herbal hops. Thinnish with decent carbonation, but falls a bit flat.
