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.

Superb example of a balanced and thoughtful Oktoberfestk Marzen. A nice strong beer for fall and beyond, with a nice hit of spices on the nose and a caramel finish. A great local Chicago beer.

Orange amber. Fruity orange malt with hops. Flavor is fruity toasted malt and balanced hops. One of the best Oktoberfests I’ve had in awhile.

drpimento (3126) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Nice head, but more of an amber rather than traditional red (personally for this kind of beer, I prefer traditional). Aroma is caramel malt and hints of toast and hops. Flavor’s similar to nose, on sweet side, good carbonation. Body’s a bit thin. Good enough finish. An ok Okfest.

A bit hoppier than usual for style but a nice nutty Oktoberfest is hard for me to turn down. Good stuff.

JPDIPSO (5604) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Bronze color with a taller ecru colored head. Some hops aromas (a touch citric) and hint of caramel and toasted malt. Light sweet flavors. A bit nutty and some floral hops mixed in. Not real clean, not toasty and refreshing, I’m quite certain if a brewery in my fatherland were to bring this one to market there might be a revolution. 10/12

Draft at Dark Horse, 11/17/15. Great win by my Terps! Clear orange color without much head or lace. Nice malty presence on a small hop note. Average carbonation. Solid beer.

ffbot (350) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Nice pour, orange yellow with small thin head that went away after a sip. Malt, hops, alcohol, barley, corn, yeast in the aroma. Taste follows, very balanced. Nice hop and pine presence, balanced well with sweetness and a bitter aftertaste. Nice

12 oz can, poured into a shaker pint at ~40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a beautifully clear dark-honey amber, and forms a massively fluffy slightly off-white head that leaves lacing on the glass just by diminishing. Smell: Glazed doughnut with pepper sprinkled atop, Taste: Thick bread, sweet caramel, slight hints of toffee, white and black pepper, vague suggestions of earth and wood oils. A bit of a floral tinge at the finish. Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium, and sharp. Overall: I enjoyed this marzen. I would drink it again.
