COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old time brewers in Germany made a malty, high gravity beer in March (Maerzen) which they consumed with great ceremony in the fall. The coincidence of a royal betrothal in the autumn of 1810 gave Bavarian beer lovers ample justification for the two-week long bash known as Oktoberfest.

Pours a deep crimson color with a medium to small head. Aroma is rosty and grainy malt with some caramel and some noble hops. The flavor has some roasted nuts and some herbal bitterness, very dry and very tasty.

DSG (5730) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2009
(11/10/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Clear amber color. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Sweet toasty flavor with some bread and caramel. A bit drier in the finish. Medium-bodied.

auerbrau (3164) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 18, 2008
On tap at the Philadelphia location. Pours a brilliant sienna-orange, with a tall finger of tan foam. Sweet grain sugar nose, fresh baguette crush and some pumpkin seed. Flavor is rather bland. Some generic Munich malt, a bit of toast, and some light hops. Really generic and blandish. Dry and crisp. Not the sweetness, malt character or expressiveness I’m looking for. Drinkable, but plain.

Growler courtesy of JB175. Pours copper with a reddish tint and a nice sustained white head. Smells of caramel, dough, wildflowers, light tea. Tastes spicy and lightly bitter with a touch of citrus and a dry malty finish.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
On tap at KSBF 08- Good clear amber with a decent foam head. Hops and a grain malt body. There was a slight spicy hop bitterness that was a little bit off for me. Otherwise good beer.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at KSBF ’08. Clear amber with a big foamy head. Spicy noble hops were very present in both the nose and flavor. Some bready malt present as well. Decent but a good example why more hops aren’t always needed.

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft pint at the Philadelphia brewpub. Reddish amber with a thin gluey head. Classical middle-of-the-road caramel malt. Medium hop tingle. Nicely balanced, but just an average O-fest. (#3183, 11/8/2007)
