COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No season is as synonymous with beer as autumn, when the most storied beer festival of them all, Oktoberfest, takes place in Munich, Germany. Since 1810, this celebration of good food, good company, and, most importantly, good beer, has most prominently featured Marzen-style lager–so much so that many refer to the beer simply as Oktoberfest. Our Oktoberfest is a traditional Bavarian lager featuring all-German malts and rare German hops. This dedication to authenticity produces a beer that would be as at home in Munich as it is here in the Midwest United States. The aroma is authentic, the taste sweet and malty, and the finish crisp and hoppy; perfect for a beautiful fall day!

12 ounce bottle, bottled in August 2013. One of my friends gave me this a couple weeks ago. Served in a mug, the beer pours an orange/copper color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like toasted malt, bready malt, and a bit of fruit (apple). The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some herbalness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, but I wish I would have been able to try this when it was fresher. If I get the chance to, then I’ll review it again.

Poured from a bottle. The short-lived head was the first hint this might be a disappointment. The beer is unpleasantly sour with an even more sour after-taste. I really like Oktoberfest style lagers. This is not a good example.
