COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Marzen or Oktoberfest style. Long, cooler fermentation lends a smoothness to this malt-forward brew.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Draft @ the brewery in Stevenson: Clear amber, nice head and lacing. Nose of fresh pine and grass, creamy light malts and some bitterness. Flavor is clean, snappy, pilsnerish. Not super malty. Good, clean, light.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Sampler tray at the brewpub. Amber pour with an off-white head and some sticky lacing. Smells of bread, caramel, light floral hops. A little watery in flavor, with biscuit, caramel and a hint of hops at the end. Not one of my favorites from this usually stellar brewery.

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Tap @ the Horse Brass... Poured orange with a bubbly white head. Nose had light fruits, sweet grains, an a dab of floral hops. Dry palate, but ver full body though. Tasted of twigs, biscuit malts, cookie dough, toasted almond, a clean lager finish. Not all that hoppy for a "Hop"toberfest.

On tap at Horse Brass Pub in Portland. It has been a while since I sampled this and my memory is fading. I’m not sure there was anything particularly memorable - a highly hoped sweet malty beer.

harrisoni (14139) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2006
On tap at Horse Brass Pub, Portland. Chestnut red with disappearing beige head. Nuts, syrupy malt. Fullish in mouth, bit of hop on end. Syrupy malt further on. Bit watery on the flavours. Some underlying hop.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Had this on tap at Brouwers Cafe. Small creamy, off-white head that coats the sides of the glass. Dark brown color. A more spicy aroma than one would expect from a typical marzen, but this is Walking Man and we are in the NW. Hint of hoppiness in the taste, but mostly malt, allspice, cloves. Not much carbonation.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Draught at alehouse. Peppery nose. Interesting. Hazy dark brown colour. Modestly hopped. Good but not deep flavour, there didn’t seem to be a lot going on. Rather sweet at first. Modest balanced finish, but doesn’t linger. Seems lower in alcohol than it is. It’s different to any other Walking Man brew I’ve had.

This was by far the best oktoberfest beer i’ve found locally made. I thought by the name that it would be over hopped, but it was balanced nicely and really easy drinking. Nice toasty malts up front and a well balanced finish. Overall this was so smooth and balanced you could drink a ton of this.
