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.

12 ounce can into dimpled mug; no canning date, but from 2013. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, pear, apple, floral, herbal, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, floral, pear, apple, herbal, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, herbal, floral, pear, apple, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a fair amount of yeast esters with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest style. All around good balance and robustness of malt and moderate yeast ester flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Medium amber color, not much nose. Most surprising to me was the presence of coriander flavor in the beer. Not bad, but not my go to choice for an Oktoberfest beer
