COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a true German style Marzen lager, fermented with Bavarian lager yeast. We used hops different than any other beers we’ve brewed to date, imparting a continental authenticity. A crisp beer, yet the use of Victory malt gives this beer a roasty, toastiness that is associated with the style.

Draft to taster at the Smokehouse from notes. Pours a clear amber color witha medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have ccaramel malts, medium toasted malts, grass, a subtle fruity character, mostly malt forward, basic Oktoberfest.

5oz on tap at the Smokehouse. ABV labeled 6%, 25 IBU. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent thicker lace. Caramel, nice toastier malt aroma. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Solid, tasty well-done balanced oktoberfest.

Panzuriel (2389) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Out of my take home growler: Pours a rich copper brown, mildly hazy nice head of foam. Nose is Roasty malt with some woody hints. Taste is a nice tangy hop front with a solid malt body and a touch of sweetness. refreshing, medium body with good but not aggressive carbination. Finish is light good bitters.

Sample at the North Market Columbus Microbrew fest on 09/26/2010. I cant believe I have never had this in all my trips to Barleys! Sweet malty taste. Bread, nuts and even some fruit. Plums and apples perhaps. Very drinkable and enjoyable!

JaBier (8307) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2009
On tap at the Smokehouse. Clear amber pour with a thin beige head. Malty aroma with some subtle soft fruit influence (apple, peach) and light hops. Sweet and caramel malts hit the palate first followed by fruit and a bitter hop finish. Nicely balanced o-fest.

3.2
Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draft @ Smokehouse: Pours a clear amber with bright orange highlights. Minimal ring of white receding head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is nutty, bready malt with a lingering sweetness. The first pours of this were relatively hoppy for the style. Almost a tea-like dryness in the finish. Not a standout, but tasty nonetheless.

3.3
Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
Draft @ number 2. A good take on an oktoberfest, aiming at cleanliness and accuracy and doing it well. Clean and bready palate with growing toasted notes. Firm medium body. Obvious, tasty lager character. Soft herbal bitterness closes wraps everything up. Not particularly inspiring, yet what pretty much what I expect when ordering an oktoberfest.

Had on tap at the Columbus Microbrew Festival. This one was not my favorite, but had good flavor.

2.5

On tap at Columbus Microbrew Festival. Nice nut brown pour, but thats about it. A bit of roasted malt on the flavor; funky and out of balance to me, but not terrible.
