COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional Oktoberfest bier from Surly? Nein! If you want one of those, grab your passport and head over to Munchen (bring us back some pretzels.) SurlyFest is brewed with three different types of Rye and a single variety of American Hops. Malted Rye, Flaked Rye, and Crystal Rye impart a distinctive biscuit flavor to the lush Vienna Malt body, and dry-hopping with Sterling Hops adds bright, floral hop aromas. A single hop, dry-hopped, rye lager bier? Ja!
Note: 2006 version brewed with Summit hops.

Surly makes it quite clear that this Oktoberfest is their own interpretation of the style instead of a classic fest bier, and that’s a beautiful thing. The dark orange color is a bit lighter than the copper shade of most fest lagers. Aroma is perfect; maybe not strictly for an Oktoberfest, but for me. Spicy rye, floral and piney hops. Interestingly, flavor does seem more traditional. Grassy rye, biscuit malt, and mildly herbaceous, tea-like hops. Medium-bodied and crisp. Delicious.
