COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is a classic Maerzen - malty yet well balanced. A touch stronger and just a hint darker in color compared to what is being served at Oktoberfest in Munich. Our fest bier has a tale and tail of its own. The name for this traditional Oktoberfest beer is Bavarian in origin and translates as "tail of a squirrel".

It poured a brownish color with a white head. The aroma was of leather and toasted malts. It had a medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. The taste was of sweet notes with a nice sweet finish of moderate duration. Not bad.

Slightly darker in color compared to other Marzen’s I’ve had recently, above average head and lively carbonation. Delicious roasted base malts makes this beer standout. Chewy palate and toasted aroma but overall well balanced beer. All the ingredients mingle extremely well together. Well Done!

TheAlum (7051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle from a 4 pack purchased from Binnys Naperville (Naperville, IL). A fun new Oktoberfest to give a go. Pours a nice deeper brownish carmelized color, a gentle haziness, deeper colors and auburn glow striking the edges and bottom. Frothy offwhite head atop dies down to a decent ringer, laces ok overall. Aromas are dry, a bit toasty, earthy floral hops and a bit of carmelized and biscuity appeal. Initial is lighter bodied with just a bit of girth. Carmelized malts, dry and bready malts, some toasty appeal and earthy hop appeal. Dry, light, very crushable with a nice toasty appeal, firm bitterness and cleaner backend taper out. One of my favorite Okts of the new season.

ryecatcher (1376) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle. Medium, clear amber pour with big frothy slightly off-white head, insane retention and real nice lace. Nose is noble hops, toasty malt, white pepper, grass. Mouth is medium-full, lightly sweet, malty caramel, toasted bread, nuts (maybe to feed the squirrel on the label?). Austrian slang my ass... this stuff was named by the Swedish Chef. Tasty.
