Brewed in March and cold lagered for its namesake German festival, this brew boasts a malty backbone with flavors of toasted bread and caramel, creating an even balance of hop bitterness.

I got the growler fresh and opened it immediately, and a friend got me one on tap at the brewpub, and I found no difference when I opened the grower between having had it on tap earlier. My review's going to be exactly the same as my earlier review.

An amber brew with a nice white head and great lacing, this O-fest starts less malty than many and stays that way to the finish. The nose gives hops and these come through with nice bittering in the taste. a decent body with a strong finish and nice snap at the end. Probably one of the better I've had this year and it is one of Maumee's better efforts.

Sample at the brewpub: This beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a nil off-white head. Thin, spotty lacing. The aroma is malty with a fair amount of hops as well. Medium body with more bitter hops than are usually found in the style, however the malt base is still there. The finish is soft and sweet without much lingering malt. Just average.
