Notes/Commercial Description:
Though it is not necessary to drink this beer out of a mug that is larger than your head while dancing to polka music and wearing your lederhosen, you will find this lager's unbridled festivity difficult to resist. This ode to Germany's classic fall lagers is as clean, clear, and quaffable as any that has ever weighed down the table of a German Beer garden. The crisp maltiness of classic Munich malt compounded with the delicious notes of Bavarian hops gives this clean-finishing beer just the right flavor for the end of the summer.

Santa Fe Octoberfest has a thick, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, lots of bubble streams, and minimal lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sour-dough bread crust, grain husk, and even soap (but, that can’t be right). Taste is of fairly sweet, sough-dough bread crust, a mild hop presence, syrup, and nut shell. Mouthfeel is medium, and Santa Fe Octoberfest finishes crisp and refreshing.
