Notes/Commercial Description:
This festive lager is our tribute to Duke Wilhelm IV's marriage hundreds of years ago, which inspired the production of the first Oktoberfest. Malty up front with notes of sweet toasted bread and a light floral bitterness. Balanced, traditional and incredibly drinkable.

Poured from a12 is can. Full 3 fingers of head. Dark golden hue. Hints a bread and subtle fruit fill the nose. Very traditional oktoberfest beer along the lines of traditional original German oktoberfest beer. Smooth and frothy. Taste bread, hops and a slight hint of citrus. Could drink this all day. Thanks for the extra in a trade!

Amber with reddish hues and two fingers worth of head that fades and leaves lacing that doesn't stick really at all. Smell brings bready aromas with caramel, spicy and grassy hops. Taste brings bready malts and caramel sweetness with some spicy and grassy hop notes. Medium carbonation and medium body with a slightly creamy feel. Overall a decent representation of the style, but not at all the best.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Nice clear copper with a thin off-white head and a good amount of visible carbonation.

S: Malty sweetness with mild toffee notes, light resin and grassy hops. There's a slight tinny aroma as well, but not off-putting.

T: Toasted bready malts, mild grassy hop bitterness, and some sweetness from the malts. Residual breadiness in the hang.

M: Medium body, low alcohol presence, and modest carbonation sensation.

O: This was pretty good. I think I would have enjoyed it more with a touch more hop presence to bring it more in line with American märzens. Either way, enjoyable but nothing I'd actively seek out.

Pours a reddish amber into my Stone IPA shaker pint. Smell is sweet bready malts and a bit of orange zest. The smell is pretty faint. Taste follows the nose. There's a sort of fruity sweetness in there too and some caramel. A very clean tasting beer. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth. Carbonation is a bit low but completely fine. Just a really easy drinking beer. Tons of flavor and just a bit of bitterness.
