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.

Came here during a recent vacation and this was one of the only brew from their flagship series that was available in growlers.

Served in a hotel room clear glass.

A: Fairly murky for a lager like this, and with a slight head that died down quickly and didn't come back.

S: I got more stomach acid than I would have liked, but this still had a nice nuttiness that makes the style so poplar. Fairly understated which is appropriate.

T: I found myself liking this more and more the more I drank. Germanic in spades and with a hint of honey, but not overboard on the sweeter side the way Great Lakes is.

M: Perfect carbonation bill and my palate felt the brews former present afterwards, but the taste didn't linger there for long.

O: Who doesn't like this style? Haven't met many who have said "no" to that question. I'd have this one again.

12 oz. can poured into a Teku. That's right. A lager into a Teku.

Appearance - Clear deep amber body. Nice off-white head and a medium collar with a few wisps on the surface.

Smell - Bready and caramel malt. Very floral, too. Smells sweet.

Taste - Very bready up front. A bit of caramel sweetness in the middle. It gets amplified by that floral and kinda fruity flavor in the back end. Makes it seem sweeter.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very drinkable. Well carbonated.

Overall - I don't like that floral and fruity back end. Tastes great up front, but that part doesn't seem to work with the rest of the beer.

nice light orange amber with a good looking two inch plus head on the top. Amble carbonation was kept alive throughout which really gave it great retention and helped to keep the lively look of it going.

earthen malted grans. Lots of cereal and spice with almost what smelled like a touch of pumpkin. I dont know if it was really strong enough to be a major competitor in the overall scheme of things light and refreshing. Naturally the biggest player here would be roasted malts and yeast. Nice little floral taste in the finish, which was also quite dry, I have to say a lot drier then I thought it would be fore sure. A nice drinker that went really well with dinner.

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.
