Availability: Rotating

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.

At the brewpub. Pours orange with a small creamy white head. Smell is sweet honey, lagery, standard Marzen smell with some extra sweetness. La or is sweet and light, with some hints of spice and a slightly dirty Marzen finish. Low carbonation and a lingering honey wheaty taste on the palate. Right on style and at the top of the style, just not my favorite style. Had to try though.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this at the Cigar City brewpub in the airport...

This was a truly memorable Oktoberfest... perfectly balanced between a sharp Noble hoppiness and earthy maltiness that truly has this beer rocking and rolling... beautiful to look at and smell... amazing... I am loving this beer... had this with the charcuterie board and it paired perfectly with the ham and cheeses... uber fresh and delicious... I could smoke through these in a hurry... I could go on but... you get the picture...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: growler
