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.

Growler purchased at the brewery and consumed on 3/13/12.

Pours a hazy dark amber color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring.  Minimal spots of lace left behind.

Earthy aroma with lots of soil and grassy hops balanced by sweet malt notes. Hints of caramel and toffee followed by bread and biscuit.

Medium bodied with soft carbonation but slightly watered down.  Decent balance of earthy, grassy hops, straw, hay, bread and sweet malts.  Hints of biscuit, caramel and toffee.  Decent but a bit watered down and too earthy/soily tasting for my liking.

Serving type: growler

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

Poured from tap into pint at tap42 in ft Lauderdale. Honey amber pour with no head. Smell is big malts and some light dried fruit....smell is exactly like magic hat #9.
Taste is super malty but some dried fruit and brown sugar notes....again very similar to the maltiness of #9. Its easy to drink, nice flavor and prob my last oktoberfest of the year...good not great.
