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.

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.

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.
