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.

Canned three weeks ago, according to the date stamp underneath the can.

Pours a lovely amber with a short tan head.

Aroma of biscuits and a hint of sweet grape.

The flavor is nicely malty and sweet with a hint of hop bitterness to provided a bit of balance. The aroma of biscuits or rolls comes over strong in the taste, too. Very nice.

Almost a chewy body.

A nice diversion from the hoppy, bitter beers I typically drink. Enjoy it this Octoberfest season. Why drink a German beer that's spent who knows how long on a boat when you can have a fresh Octoberfest brewed in Florida like this one?
