Notes/Commercial Description:
Oaktoberfest is a true German Marzen bier brewed with premium imported Pilsner and Vienna malts and is spiced with Bavarian hop from the mother land. Light Amber in color, soft malty profile, full bodied lager beer. Fermented with the famous Bavarian Augustiner Lager yeast from Munich. We utilized German Hallertauer Traditions for both bittering and aroma additions adding a rich, noble hop presence to this beer.

Moderate head that settles to rim bubbles. Very few spots on the glass. The liquid is clear and dark gold.

Dross between caramel malt and light cream. Mild but attractive.

The beer is more bitter than the smell (and most Octoberfests for that matter) indicate. Less smooth and far more dry. I don't detect any buttery oak notes. The aftertaste is bitter. Good body/carbonation.
