Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Whaddaya mean Oktoberfest season is over!? This one pours a clear amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly buttery biscuit, orange zest, and sweet flowers. The taste holds notes of orange zest, caramel, light toast, and a bit of grass. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Overall, a pretty nice little O-Fest, nothing crazy, but an eminently drinkable autumnal brew.

Oktoberfest pours a dark brown clear color with hints of orange. There is a profound malty backbone aroma, that had hints of a brown sugar. The taste was well carbonated, and had a strong malty taste. Easy to drink, liked the carbonation, would grab another. Overall I found this a very good Marzen, full taste and very enjoyable.

Golden amber in the glass, very clear with a small off white head that falls quickly leaving little lacing.

The aroma is a nice blend of lightly sweet malt and light earthy hops.

The flavor blends lightly toasted bread with lightly caramel flavored malts. Lightly earthy and somewhat spicy hops blend the elements together making a very drinkable beer. The finish comes up a touch dry which helps keep things from being too sweet.

Smooth, low carbonation, light side of medium body.

A very nice and very drinkable Oktoberfest, quafable even! The balanced mild flavoring would make this a great beer to pair with many foods.
