Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: beernut7 on 10-13-2002

This is a smooth, malty lager fashioned after the famous Octoberfest beers in Munich. Each year around this time, the Germans celebrate the anniversary of the marriage, in 1810, of the Crown Prince of Bavaria. Huge crowds pile into Munich to imbibe the pride of the cities breweries by the stein full.

Free State's Octoberfest is made from Pilsen malt, caramunich malt, lots of Munich malt, caramel pils malt and aromatic malt. These combine to provide a light amber beer with a smooth, clean malt character that comes through clearly. The hops are Perle for bittering and Hersbrucker for a mild aroma.

ST Bottle in pint glass

A: Dark amber/orange color, not much head retention nor lacing

S: Toasted barley, grape nuts,

T: Nice, not too malty or sweet great roasted flavor

M: Slick - in a good way a very drinkable beer. You could easily down a sixpack on a nice cool night

O: Good beer, reminds me of SA Oktoberfest, not too malty or sweet, a good balance.
