Taking a step away from our namesake, once a year we craft a lager worthy of extra days in the cellar.

Poured into glass seidel.

Appearance: Lovely amber. No head, no lace (admittedly slow pour)

Nose: Malty, light and sweet

Taste: Malt up front, a little wheaty. Light notes of fall spice.

Feel: Light mouthfeel, smooth

Coop's Oktoberfest is pretty typical of the amber end of the style, malty and moderately sweet. Have had on tap as well, which was a little stronger in flavor. Not bad at all.

Pours a clear darker golden color with off-white head. Malt, bread, hay, cereal, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more malty goodness.

First had this Oktoberfest poured from 12-oz. can, purchased in Norman, Okla., into faceted mug. Nice color, COOP's Oktoberfest lager is also fairly true to style.

Poured out a clear, amber color with some reddish highlights. It smelled floral and grassy. Lots of sweet malty notes, too. It was very spicy and had a nice sweet caramel malt flavor. It was soft and smooth with a dry finish.

This stuff is best within about 30 seconds of the pour. Very thin head which dissipates quickly to nothing. Almost no nose at all. Looks nice though - pretty copper color.
The real problem is simply the taste. To me its almost on the border of being rancid. I've purchased this two years going now, and both 6 packs were alike. Its just not a great beer, not a good example of an Martzen and not good with anything. Very flat feel. It is drinkable, but I don't think I will repeat.
