Notes / Commercial Description:
This classic German-style lager is brewed once annually for service in mid-September. It has big malt flavor from imported German Vienna and Munich malts with just enough German Hallertauer hops to balance the sweet character of the beer. This is a rich, full-bodied lager is a great treat for any Oktoberfest celebration.

12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 8/10/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of honey, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
