Notes / Commercial Description:
A classic German-style Oktoberfest beer that goes down smooth with a pleasant, toasty malt flavor. 100% German malts create a supple and flavorful base for this traditional Oktoberfest lager. Our 2015 version is brewed with a hop called Hallertau Gold, grown on only one farm in the whole of Bavaria to deliver a hop profile which is at the same time both classic and unique.

Pours a copper color with verry little head. Nice crisp leveraged feel. Smell is toasty bread. Taste is sweet caramel with light bitterness on finish. Nice festbier.

Served from a 12 oz can. Not a bad Oktoberfest. It was a bit on the sweet side - almost cloying, but not quite. It's definitely worth trying, if you're into the style.

Clear copper body with a light tan, smooth head, no lace. Nose and taste are huge on the toasty maltiness, just like bread crust. The nose has a light herbal note and the taste interprets this as a bit of bitterness. Very dry. The body is fairly light with appropriate carbonation, goes down very easily and refreshingly.
This was a great marzen, not because of the wonderful flavor, but because the flavor was firm yet simple and mild enough to quaff. This will never be in my top 5 styles, but as far as it goes this was a highlight.
