BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Urban Chestnut Brewing Company - Midtown Brewery & Biergarten
Missouri, United States
urbanchestnut.com

Style: German Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
This “export” style lager, brewed for our annual Oktoberfest celebration, is malty yet well balanced like the bier traditionally served at Oktoberfest in Munich. However, our Festbier has a tale/tail of its own–Oachkatzlschwoaf (pronounced “o-cat-zel-schwof”) translated is “tail of a squirrel”…just a little Bavarian humor.

Poured into a snifter. A crystal-clear amber color with a thick and long-lasting white head. Rich, bready and doughy aroma punctuated with floral hops. The taste was also rich - sweet bready malt flavor that was as bright as I have experienced. Floral and lemony hop bitterness in perfect balance. Clean and lively. One of the best in this style I have sampled.

One of my favorites for Oktoberfests. Pours a nice dark carmel with a slight creamy head that goes away fairly quickly. Some lacing but not long lasting. Nice carbonation with a smooth feel. Rich flavor with a hint of sweetness, but more malt driven. Easy to drink and very satisfying. Poured from 16 oz can into tulip glass.

Pours golden amber in color. I got a nice frothy head on top. On the nose, you’ll get some nice malt, roasted and sweet, but not overly sweet. I’m not getting the floral as much as I was told. On the palate, it is nicely carbonated, medium-to-full body in the mouth and a smooth and creamy.

Really nice domestic effort here... Super creamy feel to this and it's more toasty than sweet. I usually like my Fest beers on the paler side (see Weihenstephaner) but this this beer isn't overly sweet like many of the darker Fest beers are... I swear I get a little apple out of this at times. I really like the fact that it's not too sweet... I'm an Urban Chestnut fan as I think they make really good authentic German beers and this is no exception... I would recommend this to someone who is looking for something a little maltier but without all of the usual domestic sweetness that one finds in American offerings.
