BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Traditionally brewed in March just before brewing was banned for the Summer, Märzenbiers are malty, smooth, clean, and rich lagers that have a distinctive malt backbone and complexity for a style that can be so understated. Brewed with German Munich and Pilsen malts as well as German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops, this distinctive brew is conditioned at cold lagering temperatures for five months; some things you just can’t rush. This is a true Oktoberfest offering, one that is prominently featured during our Oktoberfest celebration at the brewery, and at 5.2% ABV it’s a crisp, smooth, and easy to drink beer perfect for the chilly Fall nights ahead.

22 oz bottle. Clear honey brown body with a thick white head. Great lacing and retention. Aromas of toasted malt, bread, caramel and toffee. Flavors are lots of semi-sweet caramel malt, a bit of roast, dough and a touch of nuttiness. A really fantastic beer, I very much enjoyed this.

I like this beer it was very good.
Pours a rich copper with a tall beige head.
Smells malty and bready and the taste is similar with a big biscuit malt taste.
