Style: German Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Flagship's autumn seasonal combines two classic German beer styles. Roggenbier is a German ale brewed with rye grain. Märzenbier, also known as Oktoberfest for the Munich beer festival, is a full-flavored beer that marks the season. We give you Flagship Roggenfest! This malty brew uses Vienna and Munich varieties of malted barley that are complemented with German malted rye and German chocolate rye. Bavarian noble hops balance the beer with a mild bitterness and soft floral aroma. The result is a full-bodied dark copper colored ale with a smooth texture and spicy-like characteristic from the rye malt. Grab some bratwurst or a pretzel and enjoy a Roggenfest before the all the leaves fall.

Poured a dark orange-brown body with decent head and lace. Aroma is grainy, lager-dry, touch of caramel-like malts in smell as well. Medium-bodied, taste follows aroma with a grainy, dry hoppiness mixed with a bevy of maltiness that gives off a little sweetness and has an easy finish.

Pours a brownish color with honey edges and a huge head that was at least two fingers high. The nose has hearty bready notes as well as a spicy rye character. The flavor follows the nose with maltiness upfront and a nice hop bitterness on the finish that is perfect and definitely not over the top.

This offering makes for an interesting hybrid style. A perfect beer for the first day of autumn.

Soft mouthfeel. Caramel, toffee, and bready malts fill out the mouthfeel.

Herbal hop presence. Rye is noticeable when I look for it, bringing subtle spice.
