Brewed by:
Left Hand Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is no festivus for the restivus, on the contrary, we start brewing in the spring and it takes a full two months to reach lagered perfection. Biscuity, malty goodness dominates upfront while the noble pedigree hops lend a properly spicy, dry finish.

Clear deep golden color with ok head and lacing. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is sweet malt and bread with possibly some toasted almond. Finish is pretty clean with a bit of bitterness from what I would guess is the hops. Pretty balanced brew !!

A: Deep and rich copper. Brilliant clarity. Slight head. Fades quick (4/5)

S: Toffee and treacle. Very alluring malt smell. Subtly spicy. Strong caramel. Some fruity bubblegum. I think this may have too much that takes away from simple maltiness. (3.75/5).

M: Superbly smooth and easy to drink. Medium bodied. Semi-dry finish. Light carbonation. Some alcohol on finish (4.75/5).

T: Nice and sweet upfront. Caramel, toffee, and something like apple florality. Herbal hop flavor mid. Nice toasted biscuit throughout. Tastes like fall. As good as American Marzens get imho. (4.25/5).
