BEER INFO

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.

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis

Appearance - Clear copper colour with an average size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, hay/straw/grass

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and light hops. There is also some tea, straw/hay and a grassiness.

Overall - Not my favourite style, but a pretty decent effort. Not something I'd seek out again, but worth a try.
