Octoberfests seem to me to usually be in the 5.5% abv range. This one is 7.1 and tastes great! Yay Summit!

A little bit of spice, but nothing major. Honestly, the one attribute to this beer that stood out to me the most was the relatively high carbonation. Other than that, there isn't really anything unique about this.

This is a sweet caramelly malt driven märzen without too much hop presence. However for being a sweeter example of the style it is pretty tasty. I enjoyed it more than most Summit beers I've tried.

Good märzen, pretty dry, but still malty and somewhat complex than its compatriots.

This beer pours a light amber with a nice white head. The aromas of caramel, cotton candy, crackers, and roast vegetables rise of the beer. The flavor leads with a bubblegum like sweetness, tempered by a balanced fruity bitterness and cracker finish. The mouthfeel is rich but not overpoweringly so. This is an awesome oktoberfest, and while it stays within the tradition framework, it explores just enough to create and amazing flavor.

It is kind of intense and strong flavor with bitter taste.... for all those who like strong this would be one of your bucket list try it it good...this is good compared with the taste of Samuel Adams October fest
