BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company
Wisconsin, United States

Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
“O'zapft is!” It is tapped, indeed. Oktoberfest, arguably the greatest festival in the world and the beer that bears its name, was born from a Bavarian royal wedding celebration. We’re paying homage to that celebration with a bolder, toastier take on an Oktoberfestbier that can only be described as “Über.” With a tawny orange hue, toasted malts and spicy hops, our Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest is then dry-hopped for added hop complexity.

This beer is a solid offering from leinies. It looks fantastic with a vibrant autumn hued copper color. Flavor profile is typical oktoberfest, but hoppier. Caramel and biscuit with a nice spicy and earthy hop profile. Has an orange citrus flavor as well. A touch of toasted malts.

Clean and crisp. Larger bodied. Very easy to drink for the abv.

Fairly tasty. Well carbonated. Nothing overpowering. I don't think I would pay for them but would definitely drink one if offered for free.
