Description 

Here's our take on the classic Märzen Style Lager, for the original festival that celebrates beer - with beer. Our Oktoberfest goes well with sauerkraut, brauts and a pair of lederhosen. It has a rich body, smooth flavor and notes of sweet caramel malt that are like polka music to your mouth. So raise a glass with us and give a hearty, "Prost!"

This beer pours a beautiful brilliantly clear deep gold - almost light amber with the orangish tint that is typical of a Marzen. A medium head of tiny ivory-colored white bubbles fades slowly leaving a little Belgian lace. The initial aroma is bready with moderate toasty notes and just a bit of bread crusts with no hops and a very clean lager character. Toasty and bready characterize the flavor, again with a bit of bread crust, and just a little floral hop notes and just enough bitterness to offset the toasty malt. Very clean lagered flavor that showcases the toast with a medium body and moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is refined, creamy, and smooth, with a crisp finish. This is a very tasty beer that begs for bratwurst with mustard and sauerkraut, and had enough breadiness that you can hold the bun.
