Brilliant old gold color. Toasty, savory aromas and flavors of stewed okra and corn, rye crisp, honey buttered sourdough nut toast, and hint of cardboard with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dryish medium body and a cheery finish revealing accents of apple-lemon yogurt, pear salad, and chocolate bar wrapper finish. An earthy, savory offering for the table.

Marzen-Octoberfest

Märzen beers are gold to dark amber in color and range from 5-6.5% in alcohol. These beers are characterized by a fuller-body, sweet toasted and toffee malt flavors and subtle hop character. These beers are malt-forward with flavors and aromas derived from Munich and Vienna malts. Closely related to the Vienna style, märzen-style lagers were originally brewed by Bavarian brewers in March to last through the fall. First officially introduced by Spaten Brewery at the 1841 Oktoberfest, märzen style beers have been linked to this celebration ever since. With only a few select breweries legally permitted to use the term Oktoberfest in Germany, the term “Octoberfest” has been adopted by US craft brewers for märzen style seasonal releases that coincide with the German festival. Noteworthy examples of this style included: Capital Oktoberfest, Great Lake Octoberfest, Spaten Oktoberfest and Ayinger Oktoberfest-Märzen.
