Despite being a big, bold beer with rich, complex toasted malt type flavours, this limited release Oktoberfest brew is still very easy on the palate and can be consumed in large quantities. The use of special German malts like Vienna and Munich, and the moderate hop bitterness from the German hops, make it a perfect expression of the Bavarian brewing tradition.
- Amber brown in colour
- Medium off-white head
- Light toasted malt aroma with a layered malt flavour and a dry finish
Rob Heyns' Tasting Notes:
November 2014 - There tends to be an overlap between Oktoberfest and Marzen beers. The overriding similarity is that they are brewed for festival times, are big, bold, sweet, higher in alcohol and have rich, complex toasted malt type flavours. Despite it being so big and flavoursome, this limited release beer is very easy on the palate and can be consumed in large quantities.
- Alcohol by volume: 6.1%
- Volume per bottle: 440ml
