Beer Spotlight | Free State Octoberfest

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION:

Oktoberfest is one of the most celebrated traditions in German culture. And though Kansas may be a long way from Munich, we share the sentiment. Our Octoberfest was only the second specialty beer we ever brewed, and the original batch was first tasted back in 1989.

To this day, it continues to be one of our most popular brews, with folks seeking it out both at the brewpub and on the shelves of their local liquor stores.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Pours a clear cooper color with a fluffy white head.

Aroma: Roasted Malt and Doughy Bread.

Taste: Malt character, but not as significant as the nose. Residual sugar that adds a bit of sweetness. Hops provide just enough bite.

Mouthfeel: Subtle carbonation, round, smooth, with a clean finish.

Overall: A quality malt forward lager that is an excellent example of the style.
