Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, CA; Mills River, NC

Brewed in collaboration with Mahrs Brau of Bamberg, Germany, this authentic and malty Oktoberfest lager is deep golden and balanced by German-grown Record hops.

6% ABV

Clear gold in color with a very light hint of apple juice on the nose.  A sweet Oktoberfest offering, but the least sweet we have sampled thus far.  Also, this offering has more bitterness than the others.  Burnt aftertaste is not as obtrusive as in other of the same style.  Our top pick for Oktoberfest biers thus far!

Would we have it again?  Nah…
