Burnt City’s Oktoberfest Märzen celebrates the wonderful German tradition as respectfully as possible. Fancy German malt and hops were used in this flavorful, quaffable amber lager. Malt notes are prominent, but the beer finishes dry. Hop character is subtle, adding a gentle floral aroma. Obviously Oktoberfest is best enjoyed at the end of September but if Burnt City is being honest Oktoberfest improves almost any social experience. It’s great at end-of-summer barbecues, Friday night karaoke and Saturday tailgating. But we know Oktoberfest is most appropriately poured into a liter stein, hoisted high in the air and chugged in unison with all fellow bar goers. Prost!
