Dan is full into Oktoberfest beers care of Untappd/Half Time, continuing with another Märzen, Live Oak Brewing Oaktoberfest.
INGREDIENTS: All German malt and hops (double-decocted)
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft (Limited)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.
Burnt orange/amber with a beautiful, white head.
Malt forward with some sweentess with the characteristic noble hop notes in the earthy and herbal realm.
Very close to its German counterparts, with a nice balance between the hop presence and malt sweetness.
The malt sweetness is pleasant and not too heavy, allowing easy quaffability.
Super accessible märzen here, as I could see myself putting liters back if I was in Austin at the time of this recording. Obviously, German beer hall fare for sure, but you could go many ways with this style for sure. Prost!
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
