Dan cracks open the third beer from the Untappd/Half Time Octoberfest box. This time, it’s Gretel from Foundation Brewing.
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 with a fluffy, white head.
Bread with a hint of toasted bread.
Biscuits and breadsticks with an earthy/herbal noble hop presence.
Lighter mouthfeel and balanced on the palate with the carbonation keep things smooth.
Another American-made märzen that is pretty true to style. I hope that folks in Portland had a ton of this up there this season. Once again, German beer hall fare and more on the pairing front. Prost!
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
