Full Sail LTD 07 Oktoberfest Lager

CIMG7995

This is the 7th recipe in the Full Sail LTD Lager Series. I love these beers. Full Sail has really transitioned to more of a lager brewery, and that’s a good thing. We have an Oktoberfest beer today, that features Two-row Pale, Vienna, Caramel, and imported roasted Munich malts, with Saaz and Sterling hops. A little German, a little American, and hopefully more than a little delicious.

Stats;
Märzen. 5.7% ABV. 26 IBUs. Oregon. Available September-October.

Dark caramel color. Lovely head when poured down the middle. It fades to a whisper of white on the top of the beer. A few small streams of carbonation are visable.

Lots of caramel and vanilla on the nose. Some roasted nuts in here, as well. I’m even getting a little bit of grape jelly.

Mouthfeel is actually surprising. It’s a medium body with a nice crispness from the carbonation. I was really expecting a thin body here, but they hit the nail on this one.

Lovely maltiness, with caramel and vanilla. Hints of bready-ness and a beautiful finish that’s just has just a hair of sweetness and a grainy, vanilla flavor.

Really damn good beer. The best lager they’ve had for awhile and one you have to seek out before it goes away. 90 points.
