Max Oktoberfest

2008 version sampled 11/7/08.
Simple, clear and orangey/red/mid-brown pour with minimal head and lace. In fact, carbonation this low reminds me of a cask ale (a good thing).
This brew pretty much nails the style nicely. Good, sweet malts are supported with some subtle bitternes for balance. Nicely rounded in the mouth (which I always feel is an important feature of the Marzen type brews). According to the blurb this was brewed in the taditonal style in as much as it was made in March and then lagered until October. It shows. Nice caramel finish rounds the beer out rather well.
One of the better brews that Max does, I’d visit it again with pleasure.
