Review: Left Hand Oktoberfest

Left Hand OktoberfestLeft Hand’s contribution to the season is their own Oktoberfest Marzen Lager. I really do enjoy Left Hand brews, but I felt like the Oktoberfest was a bit of a letdown. It just didn’t have the “oomph” I was looking for in this style of beer.

The beer poured a deep copper color and the head was plentiful but settled quickly.You can see the thin layer of head in the photo.

The aroma presented a little yeasty with definite overtones of malt. The beer had a nice taste of toasted malt and didn’t linger long. It wasn’t bitter at all.

If you’re looking for a nice, drinkable Oktoberfest, Left Hand won’t disappoint. It’s an easily sessionable, crisp fall lager.

If you’re looking for something more, I would look elsewhere.
