Capital Brewery – Oktoberfest

RECOGNIZABLE AS A MÄRZEN, but distinctly American in its pronounced, familiar, faintly toasted malts in the middle and a relatively notable hop spike (Liberty) towards the end. Also and more metallic finish and a bit lighter in the body than looked for, maybe cleaving a little closer to the milder Wisconsin tradition of lager brewing than the robust German precedent.
