OKTOBERFEST BIER - 5.7% ABV - 355ML CAN
Nonbe 飲兵衛 (meaning: to drink) represents our obsessive attempt to emulate older iterations of Oktoberfest bier brewed for the two week-long celebration that shares the style's name. Brewed with Vienna and Munich malts and Tettnanger hops, Nonbe expresses a piquant floral noble hop character before a luxurious cascade of malt notes begin to proliferate: toasted bread crust, caramel, molasses, and pecan. The drink's texture is round and opulent, showcasing the malt richness hinted at in the aroma with an added suggestion of maple sap; unsweetened and delightful. The finish, softened and refined by a long cold maturation, is the exclamation point on a lager that has us reaching for the nearest litre stein.
