Oktoberwest

Märzen

Brewed in collaboration with beer aficionado Mellissa Cole, Oktoberwest is Westerham Brewery’s nod to the traditional Bavarian Oktoberfest Märzen beer.

Oktoberwest is an elegant, malty German Märzen amber lager with a clean, rich, toasty and bready malt flavour, restrained bitterness, and a dry finish that encourages another drink. The overall malt impression is soft, elegant, and complex, with a rich aftertaste that is never cloying or heavy.

We brewed this beer with Pilsner malt, Caramalt, Munich and Vienna malt. This selection of malts ensures a clean flavour profile while giving a nod to the more traditional beers used to celebrate Oktoberfest in years gone by before lighter lagers took over as a mainstay of the celebrations. We used noble German varieties of hops, for a moderate and slightly spicy bitterness.

Coming in at 5.6% ABV, the Noble Hops do not overpower the malt base, showing off the true qualities of the traditional malts which were historically used in this festive beverage.
