About This Beer
Now that we’ve turned the corner on the ‘dog days of summer,’ fall is right around the corner. And that means football, horror movies, and Oktoberfest!
Elder Pine is anxiously anticipating the best time of the year with their take on one of the most consumed beer styles during Oktoberfest. The craft crew has combined American oak with German brewing for their Autumn Awaits Märzen.
By lagering their concoction in American Oak foeders for three months, warm layers of barrel fold into the beer’s malty backbone for a unique sip that balances sweet notes with earthy nuance. The biscuity, bread crust flavor acts as a vessel that carries rich raisin, mixed nuts, and caramelization through the end of each gulp.
Malty Sweet Oaky Bready Chuggable
the oak aging makes it taste like I’m licking a wooden dock
A little too carbonated.
Pretty color but not the best.
Best Oktoberfest beer I have ever had! 🍻 Strong oak flavor balances great with the amber flavor
Malt has notes of whiskey
one of the best beers I’ve ever had
malt…bread….cracker…other grain things
Aging in oak fœders pushes this Märzen right to the edge of over-the-topness. Rich and complex, it lacks a Märzen’s refreshing qualities and drinks almost like a blend of an ESB and a bock, with the slightest hint of funk.

Light caramel and oak notes in the aroma. Taste follows aroma with the caramel maltiness a bit more forward. Finishes just a touch dry. Really like this take on a Marzen.
Creamy head, black bread aroma with a hint of raisins, rich malt taste with caramel and oak notes.
quite nice - lite
my wife loved this one!
