Here’s a press release from Marshall:
TULSA — Marshall Brewing Co., known for producing fresh German-style lagers in addition to American craft beers, will offer four limited-release beers available only at 2013 Tulsa Oktoberfest. Tulsa Oktoberfest will be held Oct. 17-20 on the west bank of the Arkansas River at 2100 S Jackson Ave.
“In our fourth year participating in Tulsa Oktoberfest, we will be showcasing the range of brewmaster Eric Marshall,” states Marshall Brewing director of sales and marketing, Wes Alexander.
For 2013, Marshall Brewing and Fassler Hall have combined to offer only Marshall beers in Fassler Hall Stammtisch Zelt, located directly to the north of the main tent. On draft will be Marshall’s Oktoberfest Lager, flagship Atlas IPA, McNellie’s Pub Ale, and Sundown Wheat. In addition Marshall will offer four German-style beers only available at Oktoberfest.
-Munich-style Dunkel was fermented using our German lager yeast, yielding a smooth but complex deep copper beer with hints of nuts and caramel. Mt. Hood hops have been used sparingly to provide balance for the sweetness of Munich, Pils and Vienna malts. A medium mouthfeel and lower ABV produce a smooth lager that is highly quaffable.
-Onesie Smash Pils is a single-malt and single-hop pilsner featuring traditional Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner malt, and German Saphir hops. Onesie is clean and crisp with a light citrus aroma and a dry hoppy finish.
-Altbier: Alt translates to “old,” a tribute to the age of brewing before the emergence of lagers in the 16th century. Altbier is fermented using a traditional German ale yeast which produces clean and crisp flavors with a mellow fruit-like undertone. This deep copper-colored ale is accentuated by a complex malt profile and a rich Noble Hop character.
-Kolsch is a traditional German ale style made famous in the city of Cologne. Kolsch is a light, straw-colored ale highlighted by a clean, fruity yeast character. Hop aroma and bitterness are very low, producing a palate pleasing softness.
