This Oktoberfest beer recipe makes, in our slightly biased opinion, one of the best Oktoberfest beers out there! With a strong emphasis on the German malt flavor, it's sure to please anyone looking for a classic Oktoberfest beer. It is a copper-colored Lager that achieves that malt flavor with lots of Pilsner malt extract. The use of Caravienne and Caramunich malts contribute the copper color and a unique, subdued toffee/malt flavor. First-addition hops are Hallertauer, while finishing-hops are Czech Saaz.
