Ironhill Oktoberfest Beers
Märzen – Oktoberfest Exclusive at Bangalore, Vizag & Vijayawada
Märzen is a traditional beer style that is served at the Oktoberfest in Munich. It is a malty German amber lager with a clean, rich, toasty and bready flavours. With a clean lager fermentation profile, Märzen is highly crushable and is meant for drinking in sessions.
Ironhill’s Märzen is an attempt on traditional Bavarian Oktoberfest lager which has a gorgeous orange to copper colour. It is rich in malt character with a balance of clean hop bitterness. Hints of bread, biscuit, toast and caramel-like malt flavours make up for a highly drinkable fest lager. Its alcohol content is slightly higher than the usual lagers and clocks in at 6%. Märzen is only available for Oktoberfest in Ironhill Bangalore, Ironhill Vizag and Vijayawada outlets.
Altbier is a well-balanced, malty, clean and highly attenuated German beer. It has a brilliant clarity and showcases a bright amber to copper colour. It’s slightly bitter yet malty with low fruity esters coming through. The hop aroma is relatively low and finishes medium dry.
Ironhill’s Altbier is complex and grainy with copper to dark brown colour. With subtle fruity esters, rich malt character, it has a nice rounded soft and caramelly finish. Despite being full of flavour, Altbier is light-bodied enough to be consumed as a session beer and peaks just at 5% ABV. Altbier is only pouring in the Ironhill Bangalore outlet for the Oktoberfest.
Outside of their festival beer line-up, Ironhill has also experimented with a SMaSH ale which is essentially a single malt and single hop beer. It is pale gold in colour and has a slightly hazy appearance with a dense foam on top.
Smash Ale features floral and fruity aromas from their unique hop selection. It has a gentle note of honey derived from the malt. A smooth and easy hoppy ale with subtle bitterness lingering into the finish. ABV: 5.5%. If you want to try the Smash Ale, it is only available in Ironhill Hyderabad and not part of the Oktoberfest line-up.
Oktoberfest Exclusive Food Menu
While beer may be the highlight of any Oktoberfest, I have to say, if you leave without sampling Oktoberfest food, you have done it all wrong. Well, without exaggerating, Oktoberfest food is some of the most satisfying, indulgent grub you’ll ever experience. The food choice at Ironhill’s Oktoberfest is staggering. They have a wide selection of Pretzels along with an array of sauces and Sauerkraut as a side. While you guzzle litres of beer, you would want to make sure you’re not feeling a little peckish.
