Manchester Union Lager launch limited edition ‘Oktober’ Festbier

With Oktoberfest in full swing and everyone on the hunt for the best lager of the season, Manchester Union Brewery has now launched its limited edition Oktoberfest beer – Oktober.

The new limited edition lager, is a modern twist on the classic Festbier and is only around for a short amount of time to celebrate the annual beer festival.

The seasonal lager is a 6% malt-forward and bready golden lager with a rich body from extended decoction mash. The aroma is light caramel with honey, backed up with lots of Saaz hops and bitterness for maximum refreshment.

Manchester Union Brewery is Manchester’s first and only dedicated craft lager brewery, and uses traditional central European lager brewing techniques paired with Mancunion swagger to create a unique legacy beer that the people of Manchester can be proud to call their own!

With delivery included, the new limited edition bottles (500ml) come to £48.50 for a pack of 12. The bottles can be purchased from the Manchester Union website here.

Manchester Union Lager

Manchester Union Lager is brewed using a technique called decoction mashing, where a proportion of the mash is moved from tank to tank using really powerful pumps and heating up to 100 degrees. This extra step releases melanoidin due to the Maillard reaction, which is the same reaction that happens when browning meat or toasting bread. It also releases a small but pleasing amount of tannins which cannot be replicated through substitute methods.It gives the beer a big body and silky mouthfeel without it being too sweet.
