I’ve said many times in these pages that I don’t like beer, but I’m trying, fam. I’m trying to broaden my palate, and I think I’ve determined that I like lagers. I do like Negra Modelo, and I just found another lager that I enjoyed: Golden Road Brewing’s Oktoberfest Märzen.
It’s one of the first beers to come from their Anaheim location, and it’s GOOD. Märzens are apparently a Bavarian lager—I say “apparently” because I have no idea what the hell I’m talking about when I talk beer. But I know good, and Golden Road’s take is great: light, malty, and with a sweet finish. I got drunk off of it when my team recently lost at the first-ever OC Weekly/Play Pop Quiz trivia tournament, whose finals were at Golden Road’s upcoming brewhouse in Anaheim. Gracias for hosting us, for helping us with the prizes, and for the Märzen. And for everyone else: it’s available for a limited time only, if it’s not already done. If it is? Drink anything else.
