"Chromato" is an Oktoberfest Style beer "with a twist" . It is named after the Chromatogram generated by the CMSC analysis. Instead of using the traditional lagering yeast, it uses an ale yeast, giving it a more complex and robust flavour. Vienna malts bring a toasty sweetness which creates a smooth, warming and delicious beer.
Oktoberfest is a German festival dating from 1810, and Oktoberfestbiers are the beers that have been served at the festival since 1818, and are supplied by 6 breweries: Spaten, Lowenbrau, Augustiner, Hofbrau, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr.Traditionally Oktoberfestbiers were the lagers of around 5.5 to 6 abv called Marzen - brewed in March and allowed to ferment slowly during the summer months.Originally these would have been dark lagers, but from 1872 a strong March brewed version of an amber-red Vienna lager made by Josef Sedlmayr became the favourite Oktoberfestbier.
