2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. As "Hacker-Pschorr Original Oktoberfest Amber Marzen". Clear amber. Aroma of malt, a bit of caramel and cardboard. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of caramel, a hint of toast, oxidation and a finish with a bitterish note. Light to medium-bodied. Best before 5/14, but not fresh enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 bottle shared with me at a family gathering. The pour is clear copper brown with a smallish light tan head. The aroma is softly sweet caramel malt, hint of grassy bitterness. The taste is mostly the sweet caramel malt, clean and decently fresh, followed up with the subdued dry grass bitterness, and a touch of chemical in the longish finish. The palate is light to medium bodied, softer carbonation and the somewhat dirty finish.

I love me some Oktoberfest beers and this one is not to be passed up. HP’s dunkel weiss remains my favorite offering from the classic brewery, but come September you should pick one of these up. Best with baked chicken and pretzels (duh).

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance superb. Great lacing - head retention a little disappointing (may be glass). A very enjoyable beer - a beer that you could have more than one.
