Whats to say? Its a pretty decent Oktoberfest. Comes in the bigger 500ml bombers, and is pretty amiable all around.

Rich flavored amber style Oktoberfest beer. Uniques flavors that made this a unique and pleasent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious - dark amber body and sweet caramel aroma. Strong presence of hops make it crisp, dry and refreshing with almost a Pilsener-like finish. Kind of mild compared to other Oktoberfest brews I’ve had, but a great brew all the same.

Her appearance is average, ruby orange in color, she failed to shave her pits. Her taste includes a slight hint of pumpkin carmel...Her snatch is a little bland...Overall she is solid.

Just had my first taste of this the other night. Again this begs the question, why o why can’t American breweries produce a beer as good as this? With the exception of some of the USA micro-brewerys such as Dogfish, American mass produced beers, taste like they were brewed by passing the ingredients through the urinary passage of a skunk.

I’ve had this beer in Germany, and I’ve had it here a few times. This most recent batch (obtained in 2011) was not up to par with others I have had.
Very small head that didn’t last long. No nose to speak of, except for some licorice-like notes.
Poor body. Very bubbly, almost irritating on the tongue. Flavor was all of burnt malt, no hops at all. My guess is that this must be from a batch that didn’t travel well, because Hacker-Pschorr beers are generally very, very good.

Amber color (very dark) and high foam with median duration. Caramel and hopped aroma. Balanced flavor (medium roasted malt, hops, alcohol and sweet). An excellent Marzen and ready for the Oktoberfest

To truly appriciate this beer, you kind of need a salty first full sausage or some other saline rich foods. It is beacuse there is such a precise balance hiding behind those sweet malts up front. Nothing is pushed forward with out an equally forceful counter step, whther it is the dry body that follows the caramal sweet nose, or the strong finishing note following the surprisingly light-footed body. I wonder why the American craft versions rate higher than this precisely crafted version. They show off more I guess. This is a beer on a lie detector: nothing but the truth.
