Bavarian barley slow roasted, caramelized to a rich, red amber color combined with the purest spring waters from the Alps, exclusive yeast and the finest Hallertau hops.

’06 batch.Sweet roasted malt taste. Not much hops to balance the flavour. I pick up this brew every year,and every year it is more watery.30% of all beer brewed in Munich is consumed at the annual Octoberfest.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2003
Bottled. Thin off white head sits atop a coppery orange brew. Slightly carmel aroma with a very sweet malt upfront, almost sour yeastyness and a crisp Hallertau finish.

The longneck bottle pours a dark amber body with an average off white head that fades rapidly. The nose is heavy on the sweet, caramel malt side with a slight hazelnut-like aroma and mild hops. Palate entry is sweet, rounding out in the mid-palate with roasted Munich malts and some mild buttery nut flavors. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Finish is short-lived and lightly drying.

This lager pours clear and light amber in color. There is a small and quickly dissipating tan-colored head and a sweet malty nose. The initial palate is quite sweet, but rounds out nicely to a flavorful, caramelized malted barley and full-bodied mid-palate. I tasted notes of raisins and honey. The finish is appropriately drying but mild and not bitter. I would probably prefer more hops in the finish, but this is a classic Bavarian Märzen style Oktoberfest lager.

Bottle: drinkable , a bit watery though the malts were full and sweet. I would like to try this on tap.

jann3 (182) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Pours clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of malts and hint of caramel. Taste is sweetish too with notes of grain and caramel. Finushes with a hint of bitterness. Quite soft CO2. Smooth but slightly watery mouthfeel. (0,5 l bottle, best before 04/15).

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Amber clear pour with a ever so slight off white head that is quick to disappear. It is clear with slight carbonation. There is a grainy malt smoke flavor on nose for this light bodied marzen. There is a slight crisp bitterness on mouth along with a soft malt taste.

Bonster (180) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle with friends. Pours a burnt copper in color with a medium size off white head. Aroma is bready and malty. Flavors of toasted malt, honey, and a hint of fruit back up the minor hop presence in the finish.
