4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Never heard of Ottenbrau until last week. I’m impressed. Clear copper body with a thick white head. Foamy and laces well. Very lively carbonation. Looks amazing. Smell is of bread, caramel, and nuts. Taste is sweet caramel malt at first then finishes with a slight citrus hop bite. Carbonated buttery mouthfeel but not overdone. Very good balance and enjoyable Marzen! Prost!

Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass deep golden-copper coloured. Nice head. Starts very spicy, a bit metallically at the beginning. Hoppy background. Finish again spicy, modest sourish. Very drinkable. Good beer!
