Bottle. Average white head over a brilliantly clear golden body. Spicey floral aroma, with a hint of applejuide like sweetness. A spicey-buttery taste, finishing with a touch of malt sweetness. Light bodied

Golden blond, small head, lots of carbonation. Hoppy aroma, also grain and barley. It’s mediumbodied, slightly hoppy, a bit hoppy and a bit sweeter than a pilsner. Normal finish, NIce beer but not so special to me.

Light and easy to drink. Slight amount of hoppiness, light malt flavors. Good festival beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Arden Wines. Fizzing gold under a high white bloom. But it is in a Schneider Weisse trumpet. Sweetcorn relish, aspirin and mown grass aroma; blossomy hop and Munich biscuit once the head has gone. Papery and slick with a sprinkle of sherbet. Noble hops like pencil shavings, lemon curd on cardboard, breadstick dipped in honey. Disturbing Disprin-like aftertaste. Hops coniferous but industrial, malts bready but unassertive. Drab and efficient. Sorry.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is currently available in Australia as the "Oktoberfest Bier to go" with a 1 litre can inside a branded Stein glass. It pours clear bright golden with a substantial foamy white head that lasts for several minutes. The nose is grainy malts with sweetcorn and subtle grassy/citrus hops. Flavours are similar with a light-medium body and thin mouthfeel with low carbonation providing very easy sessionability (ie. the whole point of this beer). It is a good easy drinking beer but surely over-rated because of the "good times" associated with the consumption of it. At a well hidden 6%ABV, I can see why there are so many headaches in Munich every October!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow, completely clear, with a rather big white head. Good head retention and nice lacings.
Light malts, white bread and a fresh mild herbal hop note in the nose.
The taste is rather sweet with malts and toast up front. Light but fresh grassy and herbal hop notes. The finish has some bitterness to it, a a quick hop flare and some malts. Clean and refreshing with decent flavors.
Moderate to light body, quite a lot of carbonation.
A decent beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle- pours a faint amber color, lighter than the other oktoberfest beers I’ve drank, it seemed a bit spent, nice white head though. The aroma was very promising very creamy and malty with light fruity tones. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t do the aroma justice, quite bland and slightly metallic, in my opinion lacks the maltiness of the other brews. I’ll stick to the Augustiner or Spaten tent.....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear, pale gold with a bubbly white head that quickly shrinks to a ring around the top. Light aroma is grainy and grassy with hints of caramel and herbs. Flavour is also light and very similar to the aroma: malt and some grassy, herbal hoppiness stand out with subtle citrus and caramel also. Fairly light bodied with a lingering bittersweet finish. Pretty good marzen.
