Bottle gifted by a buddy with too much beer. Thanks Jim. The best beer is free beer, especially if I feel like rating a couple, and it’s unrated to me. Totally drinkable. Light caramel and maybe even to a bit of toffee, it’s so smooth and drinkable. This is not the beer to tell Junior to drink so he hates beer for a few more beers. Junior will say "Thank you Sir, may I have another. Beats a Bud any day.

330ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium copper with a half finger white head. While the lacing is not really there, head retention is good. Aroma has caramel and toast along with a healthy shot of wet glass. Very true to the style. The flavor doubles down on the attributes in the aroma with a very nice biscuity malt character and awesome grassy hop flavors. Moderate bitterness balances out the malty sweetness and gives this great drinkability. Overall, one of the better German Marzens available in the U.S. One of the standards of the style.

Nice mellow Marzen. A hint of banana provides a sort of ’sheen’ to the dry malt flavor.

Copper colored brew that started with head but within seconds it fell down to a lace. Like a soda would do. Smells of roasted malt and tastes of roasted malt. Perfectly balanced to make it very chuggable. If I had a keg of this you could bet I would pull out my great big dimpled mug and fill it full many times till I was puking or falling down or both. Have been doing some comparisons on Oktoberfest brews this month and this is my #2 pick. Nice thing that the price tag is not over the top for an import.

Chadski4 (160) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Malt all the way for both nose and taste. Very nice amber color with a thin bubbly off-white head. Some very subtle hints of toffee in the oily aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a big white creamy bubbled head. Good retention. A small layer remains for a moment and many lacings are formed and left aroundS: Very grainy in the nose. Plenty of Lager yeasts which makes it really bready too. Notes of flowery hops. T: A simple Lager which is, at the same time, extremely balanced and easy to drink. Slightly sweet upfront. Lots of grains. Really bready. I little bit metallic. Mild but nice hops bitterness. M: Light body and good carbonation. Excellent grainy aftertaste. O: Excellent drinkability. A perfect German session Lager. Paulaner quality. Prost! [ BA Review @ 10/13/2012 ]
