Appearance is deep amber/light brown, clear, with ruby highlights and a medium white foam cap. Aroma is all bready and caramel malt, with no noticeable hop or yeast character. Taste is bready, toasty, and rich caramel with light plum and raisin character. High mineral content of the water creates a slight tang and sharper bitterness, which balances the rich malt. Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp carbonation. Finishes with a bready note on the tinge that lingers longer than the hop bitterness.

Bottle from Trevor. Pours brown with tan hues, rimming white head. Caramel and corn nose, slight grass. Lots of caramel and brown sugar, little hop flavor, but enough to balance. Nice.

Transfer from BA review on 9-20-13- Served on tap in a 1 L stein Appearance – The beer is served a deep amber-reddish color with a small fizzy white head. The head has a decent retention however, slowly fading over time to leave a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is rather sweet overall with a decently strong caramel and buttery toffee smell. Mixed with these aromas are a good deal of a bready smells with notes of toasted malt and some spice aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste –The taste begins with a sweet caramel and lightly toasted malt flavor. As the flavor moves forward some notes of lighter fruits and some nut comes to the tongue. The sweet taste intensifies in caramel flavor and is complemented by some toffee. Spice flavors of some cinnamon and nutmeg come to the tongue more toward the end and are joined by a lighter hop taste of some citrus and herb and an increase in the roasted malt flavor, leaving a pleasant and smooth sweet and lightly roasted flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are fitting for the style making for a nice easy drinking but well supported Oktoberfest. Overall – A rather enjoyable and tasty Oktoberfest with a nice sweet and decently roasted taste. Paulaner is a classic brewery for a reason; they make good stuff.

On draught at Belmont Station, in a liter stein. Clear dark amber color. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, corn, grass, and apple. Taste is similar to aroma, with more grassy hop notes to balance the maltiness. Pleasing märzen.

On tap at the Coney. Clean aroma, malty with some biscuit. Light neutral fruit and mild hop character. Coppery amber clear with off white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts moderately malty with light biscuit and nice level of noble hops. Clean sweet finish with smooth nutty after. Clean and refreshing.
