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.

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle poured 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 around
S: 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 well done. 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!

On draft for Octoberfest 2014 with Kelly. Light brown with off white head and lacing. Warm sweet fresh baked bread with some spice in the background... Nice one.

Poured from 330 ml bottle. Lightly hazy, medium amber with an off-white head and a decent amount of fine lacing. Aroma of caramel, bread and a little nuttiness. Taste of toasted malt, caramel, plums and raisins. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I actually meant to rate the Oktoberfest Weisn brew which is much more enjoyable than this plain brew. The marzen variety is akin to drinking water. However, the Weisn variety is a pretty enjoyable beer.

Pours a clear copper with a thin head. Malty aroma with some yeastiness. Flavor is heavy in the malts as expected and a bit creamy as well. Definitely an easy drinker and another solid offering from paulaner.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, brownish-amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma is a little nutty with some faint caramel. It has a light body with watery texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a quick, lightly flavored finish.
