If you’re a purist, Oktoberfest-Marzen will likely match your perceptions of what a German Oktoberfest beer should be like. It pours copper-colored with a magnificent off-white topping of suds. It smells malty and sweet. Flavor is rich and smooth. Sugary but not cloying. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with light carbonation. Whether you’re a German beer enthusiast or someone who’s just getting into foreign styles, Paulaner’s Marzen is an excellent choice.

A good lager. Plain taste but well balanced. Similar to paulaner helles but more tasty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Slightly hazy orange beer, creamy white head. Nose is caramel, nutty and toasty notes, caramel, and some grainy sourness as it warms. Flavor is malty, caramel, metallic and grainy sourness plus some hops. Dry notes in the finish. I’m not sure it’s supposed to be this sour, maybe I got a bad sample.

50cl on tap (as Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen) at Drink Baar, Tallinn. Clear copper coloured with a rather modest, off-white head. Malty and slightly bready aroma with hints of caramel, toasted malt and metal. Medium sweet with mild malty notes and a mild herbal bitterness in the finish. Fairly tasty, except for the metallic notes, but still quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a crystal clear brown color with a good white head. Aroma is caramel, sweet candy, light hops, molasses. Taste is caramel, malt, butter and toffee. Very drinkable beer, one that would be best sessioned in the fall. Very good, not a huge beer but very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown with a 1" beige head, waves of lace. Aroma of caramel malt. Taste is malt with caramel that glides into a carbonated swallow with a minimum of growth, then very light hops assure balance. Quite simple, but one of those brews I can enjoy as a go-to (no hop) beer any day of the week.
