This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

Poured from bottle, clear gold with thin head. Aroma mild with notes of hay/grass and slightly of metal. Taste is mild and with notes of light toast, grass and herbs. Slight bitterness in the finish. More "normal" pils than oktober beer.

I did not think that it had a strong distinct "octoberfest" flavor. A little malty and acidic. Not to harsh and easy to drink. There are much better oktoberfests.

500ml bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Clear golden pour with fast diminishing head. A malty start with a sweet Helles finish. OK.

50cl bottle shared. Pours pale golden with one finger of white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is sweet malts and light vegetal notes of german hops. Taste is similar, quite sweet with almost no bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, light to medium carbonation.

Mjp12 (671) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Malty aromas, and sweet malty taste, low levels of carbonation. Finish is too sweet for me.

Joakgust (1091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, herbs, hay and bread. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, herbs, citrus and bread. Needs to be more malty to be a märzen.

"this was my favorite marzen for a while way back in the day...just a touch behind Paulaner and Ayinger as of now. nice balance and pretty well done, if a little underwhelming..."

Bottle @ Café Brecht, Amsterdam. Clear yellow pour, little head. Malty, cara-sweet, balanced. Not really my thing, but it is that time.
