Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark copper color with beautiful clarity. The head starts off as a creamy, off-white color that’s about one finger high, but fades fairly quickly. S: This one is actually really nice aromatically. The malts are very rich in caramel, and even some chocolaty hints. After it opens up a bit, it develops some floral, grassy hop notes. Hell, I even notice a distant quality of allspice. Surprisingly deep for a marzen. T: There’s a definite hoppiness (in a grassy expression) to the finish that separates it from some of the sweeter ’Merican-made oktoberfests. It really does help balance out the initial burst of caramel malts well, and even gives a touch of stone fruit flavors. There’s also a distant toffee note on the aftertaste, also. M: I’d call the body medium, the finish semi-dry, and the carbonation bang-on. This one seems to be a bit more savorable than others, too. And it’s still very drinkable, as the style dictates it should be. O: I like this one a lot - it’s well crafted, hoppy, yet balanced very well. There isn’t much more to say other than the fact that it’s quite good.

Unde (902) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2016
Orange slightly hazy colour with small head going to the sides of the glass. Aroma has barley malts, honey, straw. Taste is quite malty with slight honey but a lot of barley and some stingy note which is not very pleasant. Medium body and medium carbonation and.
