3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Whenever I drink a Hacker Pschorr beer I think about the history, and the fact that I am drinking this beer almost 600 years after the brewery was founded. That's a lot of time to get it right. This beer is made for mass production of course, but it's solid nonetheless and I can't help but think of the hundreds of Oktoberfests and the patrons who have enjoyed it there. This one is officially in my annual Oktoberfest rotation for life.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the 9-27 Munich Oktoberfest. Found a few open seats at the Hacker-Pschorr tent after searching tents for an hour and stayed there the whole time. Drank way too many liters of this.......... Anyway, poured a clear golden color with a huge foamy white head on each. Aroma of straw and grass, wheat, and some hidden fruits in the background. Taste was straw, wheat, some pear, and a hint of barnyard. Body felt light, but boy did I get filled up from drinking these all day. Fun experience and decent beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
QUite bland and boring with an overall toasted malt, light citrus hop and grassy German backbone. Pours a golden yellow with a frothy, soapy off white head that leaves tons of lacing around the glass. The nose is grainy and cereal based with light noble hops and mild citrus. Easy to sip and a nice well balanced medium bodied lager. Nothing exciting, but good overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) from State Line Liquors, MD. This didn’t seem like a typical Oktoberfest beer; it was hoppier and lighter in color...almost seeming intermediate between a Pilsner and Oktoberfest, but stronger. Aroma is moderately hoppy, with a moderate malt presence. Some interesting fruity notes come out, but overall quality is boozy, with the alcohol strongly evident in the aroma. There is also a muted bitter finish that I dislike, and a heaviness. Good, enjoyable, but by far the least exciting beer I’ve tried from Hacker-Pschorr...their other beers have been consistently a notch up from this one...but on the other hand, I had them on tap in Germany and this one I got in the US from a bottle.
