(Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen) Swing top bottle 500 ml at home, served into a dimpled mug. ABV 5.8%
Amber coloured body, clear, with a big and thick off-white head with average retention.
On the aroma sweet malts, caramel and toffee, biscuit.
Nice taste, light caramel, toffee, biscuit, german hops.
Medium body, good carbonation, pleasantly dry on the palate.
Good. ciocanelu (2529) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 8, 2016
Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma is mainly malty with some alcohol. Taste starts with bread crust and some caramel. Overall it’s really balanced between sweet and bitter. Body is medium and carbonation is quite low for the style. Really simple and boring. Druss (20) - Woodcroft, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2016
Aroma leaves a tad to be desired, love the appearance. Great head, dissipates fast though. Taste is a medium bitter with a long finish. My fave Oktoberfestbier. Love this. 5.8ABV but hides it well. Nice caramelisation, perfect with a burger or schweinhaxe hauxe (761) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2015
A mellow and slightly sweet Märzen beer. Seems richer and sweeter as you proceed. Leaves a dry aftertaste. Good but by no means great. Gubihumle (602) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Fad på die Wiesn i Munchen. Farven er gyldengul og skumkronen er hvid. Aromaen er malt, karamel og brød medens smagen er malt og tørret frugt. For sødlig til min smag.

Flavour: Malt, caramel, some dried fruit.
Medium body. Amber colour. Toasty taste with malt, caramel and a bit of nutty flavour. Balanced taste Frank (4194) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2015
I never get these as fresh as I’d like but this seems to be doing pretty OK. It’s clear amber in color w/ a thick, creamy white head and lots of lace. It has a mildly nutty malt character and succeeds in being fairly malty w/o being all kinds of sweet. This is balanced by a nice dose of earthy/herbal hops. This is medium bodied w/ somewhat brisk carbonation, nice and flavorful and very drinkable. Pedrens (220) - SPAIN - DEC 3, 2015
Aromas, dulces, malta, herbales con punto ahumado/tostado, en boca mismas sensaciones, con más dulzor, y final más seco. Me gusta bastante, fácil de beber. Bien compensada ryanfolty (2553) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2015
November 26, 2015 - bottle from Chuck. Light brown pour with some head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel and grain.
