Pours a rusty copper color. Thin off white head. Substantial lacing. Aroma of bread, nuts, and rye.

I had tried both Paulaner and Ayinger Octoberfest Marzens prior to Hacker-Pschorr. I thought the other two were very good but this was noticeably better in aroma and taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap at Prost! Boise. Amber borwn with a modest soapy off-white head. Nice toasted malt and some honey like sweetness. A littel biter bite at the end. A good example of a style that is usually not my favorite.
