SHANER4 (507) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2007
12oz bottle- Poured a redish orange color with small head that quickly faded. Fruity aroma with a grape and plum taste. A little spicy on the tongue and fairly smooth going down. Leaves a warm feeling in my belly. A nice fall beer. Flavor was slightly watered down to make it a great beer. joe1510 (501) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Hacker-Pschorr’s Oktoberfest poured a very light copper. This is one of the clearest beers I have ever seen. 1 finger micro bubble head that took a little time to dissolve. What make this beer look good Is how clear it is.
The smell is malty and sweet.That’s about all I’m getting from it. It has a pretty weak nose on it.
The taste is alright It’s a little lacking as well but there’s bready qualities followed by just a touch of sweetness and it seems like a little fruit. There’s a bitterness at the end that is coming from roasted malt.
The mouthfeel is good. It’s medium bodied with that chalky texture. One of the better aspects of this brew.
Drinkability is a little above average but nothing special. It’s a beer you could drink a lot of considering the texture and mouthfeel but when you bring the taste and smell into it would you really want to?

pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. Light malt and grass aroma. Full malt flavor with some modest hop bitter to counter. Pleasant bittersweet finish. Very well balanced. Probably the best Oktoberfest I’ve had yet. Good beer! Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Orange color with a medium sized tan head. Malty scent. A nice caramel taste is there, but has an awful metallic aftertaste behind it, spoiling an otherwise very nice beer. einherjar (500) - Rijeka, CROATIA - OCT 22, 2017
On tap. Red amber color with small white head. Aroma malt, caramel. Taste medium sweet, malt, roasted malt, caramel, medium body, bitter-sweet finish. Although it's not my favourite beer style, this one is very good, much better then other I drank.

12 oz bottle pours a medium golden brown with a small fluffy white head. Wheat aroma with some clove. Slightly sour, with wood, walnut, and caramel. Almost chewy but not thick. Slight hop bitterness with a dryness at the swallow. Fullpintofbeer (497) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Tap @Barley Mow, Bristol.
Small white head, amber colour, clear. Aroma: roaste malts, toffee, bit of berries. Lightly bitter with lightly sweet aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation, quite smooth, nice. MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Very similar to the Spaten. I think the hoppiness in this one is better, but the Spaten I tried may have been tainted. This tastes quite good though. One of the best Marzen I've tasted so far. mickmac (491) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear dark amber body with big off-white head. Aroma-taste; malt forward sweetish light caramel, toast with a long sweetish toasty malt finish. Medium bodied; mdoerate carbonation. TH28 (488) - - AUG 20, 2016
330ml bottle. 10/16 best by date. Appearance: Deep Amber, perfectly clear, with a moderate white foam head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Rich caramel maltiness, a touch of toast, and a strong dark fruit of plum and cherry.
Taste: Deep, rich caramel and bready maltiness, a light toasted bread, and a moderate fruitiness that’s a blend of cherry and raisin. Tastes like tea on the finish. Low bitterness is just enough to prevent this beer from being too sweet
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, definitely heavier than some fellow Marzens, with a low to moderate carbonation.
Finish: Very bready with a touch of toast on the finish, and tea leaves.
Overall: Top notch Marzen. Leaves a fruity and tea like flavor that is typical for a German made Marzen, and less emphasis on the toast and roast qualities. Very easy drinking and perfect for a cool fall afternoon
