Hacker-Pschorr Original Oktoberfest pours to a beautiful, deep amber color with a thick and creamy white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic, it is just loaded with toasty/nutty malt aroma. The palate is as wonderful with lots of big, hearty, nutty/toasty malt flavors on a clean and round body. HP Ofest finishes with more of those fantastic nutty/toasty malt flavors, and ends with a touch of dry herbal bitterness to round out those great malt flavors. Perfection. It is hard to improve on a tried and true orignal marzen/Oktoberfestbier, and it is why I love the imported German examples so much. Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest just might be the bench mark example of what marzen, as a style, is all about. This beer is the perfect match with spit roasted pork, BBQ, steaks, stews, or any hearty Fall/Winter dish.

A friend bought this beer to sample and we drank the whole 6 pack. Great tasting German beer with a slight bitter taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a beer that is much better on tap than out of the bottle. These ratings reflect the tap version, which outshines Paulaner, Spaten, and the rest by a good margin.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 On Tap @ Mr. Dunderbak’s, Sarasota Square Mall (in 1983). Alongside Spaten Optimator, this is the 2nd best beer i have ever tasted (at the time). I’ve only had it on tap, but i’m sure it’s very good in the bottle as well. Malty, sweet, smooth, Bavarian goodness! Highly recommended,

From cervezasespeciales. In Bavaria glass. Watching Los Soprano 4x02. Deliciously malty, sweet with a good bite of hops to compensate and a superb drinkability. My new prefered marzen

This brewery can do no wrong. A marvelous amber marzen with plenty of fantastic aromas coming out of the glass (or in my case, the plastic cup). A malty mouthfeel with hints of chocolate. A real winner! Tons o' malty goodness here. My favorite marzen/okto, hands down!
