3.95/5  rDev +2.1%

A: Pours a clear deep amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted, caramel, and bready malts with a slightly stronger aroma of spicy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready, caramel, and toasted malts (in descending order of strength) with minimal amounts of sweetness present. That is followed by moderate flavors of spicy hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amount of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink and sessionable, definitely a nice example of the style and a beer that I could easily have over and over again - kind of reminds me of time spent at Oktoberfest in Munich in 2000.

A: The beer poured clear amber in color with a thin white head that quickly faded away leaving a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. A moderate to high amount of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles.
S: There are light aromas of bready and caramel malts in the nose along with some hints of spicy hops.
T: The overall taste is very balanced between some malty sweetness with notes of caramel in the initial taste followed by a subtle amount of bitterness in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a medium level of carbonation.
D: Drinking this beer is a breeze; it goes down very smoothly, which makes it very sessionable.

Bottle poured into an Ayinger glass ( I don't have a Paulaner glass so I decided to at least a glass from the Munich area)

One finger white foam quickly settles to a nice layer of white bubbles with good lacings. Tiny bubbles carbonate a clear copper brown liquid .

Aroma of sweet malts. Caramel & bread with a whiff of spicy hops.

Sweet malts on the back and sides of the tongue. Smooth finish.

Low sudsing, medium body , clean finish.

Love this time of the year when the sweet Marzens of Octoberfest appear. Very easy drinking, smooth and a great reason to fill up " Ein Mass" and sit under some linden trees in a bier garden. prosit!

Not bad with it's deep color, average head and ok lacing. Malty sweet nose. Taste with a touch of spice biterness and bready malts. Pretty balanced, and a decent beer
