3.98/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into an Erdinger weizen glass.

A: Pours a crystal clear copper with a faint head that quickly turns to lace. This looks like the perfect Oktoberfest.

S: An aroma of alcohol soaked, dried fruit spirals into my nose. There is a definite sweetness from the malt, and the alcohol is noticeable, but the fruit scents add a layer of complexity not found in many American marzens.

T: Tastes like mildly spicy sweet malt. There is some lingering fruit in the aftertaste, like a faint banana or dates, but the taste is super clean. Nice balance with a wash of bitterness in the swallow.

M: Very clean and crisp tasting, and it washes down smooth. The mouthfeel is not as complex as the taste and smell, but it's crisp and light for a fall brew. Alcohol sting takes away very little.

D: It's tasty, looks great and given the season we're in, could be consumed by the keg. (and can, and should, if you have the means)

It became clear to me after having this brew why Paulaner is among the big 3 of German brewers to define the Oktoberfest-Marzen style with this more than appropriate and highly regarded fall offering.
