Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen – Märzen (5.8%) – Paulaner (Germany)
App: Pours an absolutely clear amber brown with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly leaving a soapy ring of foam and minimal lacing up the glass. Pretty standard looking.
Smell: Sligtht breadiness with some high buttery aromas. Light hints of caramel and molasses. Deep grain aromas typical of darker lagers. Dark honey like sweetness as beer warms.
Taste: Essentially follows nose with considerably more intensity. Sweet overall with massive honey, molasses, and burnt sugar flavors. Malts are slightly bready overall with a definitive grain taste. Hops are hidden behind sweetness and only reveal themselves in the aftertaste which turns a sweet fore and true taste into a pleasantly balanced after taste that is clean and crisp. Raw wort comes through a lot, as the lager yeast doesn't muck it up. Fairly light and drinkable overall, but very well balanced.
Mouth: Medium to medium-heavy for the style. Thick, but doesn't cling to the palate. Carbonation is medium-heavy as well and makes for a very refreshing brew.
Home tasting, 11.2oz bottle into Tulip. 2/7/14
Serving type: bottle
