Clear, but slightly dulled copper, with streams of tiny bubbles elevating from the bottom of the glass. A nearly white head maintains like a lid.
Malty and sweet, but with a hint of alcohol on the nose - some faint skunk too.
The maltiness comes through clean, with an abundance of creaminess, but also some hops that comes through like muted citrus.
Relatively crisp with subtle carbonation, which does little to promote the flavors that are here.
In all, it's drinkable, but nothing outstanding - another Ofest in a crowded market of them.

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
