330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear medium copper with a half finger white head. While the lacing is not really there, head retention is good.

Aroma has caramel and toast along with a healthy shot of wet glass. Very true to the style.

The flavor doubles down on the attributes in the aroma with a very nice biscuity malt character and awesome grassy hop flavors. Moderate bitterness balances out the malty sweetness and gives this great drinkability.

Overall, one of the better German Marzens available in the U.S. One of the standards of the style.

Of the many Oktoberfest biers - this one is on top! I love the slightly sweet finish of this beer. The finish is slightly more robust than some of the other Oktoberfest biers.
Although - tasted back to back with Hoffbrau they are both very similar.
I have not had the chance to try the Augustiner Brau Oktoberfest -
Ohne geht no!

Flavor, aroma, mouth feel. This one hits all the important high points for me. Rich, chocolate nose. A combination of sweet and bitter overtones beautifully balanced. Rich caramel flavors. Lovely carbonation--it is enough to notice without distracting from flavor and aroma. An almost perfect cool-weather brew.
