A-Golden amber, with a little fuzzy white head. Needs more head! I like head! Leaves decent lacing despite the fact that there really wasn't much to have put it on the sides of the glass. Interesting.
S-Malt, caramel, ginger and cinnamon. Just as it was last year! I give them props for repeatability.
T- Malty, nutty, smooth and clean.
M-Light to medium, its a nice relaxing brew, and since I'm German as they come, its part of my yearly duty to buy this beer.
D- VERY Drinkable. Going downstairs for another one right now. Has a little bit of a cloying sticky finish but guess what, the next one will take care of that!
As far as traditional practice is concerned for this brew, I feel that its a little bit toned down and geared towards the general public. It is the best selling Oktoberfest Marzen six pack at my store, with the only other better selling Okto-Marz being Ayinger; I see this brew as a good way to introduce people to the style and tradition.
This is the 200th annual Oktoberfest in Bavaria, PROST!

3.5/5 rDev -2.5%

Clear golden color with a thick two finger head with decent retention and leaving some laces.
Floral aroma with notes of Munich malt sweetness and lager yeast.
Flavor is more present with notes of biscuit malt with controlled sweetness balanced by herbal and floral hops. Just a hint of caramel, spices and citrusy acidity. Mildly dry aftertaste with a light to medium bitterness.
Light bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation.
A pleasant Märzen, although quite malty it is not cloying, showing that hops are doing their work behind the curtains. Faithful to style.
