We tried this beer out at our pub. For those that have visited Munch, it's tough to find a much more recognizable noun than Hofbrau. It's easier to say and spell than the Marienplatz Glockenspiel, is it not? And it's just a few blocks away.

So I think that's part of why this beer's special. It's not the most flavorful German Oktoberfest. I'd give that nod to Spaten. But, still, it's solid. Marzen beer's don't have to be amber and caramelly. They're the brewer's idea of what should be drank during Oktoberfest. And here's Hofbrau's version.

A light-honey colored body. a decent, bright white head. Smells of barley malt with a hint of grass. Taste is smooth yet full. There are definitely some hops that hit the back of the tongue. A nice balance, indeed.

No, this is not the most flavorful Marzen around, but if I were in Germany on a hot summer day, listening to um-pa-pa bands and swaying side to side with the other people at my table, this is probably what I'd be drinking.

Another beer I'm shocked I haven't gotten around to reviewing.

On tap at The Seehund. Pours a translucent light amber color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is malty with some honey, sweet bread, caramel and floral hop notes. The taste is floral hops followed by the malts. Caramel and honey towards the end with a bit of floral hops. Medium bodied. Overall, great representation of the style.
