A much lighter and MUCH sweeter version of the Marzen style than I am used to. A little watery on the mouthfeel for the style as well. Overall, a decent beer, but so far my least-favourite Oktoberfest yet.

Presentation: 1 pint Euro-style brown bottle. Freshness on the front label.

Appearance: Clear and bright amber beer with a rather large foam head with decent retention. Carbonation bubbles are quite large.

Smell: Metallic, mineral, soft floral hops and toasted malts in the background.

Taste: Light-bodied, soft and smooth on the palate. Mildly malty with notes of caramel and loads of toasted malt flavour. Hops are also mild, with little bitterness and a flowery character that blends very complementary with the malt flavours to create a distinct tea-like flavour. Things go a bit bready as the beer warms. Then more metallic and mineral flavours fill in the gaps and fall into the finish, along with some malt and hop residuals.

Notes: This is Hacker-Pschorr's year round Oktoberfest offerning, not to be confused with their seasonal Oktoberfest-Märzen. It's a perfect Oktoberfest, brewed with enjoyment and a session of drinking in mind -- not strong and very drinkable.
