3/5  rDev -24.1%

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

Sampled this evening on 9/27/14. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle. From Hacker-Pschorr Bräu GmbH in Munich, Germany. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "Texas Boot".

Pours a nice darker amber in color with a good 2-finger foamy off-white head that last while before settling down to a good 3mm head. Lots of sticky lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the sides of the 'Texas Boot'. The aroma is of roasted malts, some spice, with a slight metallic/mineral aroma as well. The taste has even a bit more going on with some bready yeast and some caramel malts in the mix as well. Crisp and clean and goes down pretty easy and you don't taste the metallic / mineral aroma. Medium bodied with good carbonation as there are some large bubbles rising up from the bottom and sides of the boot. Overall, a very good Oktoberfest brew.
