look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Crystal clear orange with a brilliant thick white head. Dissipates to a film quickly and laces nicely.

S: Bready and oktoberfest-y... yep, I'm going with that. Can smell some booze in there too.

T: Perfectly balanced between lager yeast taste, malt, and bitterness. Lots of caramel, toasty bread, some other stuff...

M: Slightly hot and slightly over carbonated for me. Very creamy, almost coats the mouth with deliciousness.

O: Wow, great beer. One of my favorite versions of my favorite style. "One" could drink many of these in succession, and right now I am the "one".

500ml bottle poured in a Weizen glass.

A: Pours a dark orange to amber color forming a big yellow creamy and bubbled head. Medium retention. A very thin layer remains for a moment and many lacings are formed and left around

S: Very grainy and toffee in the nose. Lager yeasts makes it quite bready and biscuity. Notes of flowery hops

T: Sweet and toffee upfront. Caramel malts, bread, biscuits, Lager yeasts, citrus hops, good smooth hops bitterness

M: Light to medium body. Slightly molasses. Medium carbonation. Excellent grainy and little bit hoppy aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent Oktoberfest specimens. Hacker-Pschorr quality. Prost!

From a bottle poured into a pint glass, this is a translucent caramel brown color. Smell is sweet grains and caramel. Taste is mellow and sweet, mostly brown sugar and bread. Almost no hop profile. Light bodied and easy to drink, this is a very enjoyable version of the style.

First time I've had this style and it's decent but not necessarily great to me as I'm not familiar with the style. The appearance is a nice brownish-yellow. The smell is a sweet yeasty bready nose. The tongue leans toward a yeasty sweetness, not overwhelmingly sweet but a mellow sweet. I'm liking this as the sipping continues. Mouthfeel is a thin/medium, not very watery. Overall this is decent and will have again. Certainly sessionalbe with the low abv.

Pouring an impressive deep copper color, Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest-Märzen proudly displays an abundant deep mocha colored head with massive lacing.
Bready and doughy on the nose, the understated but ample hopping provides perfect balance and structure to this brew. Deliciously malty and slightly mapled, this brew is very inviting and easily consumed and is right up there with the best in the world.
At 5.8 Abv. it's no laggard within the ranks of this widely imitated style.
An absolute must try!
