I really most oktoberfest marzen but this on special.

Appearance=Red/orange in color and two finger head.

Smells=smell caramel and herbs and a hint of vanilla

Taste =. The taste has nice sweet and bitter balance, with malty, caramel and sourdough. It followed by light aromatic bitterness that complements the finish

Mouthfeel =The carbonation is soft which make for a very smooth texture

Overall= It is very very smooth,this is great oktoberfest marzens that you can enjoy. Very well done !

I will start right out and admit that this is one of my all-time favorite beers. It is a gorgeous pour with a nice amber color topped with a creamy head, The aroma is malt dominated with a warm caramel aroma lingering above the hop spiciness. The tast is why I love this beer, a full explosive malt flavor dominated with rich caramel and subtle hops spiciness lingering in the mouth. When the first hints of fall are in the air, I could come back to this rich and flavorfull beer again and again. Now if only I could sample the Paulaner Oktoberfest in Germany!
