Pours clear, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is dark bread, white bread, and white sugar. Medium-light bodied, moderate carbonation, and sweet. Makes for an excellent, clean lager. Could do several of these. A classic.

If you are on this site reading reviews like this I figure you know something about beer. This is just a good, solid traditional Munich Marzen. Very true to style! It's not Paulaner (but really, what else is?), but very solid for this category. Good Autumn session beer around a firepit in October in the great state of Minnesota!! ENJOY!

a: super clear straw yellow color with a 2-3 finger frothy off white head

s: sweet grains, grass, lemongrass, caramel, and fresh dough

t: follows the nose nicely. sweet grains and caramel dominate the flavor. a nice doughy flavor behind that with a little bit of grassy earthiness. a little bit of lager spice towards the end

m: light mouthfeel with medium carbonation

o: very smooth beer which is easy to drink. nice sweet malts and grains make this a nice seasonal beer

Surprisingly smooth over the tongue and on the pallet. Golden, clear non-diffused color. Pours a manageable head from the finely detailed bottle from Munchen.
Not unlike Erdinger which I used to have kegs of at our annual Oktoberfest in past Septembers. Very repeatable bier.

Pours a pale gold color with a thin white head.

Smells a lot like a lager, perfume and floral scents.

Taste is weak malt presence with mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light and clean.

Overall a good fall seasonal. I prefer more of a robust malt flavor

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear golden amber body, with pure white, 2 inch foamy head. Minimal lacing with bubbles rising to top
Smell is mainly hoppy and typical german
Taste is good, malty with notes of fall flavors. Slight metallic aftertaste. Ends with balanced bitterness.
Body is light-medium, carbonation not overpowering

Would go great with german meats or roast meal.

11.2oz bottle L165 R 07:14
Poured into a dimpled stein shows a clear amber body with sheets of rising bubbles and floats a generous 2in white foamy head.

Aroma is airy, light bready malt, and a slight hop flower.

Flavors match with, unfortunately, a hint of a metallic taste.

Mouthfeel is a lighter leaning medium with a mostly clean finish; a lingering malty aftertaste remains.

Overall, I am nit picking my favorite style. An all day drinker for wurst, kraut, and drinking songs.

bottle date code 165R (6/14/18); reviewed 9/17/18

Look- clear light golden with a frothy white head that settles to a thin coating on top of the beer

Aroma- slightly sweet crusty white bread; grassy and spicy hops

Taste- follows the nose with gentle crusty white bread and grassy, spicy hops with a moderate bitterness; Everything is perfectly balanced and kind of becomes one, if that makes sense

Feel- medium-bodied and carbonated, semi-dry and mildly bitter finish

Overall- exceptional festbier that I could drink all day. Perfect balance.

Clear, light gold , orange color. Body is just below medium, carbonation is also close to medium .
Aroma is malt, bread, floral, grassy, hops .
Taste follows the nose, has a mild sweetness that is matched well with the mild hop element. There is a yeasty bread, grain flavor that works really well .
Overall it was a tasty beer that was a decent fall seasonal beer
