From a 12 oz bottle marked “Hofbrau Munchen - Oktoberfest” perhaps a variation of labeling from “Oktoberfestbier.” Into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass, golden clear color with moderate precipitating carbonation fuelling a small head of white foam. Pleasant nose of sweet malt with a small hint of citrus hops in the background. Mouth is similarly malt-forward with hops asserting at the back with a clean, dry, subtle bitterness. Mouth is pleasingly crisp and quenching. Overall: Nothing to write home about but overall a very enjoyable brew. Would try again.

Pours a crystal clear and semi-orange golden yellow with a pillowy two finger head of foam.

Richly toasted malts and noble hop spicy aromas.

Noble hops lend a touch of earthy/herbal flavor as well as a hint of citrus pith, but the sweet toasted malts take front stage.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, tight carbonation, satisfyingly drinkable.

Overall, while this is certainly not the greatest marzen I've had it's definitely on par with the style and highly crushable.
