This is maybe the first German Oktoberfest beer that I had - but I must say that it isn't as good as an Austrian märzen...
German beers have a sort of sickening sweetnedd and yeast overtone that was also taken over by many Euro Lagers and what I don't like... so although this beer feels quality, it is somewhat a letdown compared with their Austrian counterparts (those are being much hoppier and fresh). Wonder why there is such a cult of German beers...

Pours gold, great clarity, small head.

Lightly sweet, touch of floral hop. Inoffensive.

Taste brings more malt character, some golden syrup sweetness, touch of bitterness.

Full body that suits it well,, some slickness, nice carb.

Overall it's ok, and at 6.1% it's lacking in flavour, aroma and any sort of sessionability.

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

Pours a clear golden color with small top off white headbthat disolves rather quickly. Aroma is sweet with bready malts,grass,hay and some herbal notes. The flavours sweet and malty it finishes off with some herbal hop and a mild bitterness. Aftertaste disappear rather quickly. medium carbonated with a medium body. smooth and clean mouthfeel, but a little bland. All in all is a rather good and drinkable oktoberfestbier, but not very exiting. Easy to drink some off these in a session.

Pours a golden, filtered colored beer with a soon vanishing head.

Nose is pretty muted, some straw and a faint note of herbal hops, almost nothing is going on here.

Has a medium, yet lively carbonation with a light, refreshing, but sweet mouthfeel.

Tastes of sweet, cakey malts coated straw and a bright mineral quality. Finishes wheaty sweet, with a faint, late dryness, which remains almost unrecognizable.

Boring, pretty thin for its higher abv and one-dimensional, with no taste evolution at all.

Aroma doesn’t come through but flavor does, slightly bitter, but delicious. pours and looks great, thick head, and lots of lacing on the glass. Good, but other Munich brews are slightly better....

Crystal clear golden color with white head. Classic bread crust and honey on the aroma. Taste starts with a slight honey sweetness, follows with grains and bread and finishes slightly bitter. Body and carbonation are medium. No doubt it's a well made beer but still, Märzen / Oktoberfest beers are not a style I enjoy too much.

Can from Hipercor. In Paulnaer glass. At lunch. With Papas Aliñás and Turkey nuggets. Ultradrinkable. Nice taste without much bitterness. Avg 3.95

29 Oct 2017. Can. From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. At lunch, with rice with shrimps. Very drinkable, with fresy grassy hoppyness. A bit less malty than others in the style but very refreshing
