Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen

What the brewers say

“An amber beer style developed over 200 years ago to celebrate the original Oktoberfest.”

What our panel thought

“Moist dark-bread nose with some brown-sugar accents. Fresh and malty in one of those obvious but enjoyable ‘they’re brewing today’ ways. Sweet, grainy flavor on medium body, with minimal bitterness. Leans sweet, more like artisanal spent-grain bread than malt beverage.”

What our editors thought

“Light bready nose with faint caramel notes in the nose. The sip is bright with a touch of sweetness tempered by a woody hop, toasted-malt character that keeps it in check.”
