Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen
Brewed By: Paulaner Brauerei
Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
Deep brown amber color when poured into a Maß with a perfect amount of head. Smooth and sweet malty aroma with notes of caramel. Tastes a bit more plain with some bready notes and a bit of caramel and toffee. Perfect amount of carbonation. Hearty beer that drinks well.
This one brings me back to München! Paulaner has some bigger hops than some of its beer brothers but it doesn't balance overall. It's enjoyably smooth and is probably why my friends and I spent the majority of our time in the Paulaner tent. I might have a biased opinion on this beer.
This beer has a nice mouthfeel with a clean finish. It is not bitter and has a nice golden amber color. There is not much of an aroma.

Head leaves somewhat quickly, some nice lacing. Nice malty sweetness with just enough bitterness to balance. Light copper color. Good carbonation, nice mouthfeel.
Basic Oktoberfest but good as a simple beer to get into the Oktoberfest spirit.
